GrandmaDede's Profile

About

Creating and designing OOAK Bags is my Art and my Passion. I strangely find the whole process transcends my mind and soul to another dimension. It begins with my love of collecting beautiful fabrics such as velvets, tapestries, and upholstery chenilles. I also love collecting beads, buttons, jangly jewelry, trims, tassels, and fringes. The list really goes on and on. My favorite materials to work with are those of an eco-friendly nature (vintage, upcycled or just plain old). I'd like to say I do my small part in conserving natural resources, but the real reason is I just love giving new life to old forgotten things.

I started redesigning clothes at the requests of customers who wanted clothing to match their unique "GrandmaDede" bags. This story begins when I was growng up. Mom made most of my clothing and wearing something newly created by her was special to me. I saw how my clothes…

I started redesigning clothes at the requests of customers who wanted clothing to match their unique "GrandmaDede" bags. This story begins when I was growng up. Mom made most of my clothing and wearing something newly created by her was special to me. I saw how my clothes were made from beginning to end. A long waiting process for a child, but the ending results were always the same amazement! Over the years, I became adept in sewing my own clothes. By the time I was in Jr High School, sewing jackets and coats were my forte. In High School, I started modifying clothes out of necessity and style. I have since grown to love the uniqueness of altered clothing. I would describe my style as a blend of Bohemian, Gypsy, and Hippie. My shop offers unique bags and clothing for women who proudly embrace their beautiful, care-free spirits. Peace and Love!

"Life is the sum of experiences that we encounter as we go through life. Day to day struggles and triumphs are experienced by all of the world's creatures. As human beings, when we encounter a challenge, we have freedom to choose how to react. Every decision that we make leads us down a different road. We will never come to exactly the same crossroads. Every decision that we make has significance. The tiniest choice that we make reverberates throughout the entire universe."
