Hope Hollingsworth's Profile

About

For generations, all of the women in my family have been textile artists...tatters, crocheters, knitters, quilters, seamstresses. I feel sure it's in my DNA.

I adore fabric improv, rarely working with or from patterns. My sewing room is a candy store of fabrics and trims and findings.....and I draw from all of it! I love patchwork. I love wool and other natural fibers. I love leather. I love scavenging for and re-using old fabrics. I love pairing unexpected colors and textures. And I love all folk things...indigenous textiles, folk costume, etc. I am EXCITED about making things.

A few categories you will find in the shop...

Leather: All of my leather goods are made using leather scraps salvaged from cutting room floors of leather companies and upholstery shops…

Wool: I collect, wash, recut lots of different wools and cashmeres to creat hats, jackets, sweaters, vests. This is my passion.

Cotton Jersey: The warm weather counterpart to my wool goods! I especially love to put together every possible assortment of stripes.

Home Dec: I am beyond fortunate to be surrounded, daily, by gorgeous, new, chic interior fabrics. I absolutely cannot resist working with them. Frequently, interior fabrics make prominent appearances in my clothing items. So fun.

I hope you will enjoy wearing and displaying my creations as much as I adore imagining and creating them.
