Textile Tinkerer

“Everything is created by hand—whether it’s fabric being manipulated through hand dying or block printing, leather being stitched, rivets being hammered or wool that’s being crocheted or knit.”

Nicole is a designer driven by curiosity. She’s tinkered in many forms of making, specifically with textiles. And her line of bohemian, feminine bags showcases her myriad skills, from crocheting to leatherwork to hand-stamping fabric to sewing. Each of her unique pieces is built entirely by hand using either vintage or rare materials. See, for her it’s all about owning or gifting things that are completely one of a kind, that have a personality entirely their own. We’re glad she decided not to decide.
