Announcement   Thank you for visiting my shop!
I make each leather pouch, tote and baby shoe myself, block-printing the leather with my own hand-carved blocks, and sewing them all on a vintage industrial compound-feed walking foot machine.
Block-printing is a meditative practice for me, and I have recently added dye-printed baby clothes to my line. Hope you and your baby enjoy!
Please visit my website for more info on where to buy more styles and colors:

About

ARC of LA

In the Summer of 2011, after 2 years straight touring with my band, The Chapin Sisters, and as a band member in She & Him, I came home to Los Angeles, and started sewing. Having spent so much time traveling, I just wanted to create things with my hands again, and hang out in my apartment.
ARC of LA grew out of this time spent painting, sewing, knitting, dyeing, hiking, doing yoga, and getting back into the space of home. A lifelong interest in pattern design and printmaking finally took form, as I carved the blocks and began printing repeating designs first on fabric, then on buttery leather.
What began as a hobby, making pouches for my own use, and gifts for my sisters and friends, soon took off in its own small way, and I began selling my creations at some of my favorite stores and artist spaces in LA, New York City and San Francisco. In the past year, in time off the road, I have been expanding my line, and continuing to grow my little business from the ground up. Look for me in stores from Marfa to Tokyo!
