I am so excited to be selected to present my textile and handbag collection, Manu, at the SoWa Open Market. We will have a display every-other Sunday from September 2nd – October 28th.

Here are a few pictures of our display this past Sunday. I introduced Manu, my collection of handbags, belts and scarfs. I’ve been scouring vintage markets and antique shops for fabrics and components for years, and am really pleased with how they have come together with my own contemporary accessories in this new line. I have also developed custom-dyed fabrics, including silk, wool and organic cotton, which are then manipulated through traditional and contemporary techniques such as knitting, stitching, nuno felting, batik, crochet, embroidery, quilting and collage.

The resulting fashion accessories are a playful juxtaposition of contemporary and vintage textiles inspired by the mix of color and ornament in indigenous folk art and the rough and weathered look of things well-worn and well-loved.

The SoWa Open Market is held Sundays, 10 a.m.–4 p.m., at 460 Harrison Avenue, in one of Boston’s hippest neighborhoods, The South End, which is touted as the best outdoor shopping in Boston!
