Laura's work is one of my favorites. Each piece is always more beautiful that I anticipate and a sheer pleasure to wear. Top of the list Etsy retailer!
Hier Apparel is a Seattle, WA based women's apparel and accessory label founded in 2007. I'm self taught and my work is always evolving. I draw inspiration from my imagination and experiences, as well as the past and the past's perception of the future. My designs are modern and minimal, but rooted in an appreciation for organic geometry and it's ever present reflection in modern culture and urban infrastructure. I focus on everyday wearable garments with simple shapes and unexpected details.
Hier Apparel is derived from hier, a Greek prefix meaning sacred and stands to magnify the elemental qualities and interconnectedness of everything around us.
Owner, Designer, Maker, All Around One Woman Show
Creative human animal who has managed to retain some child-like sense of awe as I wander along the path in search of peace, happiness and the wisdom to let go.
All designs are original and 100% handmade by me in my home studio. All items are Made To Order unless otherwise specified in their listing. You will almost never receive the piece shown in photos, unless the listing specifies that the piece is ready to ship. All fabrics are pre-washed using a gentle and natural detergent.
Please check my announcements for current completion times, but feel free to contact me if you are hoping to receive something by a certain date.
Some of my pieces are constructed with intentionally raw edges. The edges will fray and weather over time, but the fraying will stop once it reaches the stitching and the durability of the piece shouldn't be affected. It is okay to trim frayed strands to your liking. Most Obi bags are constructed this way unless otherwise stated in the listing. Most Obi's can be offered with a more finished appearance for a higher price.
