About

Skirt is Grace Locke Ward and Susan Junis of Iowa City, Iowa. Skirt is rooted in a shared obsession of balancing cute with creepy. We strive to make functional and sturdy art. We sew obsessively. We specialize in making large and small messenger bags, wallets, bibs, quilts, caps, and guitar straps. Our methods include hand and machine sewing, hand-embroidery, applique, and screenprinting. We use as much vintage and second-hand fabric as we can. Designs we currently use include but are not limited to: bird nests, mammary glands, guns/uzis, brass knuckles, razor blades, molotov cocktails, animals (being cute or committing murder/suicide), napping cats, saws, windows, hammers, neil diamond... You can find our goods at White Rabbit (Iowa City), Wholly Craft (Columbus OH), Galactic Boutique (Seattle), Cranky Yellow (St. Louis), and online at www.skirt.etsy.com. We can usually accommodate special orders.
