Klosti

Handsewn goodies for you and your home

Skokie, Illinois

Announcement    Vintage inspired with a modern twist, my handcrafted goods bring a happy vibe. I have always loved the smile on people’s faces when they realize that my handmade everyday items are recreated in new and unexpected ways. My diverse product line, from utilitarian dish towel dresses to upcycled reTIEd blooms, is united by the quality of materials used and my meticulous attention to detail. My love of sewing and needlework, both by hand and machine, was influenced by my Greek upbringing. In fact, my shop name, Klosti, is the Greek word for thread.

Dish Towel Dresses – Made from quality 100% cotton kitchen towels, dish towel dresses will bring a bit of style, color and whimsy to your kitchen. Great for wiping hands, drying dishes or just looking adorable. Wonderful as a holiday decoration, housewarming or hostess gift!

reTIEd Blooms – These unique upcycled necktie brooches will make a beautiful addition to any outfit. Each petal is carefully hand-stitched to create a lightweight, fiber art accessory that highlights the beautiful color and fabric of the original necktie. Each bloom has the original label from the tie stitched to the back of the brooch. I designed these brooches in memory of an Uncle who was an exceptional florist. I would be delighted to create a custom brooch to memorialize and honor your “family ties.”

Hi and thank you for visiting my shop "Klosti". In Greek klosti means thread and I love working with thread, specifically sewing, though I like other crafts too. I love taking practical everyday items and making them more unique and beautiful.

Everything at Klosti is handmade by only one person, me. I love the process, from start to creative and beautiful finish.
