This is such a beautiful bag! AppalachianGap shipped it out almost immediately and it arrived in wrapping paper and a ribbon. The quality is excellent, and it will be perfect for a passport holder! Thanks!
Handmade, practical and probably colorful
Hello and thanks for visiting Appalachian Gap. About 15 years ago we fell in love with the mountains of North Georgia, so we decided to move here. We've been married for almost 40 years. We've been in business together off an on for almost 40 years. We love to travel. We like a lot of the same things but boy do we approach them differently!
Gene is motivated by nature, materials, color and practicality all rolled into one beautiful piece. She is really motivated when she finds a way to re-purpose something like an old sheet, a fence picket or even a plastic grocery bag. Finding out how to do things the way they were done way before so much technology came along intrigues her.
She loves baskets of all kinds but prefers to make baskets out of beautiful fabrics. She doesn't use any glue or a sewing machine. Everything is handwoven, similarly to a pine needle or Native American Basket.
Art likes technology such as drills and saws. He also enjoys making wire baskets by hand and re-purposing scraps of wood. He has turned doors into shelving, wood slats in to wine racks and shingles into coat racks.
We may come at everything from a different point of view, but we both end up with well made one of a kind pieces.
