Simple Living With a Burst of Color
SFOLiving was born of a desire to create sustainable products anyone could live with daily and still find delightful after years of use.
I feel this way about vintage and discarded fabrics, still both vibrant and strong. I frequent secondhand stores, estate sales, and the closets and basements of everyone I know to select the best and most inspiring materials. Everything from plush bath towels to the zippers from discarded trousers holds potential to serve another home and avoid the landfill. Each item is crafted with care and tells the kind of story you love to hear again and again.
My workshop has recently relocated to beautiful Sri Lanka as my new husband and I return to his home to start our adventure together.

Owner, Maker, Designer
Welcome! In addition to designing upcycled wares for the home I enjoy gardening, playing the trumpet, and collecting seeds.
As the owner, designer, and craftsman, my mission is to produce quality handmade goods that complement sustainable lifestyles.
All of the products in my store are vintage or handcrafted from deconstructed finds. New materials are used where necessary and organic/eco-friendly when possible.
All materials and their status (vintage, recycled, etc.) are indicated in the product descriptions.
