Shop policies

Last updated on April 16, 2011
Baconhouse produces handmade bags and custom handbags using individually selected vintage, organic, designer, and remnant fabrics. Bags are original, one-of-a-kind pieces or made in small, limited-edition batches.

Baconhouse bags are strictly vegan - no leather or other animal products are used to make our bags ever.

Baconhouse is the brainchild of Heather Micka-Smith, and her partner, Seth.

About Heather:

Handcrafting artfully designed utilitarian goods has been a recurrent theme in my work as long as I've been creating. My work includes a pencil-shaped pillow (c. 1987), enormous wrap-style raver pants in a 70's plaid wool-blend fabric salvaged from my parent's attic (c. 1993), and a duct-tape cocktail dress (c. 2000).

Then, a BFA in Fashion Design and M.Ed in Visual Arts Education. In these endeavors, I've tried to tow the line between technical perfection and artistic expression. Does this mean bags embroidered with birds? It might.

I also am fortunate to work in textile-based product and concept development for wonderful organizations such as One Earth Designs (, and the Portable Light Foundation ( to further the development of sustainable, textile-based solar energy products.

I continue to be inspired by (the massive piles of) beautiful and recycled textiles (I hoard), useful forms, and the organic and unpredictable process of creating.
