With Small Business Saturday being tomorrow I thought it would be great to highlight a couple of my favorite makers.
Check out their amazing unique American made products and support small businesses!
Forestbound is a bag company that creates their unique line of totes and carryalls out of salvages textiles. Many hours are spent scouring the Northeast for storied textiles to create their original bags with a piece of history. Time is dedicated to thoughtfully and carefully reworking these materials to create beautiful timeless pieces.
Justine is a fiber artist from Long Island, NY who creates a lot of her beautiful and unique pieces by nuno felting. The technique takes a loose fiber like wool and bonds it to a sheer fabric such a silk gauze. Often the process incorporates several layers of fibers to build up on texture and color to create unique designs.
You can find Justine's gorgeous wall hangings and scarves on her Etsy and visit her site to follow her processes and creations.
