Aura Matic's Profile
I live in Florida and I'm inspired by the tropical weather and the beach. I make clothing that are unique and fun to wear. New materials and fabric is where I start but I try to reuse or repurpose fabrics as well.
I learned to sew when I was a child. My grandmother taught me. I would sit at the foot of my Grandma's sewing machine playing with threads and watch her sew. My Grandmother drafted her own patterns and made her own clothes. She taught me to appreciate the craft and talent of making things that are beautiful and useful. Unfortunately, I have sons and no girls to pass on my tradition but who knows maybe when time comes grandaughters may want to learn. After all, this love for sewing skipped my mother altogether. My mother did influence me with her sense of style.
Thank you for your interest my handmade items. I make them with passion and from my heart.
