distinct • durable • vintage + repurposed fabrics
I learned to sew at age twelve with a box of old fabric my aunt had sent me. I learned the basics then quickly worked my way into making bags out of the bright, retro prints I had found in the box. My crowning achievement was successfully installing a zipper. I was so excited by making useful things that were different than everything else. I was obsessed.
In 2011, I started anykind handmade, a small operation offering pouches, clutches, purses, hair bows, and clip-on bow ties all made from vintage, repurposed, and hand printed fabrics. The inspiration for these products begin with the fabrics. Learning to sew with unique, mid-century fabrics from my family, I fell in love with the bold prints, gorgeous colors, textures, and history that they can have.
Creating items with vintage and repurposed fabrics means that everything is truly one-of-a-kind and runs in limited production. I love searching for and creating materials that no one else has seen to make distinct, durable things that add a little organization and fun to everyday life.

Because I use repurposed and vintage fabrics, I have limited quantities of some fabrics and am not able to get more. I might not be able to make a custom order with a certain fabric due to this.
