Announcement    Katherine Rasmussen received her Masters degree in Communication Design from the
Pratt Institute in New York. She later polished her sewing and tailoring skills at the
Fashion Institute of Technology. Eventually, graphics and sewing collided and in 2005
when she founded Reiter8 (re-it-er-ate), which offers an expanded collection of recycled
sail totes, bags and pillows through her website: www.reiter8.com and retailers
nationwide.
Concern for the environment lead her to focus on creating products that reused
materials in an unexpected way. Sailboat sails as a material resource came to her
attention when she was vacationing on the Maine coast. Reiter8’s goal is to offer
products that have low environmental impact without compromising style.
Simple, clean, bold graphics and recycled sailboat sails are united to create handmade
products that are one-of-a-kind and kind to the environment. Reiter8 bags are modern,
sporty, fun, functional, eye catching and extremely durable.
“Working with recycled sails is exhilarating. Each sail has a different ‘hand’ - texture,
density, and crispness – a testament to its history. I have yet to come across two sails
that are exactly alike which that keeps my work fresh and Reiter8 products truly
unique.”
Katherine lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
