Thanks for your interest in my work! I'm a textile artist based in Oakland, CA
where all of my Vintage & Woven pieces are designed, cut, and sewn, one piece at a time. Using ethically sourced textiles (mostly vintage) from all over West Africa, each piece is designed to minimize waste and honor the life of these beautiful, storied fabrics.
The Backyard Collection is made up of hand dyed organic cotton essentials. We have everything cut and sewn here in California. Each piece is dyed by hand in our backyard studio.
Every element from the temperature that day, to the way the wind is blowing, affects they way these pieces come out. It's a truly magical and collaborative process.
I began dyeing as a way to personalize clothing for my babies. Eventually my friends and family wanted hand dyed pieces too. Now, I am happy to be offering them to you!
