CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES
"My goal with Maker & Mineral is to produce sustainable, hand-crafted, and well-crafted home wears, accessories, and clothing for the modern person who wants to buck fast fashion and temporary trends.
How I do it:
- I strive to use recycled materials from creative reuse centers or from my own home whenever possible, which helps make the pieces entirely unique
- I shop local (aka I try to source my materials from the San Francisco/ Bay Area or California on the whole)
- I use remnant or deadstock fabrics
- And most importantly I pattern, print, design, sew, stitch, and more generally MAKE all of the products myself here in San Francisco.
I also seek to evoke ideas of nature within all of my work. Using abstracted rock, floral, vegetable motifs, I want to hopefully remind people of our own small connections with natural world and push for sustainability."
