I design and sew hats, bags, and accessories from found fibers, vintage fabrics, or hand selected natural fabrics.
Wren Handcraft goods are the natural products of my passion for the practical reuse of raw materials, pattern making, and non-homogeneous individual creations that are unique, interesting, and comfortable.
Why use found fibers? The fabrics in a thrift store are far superior to those in disposable fashion cookie cutter stores. I find heavy Scottish wool tweeds and medium weight Pendleton plaids, 2-ply cashmere, butter soft cotton. Mixed with my personal stash of vintage suiting in wools and silks, I’m able to make one-of-a-kind handcrafted products from materials you can’t find in a fabric store.
I design, test, create, and alter all my own patterns, based on the needs and requests of my clients or my own inspiration. Although I have several styles of hats and bags that are staples, my product list is always growing. If you have something you’ve been looking for, send me an email! I always love a challenge.
On Saturdays in season, you can find me at the Hickory Farmers Market.
