About Clodine Crafts

Hi. I'm Clodine of Clodine Crafts in Portland, Oregon. I design travel, commuting and lifestyle accessories for men and women - including for their bikes, boots, devices, drinkware, and more!

The majority of my goods are made with Pendleton® Fabric. Why? Because I'm a fan of the excellent quality and designs of these iconic fabrics. Plus, I'm lucky to live within a comfortable bike ride of a fantastic Pendleton® Woolen Mill Store. There, I buy first-quality fabrics, as well as scraps direct from the mill.

For me, it is fun to mix media and eras in compelling combinations, or to create a unique take on a current trend. My inventive "Belt Clip Strap ID/Key Holder" has a heavy-duty, stainless steel claw hook attached to a light but sturdy wool or denim strap in place of a heavy chain. My all-original Boot Cuffs combine wool or denim with lace trim and leather-like ties.

I enjoy devising ways to up-cycle materials I collect. And, the intersection of aesthetic with function fascinates me. For instance, the large Wrap/Shawl is reversible, pre-shrunk, comes with a vintage wooden kilt pin, and can also serve as a table runner. Headbands and Biking Ankle Bands are reversible, too, to accommodate how patterns have a stronger/softer expression from one side to the other.

From unique Bike Top Bar Covers (weather-worthy and fit most any bike), to a variety of ID/Key Holders and Lanyards, the personal needs and fashion sense of the funky-elegant individual are well tended.

How did this endeavor start?

One day, I stopped by my local Pendleton® store that receives scraps from the mill; the next, I started collecting (stockpiling?) and experimenting - so much so (or sew) that I taught myself how to use a serger-type sewing machine.

First, I created the wide, reversible Headband (especially good for running or wearing under a bike helmet); I made these for myself for my own commute, and then for loved ones. Next, the Biking Ankle Band, and a custom Lanyard for a work ID. Then... my clever husband requested a Top Bar Cover for his bicycle. Other custom work and a few craft fairs later, the creative ideas continue to flow.

If you have any questions or special requests or needs, feel free to contact me. Custom and wholesale orders welcome.

    By day, I'm a busy executive in non-profit who periodically bike commutes. All my life, on the side, I've pursued fine art and crafts in a myriad of forms (from traditional Japanese Sumi-e painting to pencil drawings, jewelry-making and knitting.)
