About

We are

SHELTER started in the spring of 2010 in the Mad River Valley of Vermont when we needed a bag to collect the wild edibles and mushrooms we’d been gathering. In autumn 2010, we moved from the Green Mountains to live in the mountains of western North Carolina.

We’re here to offer you well-crafted, beautiful, and thoughtful designs that are elegant, rustic, and timeless.

Karie Reinertson earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts and has exhibited her paintings and illustrations in numerous shows in Washington DC, San Francisco, CA, and Portland, OR. Prior to SHELTER, she worked for an environmental design non-profit, was a design/build intern and chef for a design/build school in Vermont, and traveled extensively internationally, volunteering for environmental education centers. She is currently designing and making handbags that focus on quality, sustainable, and local materials whenever possible.

Robert Maddox is a trained architect, earning his Masters in Architecture. He worked for a sustainable design firm in Brooklyn, NY for four years before moving to Vermont to work with a design/build school. He is a designer/builder and teaches a home design/build course in Vermont each summer.

Please follow our blog to learn more about the incredible people who make up SHELTER. We like them a lot, and think you will too.
