About machinemachineHAWAII

On Etsy since 2007

Oh the joy of making things with your own two hands!

Even mono-lingual people speak many languages, just not so verbal. Clothing is the language of our bodies....saying things in ways which our simple little mouths cannot. It's good to spread notes of splendor + bliss + creativity + love + beauty throughout the planet----but Im not gonna be so vocal as to shout it on a street corner or even whisper it to dear friends. No, I'd prefer to just wear something homespun and full of slight whimsy to subtly infiltrate doomgloom mundanity. I'm akin to the idea of making/wearing one of a kind things as a method for liberating oneself from the machineries which tend to dominate independent thought. Also it's just really fun to make things!

You can find most of my items in my primary webshop::

    Owner, Designer, Maker

    I've been making clothing for about 15 years and began this little company (although I prefer to think of it as a project/experiment) called MachineMachine Apparel in 2007. I live on Kauai, which informs my line's pacific-specific style.

welcome to my etsy shop/experiment...explore!

Some general shop/product info:
-All items are made by my hands.
-Garments are serged for durability and strength as well as nice finished seams.
-I enjoy experimentation and vintage fabrics so more often than not items utilize one of a kind style and material.
-My prices are determined by the fabric used, the time spent, and the creative juices poured into the designs.
-machine machine is a small independent clothing line...but i enjoy meeting other designers, artists and shop owners (who might be interested in carrying my items in their real-life stores...please contact me if youre interested.)
