About Claire

Claire from Montclair...I grew up in Montclair, NJ, went away for college, and returned.

Now I combine the skills I learned as a weaving and textile design major at Rochester Institute of Technology with my desire to repurpose familiar items like cardboard packaging, denim jeans, sheet music, vintage fabric, maps, and sewing patterns. My products fuse nostalgia and sustainability in an effort to green our lives in a creative and colorful way.
