ApRil's Profile

About

ApRi is made up of April and Richer. We met in 2001 in a basil greenhouse and have been in love and crafting together ever since. We are really pumped to bring you handmade products from upcycled coffee bean sacks. It all started in 2008 when our friend came back from Jamaica with some blue mountain coffee. We again fell in love, this time with coffee sacks. We both hand weave, so there was something enchanting about the clean large warp and weft lines of the bags.
The sacks we use are from Rhode Island and parts of New England.We take pride in recycling and using reclaimed fabrics and thread when possible. Everything is sewn in our live/work studio here in downtown Providence, Ri on reclaimed industrial machinery from the 1960s and 70s. Thanks for looking and buying handmade. All goods are made in pet and smoke free area.
