About Me

It must be my English/Scottish blood that gives me my love of wool fabrics. But I decided that my growing collection needed to start earning its keep.

I knew I wanted to make something functional but also something a bit different. The subtle colors, patterns and textures of wool lean towards quiet sophistication but they can be a bit fun, too. And so my wool totes came to be; they are a classic material used in a new way and give a utility item an updated look.

I design and construct each bag myself in a large sunny studio in western Massachusetts. My husband and I live in a house he designed and built and are accompanied everywhere we go by Zoe, a black lab mix. By the way, she is the best dog in the whole wide world!  ;)
