Love these leggings. They become softer the more you wear them. This is my second order. They arrived a lot faster this time.

About

Thief&Bandit is a line of unique, hand printed, handmade clothing, accessories and home goods.

I'm a maker, I always have been. I've been creating things since as early as I can remember. I have memories of spending hours stringing seed bead necklaces and drawing from comic books, tie dying with my family and making clothes for my dolls. In high school I made Sonic Youth t shirts and altered thrift store clothes. I went to art school (twice!) and made paintings and then sculpture. After I graduated I learned how to chainsaw carve and then taught myself how to screen print. Screen printing became a bit of an obsession, an easy way to paint but with multiple and unexpected outcomes. Oh and the bright graphic colors! Whoa, what about those misprints? How about shredding them and turning them into jewelry? Painting and sculpture and fashion coming together!

Luckily all my trials as an artist have lead me to Thief&Bandit and Thief&Bandit Kid's and I'm so happy. I'm really grateful, I get to share my art with so many people and they get to dress up themselves and their beautiful kiddos in my designs. I live by the motto 'Thief&Bandit Forever' because it keeps my art alive and allows my business to thrive.
