Announcement   ***EXCITING NEWS!*** onewomanstudio just opened a brick & mortar! Hidden in the heart of downtown Ellsworth, ME at 192 Main St. If you're in the area please stop by and check it out! Open Tues. - Sat. 11am-5pm.

Welcome to onewomanstudio. A great place to shop for one-of-a-kind upcycled and eco-friendly tote bags, home goods, and fashion. Handmade in Maine since 2004.

onewomanstudio is a tiny design and sewing studio nestled in the woods of downeast Maine.
My philosophy is simple: Be good! To yourself, to others, and to the earth.
Recycled, rescued, and repurposed materials - either wholly or in part - are incorporated into all of my creations. Each design is a onewomanstudio original, and each item is unique!
All of my items are thoughtfully designed, expertly crafted, and built to last. I pride myself on the craftsmanship of cutting and sewing each piece by hand, using the simplest of tools: scissors, pins, tape measure, and a trio of vintage sewing machines.

Since making my very first tote bag in 2004, onewomanstudio has been 100% Maine made and uses 100% Maine sourced repurposed materials.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you find something you love!

xo Julia

About

Turning trash into treasure in the Maine woods

Hello. I'm Julia, the one woman behind onewomanstudio! As the name implies, I do it all: hunting and gathering the materials for my creations, designing, sewing, product photos, shipping, vending... The list seems endless sometimes. But I truly love what I'm doing and am very proud of the fact that I can support myself with my craft while also saving a whole bunch of 'trash' from entering the waste stream. Yay!

onewomanstudio is a tiny design and crafting studio, nestled in a corner of the Maine woods. And I'm Julia, the one-woman designer and maker of all things funky, functional, and fabulous at onewomanstudio!

My philosophy is simple: Be good! To yourself, to others, and to the earth.
All of my items are thoughtfully designed, expertly crafted, and built to last.
I use recycled, reclaimed, and repurposed materials - either wholly or in part - in all of my designs, going out of my way not to use any virgin materials except where the design and product strictly calls for it.
Since making my very first tote bag in 2001, onewomanstudio has been 100% Maine made and uses 100% Maine sourced recycled materials.
