About PlatypusMax

Print Designs and Handmade Leather Accessories

Platypus Max is the home of maker & designer, Rachel Summers. My studio is located in Lexington, Massachusetts, USA.

I make barrettes and other accessories mainly from leather as well as other repurposed materials. I also work in print, and often find the various media playing off of each other in unexpected ways, each pushing on the other. I love natural textures, especially leaf structures as well as geometric designs, typography and appreciate dry humor.

Eco-friendly practices are central to my philosophy. That is, to keep the carbon footprint of everything I create as low as possible. This means that my core materials are sourced as post and pre-consumer waste, trash-bound relics, and are almost entirely free of new plastic. Packaging is minimal, using only paper when possible. I ship personal orders in upcycled mailers, which community members save for me.

Many of my designs are one-of-a-kind, so check back often to see what’s currently available, or contact me if you have a special request.
