March 16, 2018

Anna Graham has her hands in a lot of sewing goodness these days and if you’re a Making magazine reader you may be familiar with her work, from petal pouches and totes, to wallets and her newest amazing project in COLOR, the Making Backpack. Anna’s ambition and passion is evident as she tells her makers journey, one I’m sure many of you will be able to relate to. We’re so inspired by her approach to making and hope you will be to. You can find Anna at noodle-head.com and on Instagram @noodlehead531.

No. 3 / COLOR
Re-envisioning the fiber landscape with Jared Flood

March 1, 2018

Sometimes we forget that those behind some of the biggest names and companies in the industry are just that; people with a vision, makers with a mission and entrepreneurs with a passion and will so strong. Jared Flood is the force behind one of our favorite companies, Brooklyn Tweed. What started out as an idea, quickly grew into something much greater than even he anticipated. Backed by an incredible team and american wool, he’s paved much of the way for modern domestic yarn production and quality knitwear design. It was a pleasure to get to sit down and hear his story, and I hope you enjoy listening in. You can find Jared at brooklyntweed.com and on Instagram @brooklyntweed and @jared_flood

No. 2 / COLOR – Connecting with Mexico through handcrafted beauty, with Collectivo

February 15, 2018

Collectivo began as an idea in 2016 and was founded by Vail Fletcher, a professor of gender and environmental studies with a fascination for the handmade, Jessica Helgerson, an interior designer with a deep affection for Mexico, and Cristina Niculescu, a travel-loving Spanish professor. Collectivo collects beautiful handmade goods straight from the source, with these three women traveling to remote indigenous villages to meet the makers and learn about the age-old traditions behind each craft and document the hours, weeks or even months that go into making a single piece. Each region has its natural materials, each village its speciality, and each family its own take on tradition. Their mission is to share with you their love for Mexico through the artistry and stories they collect along the way and Collectivo brings you these treasures and the stories behind them. You can find Collectivo at ourcollectivo.com and on Instagram @ourcollectivo
