Artist: Kelsey Brown
Kelsey Brown was born and raised in Kentucky, where she learned to sew and quilt with her mom. While attending Warren Wilson College in Asheville, NC, she discovered weaving and became fascinated by the stories of items we own, use, and consume. Kelsey learned how to spin, felt, tan leather, and create her own natural dyes because she likes to know the origin of her materials and how they are made. Recycled or reclaimed materials often show up in her weaving. Kelsey's most recent educational journey took her to Guatemala to work with traditional backstrap weavers and shoemakers using handwoven fabrics.
Kelsey hand dyed the fabric, and the embroidered portion of the bag is made from cassette tape ribbon. You can use this decorative and sturdy pouch for just about anything- makes a great evening purse or travel bag! is also the perfect size to tote your art brushes and a journal.
