Indigo hand dyed vintage linens embroidered with a sweet moon face. Additional appliquéd patches of my favorite remnants, from Liberty of London to vintage Japanese cottons, or over-dyed hand silk-screened fabric (most of them feature my favorite screen printer Sara Parker out of Athens, Georgia) No two faces are alike, each has their own expression and mood.
Lined with natural light-weight canvas, metal zipper with recycled leather pulls. Bio: For the last 25 years, Karen has been a freelance CAD instructor, training textile and fashion designers to create knits, prints and wovens for the garment industry. But these days you are more likely to find her in her creatively cluttered studio than on her computer, adding one more vintage patch to a favorite pair of jeans or double gauze shirt.
Her love of visible mending, natural fibers, hand dyed fabrics and slow stitching has recently turned into a small side business, creating one of a kind stitched curiosities. Karen lives in rural Northwest CT with her family, a menagerie of pets wearing party hats, and an indigo dipped laundry line. “You repair the thing until you make it completely.” - Louise Bourgeois We're very honoured that Karen has started an indigo dye bath to dye and make her beautiful stitched pouches for us at Loop.
