Claire O'Brien - sole maker/human behind Cloud Rabbit Designs

based in Perth East, Ontario, Canada

Facts: I work a full-time day job that I'm very happy at.

Sewing has always been an interest of mine. Growing up, I dabbled in garment-making (without ever referencing an actual pattern). Now, I've made it my primary hobby/passion project.

I focused on bags and accessories as I found them to be an easier product to sell without a ton of customization. I create every one of my products from scratch with my own two hands, my own designs, with utmost care - and a mind in the clouds.

My vision has always been to sew unique, quality products that are practical, affordable, beautiful and vegan friendly using my favourite designer fabrics, cork/faux leathers and canvas. I have focused on making a handful of simple designs that have evolved through my own creative evolution and valued customer feedback.

My "studio" is a small room in our basement. I have no conventional training - I've learned everything I know through YouTube videos, photos and advice from other makers and a LOT of trial and error. Nothing about this venture has been quick or easy or cheap - far from it - but it's the most rewarding thing I've ever done. I'm learning so much every day and I'm filled with ideas and ambition for what's yet to come. While I may be a small operation, I work hard and with LOTS of love for what I do.

Thank you for visiting my website and for taking the time to get to know me and my little handmade business. Your support means a lot and every purchase, big or small, helps to fuel this journey!

Care instructions

For all bags, I recommend spot cleaning when necessary with regular soap and water. Vinyl and faux leathers are water resistant and can be easily wiped clean with a cloth.

I recommend only machine washing your bags when spot cleaning won't do the trick - wash on cold, gentle cycle and place any bags with attached straps or fringe in a delicates bag. Lay flat to dry.

You may iron your bags to get them into shape again but DO NOT iron vinyl or faux leather, it will melt.

**Please be mindful that certain aspects of your bag may wear over time (moreso with daily and/or heavy use) and damage resulting from mistreatment or accident may occur beyond my control which I cannot be held accountable for and may not be able to repair.**

Do you offer local pickup?
