Beautiful custom made Manitoba piece. My only request was the fabric was a natural/undyed material. The rest was left in Caitlin's incredibly capable, artistic, fun hands. The colours are beautiful and will look fantastic on my wall. Thank you so much, Caitlin!

I decided to hang this one at work directly in my line of vision because I immediately fell in love with it. The detail in the flowers are so pretty and delicate. Again, she selected colours that so naturally worked for me. At this rate, there's no doubt I'm going to have a whole lot of real swanky stuff in my crib!

About

everybody deserves something real swanky, see.

www.youcaring.com/BillSikora - kindly take a moment <3

I began sewing and upcycling at a very young age. Money doesn't grow on trees, so why pay an arm & a leg for rad things, hmm? I don't over overcharge for my items, as overpaying is a total bummer.

Salty embroidery, incorporating vintage, upcycled fabrics + thrifted one-of-a-kind textiles that have seen better days. Subversive, choice words + some traditional flash style design always ready to ship to your door. That'll do.

"Real Swanky" is a term my nan uses that has stuck with me over the years. Quality work, entirely vegan/cruelty-free + darling packaging from Winnipeg, Canada, with love.

Wholesale pricing is a swift option for small shoppes anywhere in the world. Custom orders available upon request, and welcomed!... you deserve somethin' real swanky, yeah?
