    About

    Fun Zipper Pouches and Paper Party Supplies, Handmade with Love in Montclair, NJ by Claire Cohen.

    Claire from Montclair...I grew up in Montclair, NJ, went away for college, and returned.

    Now I combine the skills I learned as a Weaving and Textile Design major at Rochester Institute of Technology with a big dose of humor and a touch of color.

    My products fuse nostalgia with snark to create signature products that are Montclair Made!

    My banner is a collage I created from photographs of signage I took around Montclair.

    Much of my material is sustainably sourced! Repurposed denim and vintage fabrics for the zipper pouches. Vintage sheet music, National Geographic atlases, and vintage field guides are material for the paper garlands. Vintage calendar tea towels are material for my one-of-a-kind bird ornaments. Tshirts find new life as unique back packs. Repurposed beer promo banners donated from a local bar are transformed into utilitarian shaving kit bags!

    When I create the zipper pouches I sew the notebook paper lines first, then I hand embroider the cursive letter words, and then I sew the zipper pouch. When I make my products it's like a meditation through repetition that I thoroughly enjoy!
