40thparallel's Shop Announcement

Laurie, an accomplished weaver of wearable and functional textiles and home furnishings, started her journey as an artist in the 1980's, but it wasn't until 2005 that Laurie was struck with the idea of starting a cottage textile business. 40th Parallel Fiber Studio, started that year, represents the merger of Laurie's artistic vision, attention to detail, and passion for quality woven and leather goods.

Rather than relying on complex weaving patterns, the Eaton's textiles are a tribute to the quality and variety of the fiber with which they weave. Their leather creations hold true to that premise with design simplicity that does not detract from the natural beauty of the chosen hides.

Laurie and Peter are committed to supporting American business, and every effort is made to offer handcrafted textiles and leather goods constructed from American grown fiber and American raised and tanned hides. In addition to finishing our leather goods with American made copper and brass fasteners and fittings, we proudly feature LENZIP solid brass zippers as an added measure of quality and durability.

Thank you so much for purchasing and promoting locally made items!! You are endorsing the individual farms, ranches, artisans and families whose creativity and livelihood depends on your generosity! Thank you for your support!
