Swift shipping, thoughtfully presented purchase, and great customer service. (Carol was patient and professional in answering my questions.) The best part, of course, is the lovely purse itself! I ordinarily don't wear yellow, but this will be the perfect accent to so many outfits. Highly recommended shop.

About

I do what I love...

I made my first bag as a child. The bag was very simply formed using a square loom. I can still picture my fingers pulling the cotton string over and under to create the texture of the fabric. The imperfection of the edges gave the bag so much character. The spirit with which I approached my first piece is still embedded in my work today as I create functional designs using simple forms and subtle textures.

I choose materials drawn from the natural world and alter them with random folds, pleats and seam-lines, taking inspiration from the shapes I see around me. Linen and wool are textiles I often use due to their beauty and versatility. In everything I do, the texture and form of the original material is allowed to shape the essence of the work. When I alter the component materials, the goal is to enhance a particular aspect of the textile and allow it to be seen in a new way.

    yorktown road product is produced in my small workshop. I hand-dye the fabrics, draft every pattern, construct each piece and document the process with abstract and partial images. I thoroughly enjoy this work that I do. Carol Gilbert

I enjoy using linen, which by nature, wrinkles, contains slubs and has slight color variations. The colored linen is hand-dyed using fiber-reactive dyes. The colors may contain some color mottling and color variations which is a result of the hand-worked process. I also use many repurposed woolens and leathers which may contain character marks from their former existence. None of these marks, texture variations or color variations should be considered flaws.
