Announcement   Welcome to onewomanstudio. A great place to shop for one-of-a-kind upcycled and eco-friendly tote bags, home goods, and fashion. Handmade in Maine since 2001.

onewomanstudio is a tiny design and sewing studio nestled in a corner of the Maine woods. And I'm Julia, the 'one woman' designer and maker of all things funky, functional, and fabulous at onewomanstudio!

My philosophy is simple: Be good! To yourself. To others. To the earth.
All of my items are thoughtfully designed, expertly crafted, and built to last.
I use recycled, reclaimed, and repurposed materials - either wholly or in part - in all of my designs, going out of my way NOT to use any virgin materials except where the design and product strictly calls for it.

Since making my very first tote bag in 2001, onewomanstudio has been 100% Maine made and uses 100% Maine sourced repurposed materials.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you find something you love!

I love its softness, colors, and the patchwork wedding. It is a wonderful scarf, which I love it. Its check style is great.

About

Turning trash into treasure in the Maine woods

Hello. I'm Julia, the one woman behind OneWomanStudio! As the name implies, I do it all: hunting and gathering the materials for my creations, designing each and every product, sewing, product photos, shipping, vending... The list seems endless sometimes. But I truly love what I'm doing and am very proud of the fact that I can support myself with my craft while also saving a whole bunch of 'trash' from entering the waste stream. Yay!
