Working with yarn and fabric satisfies something in me that I can’t really pinpoint. Perhaps it’s the knowledge that I’ve taken something flat and shapeless and given it form. Perhaps it is simply the comfort of wearing something that was made especially for me.
One thing I know for sure: I don’t have a lot of patience with mass-produced clothing and home goods, for both ethical and aesthetic reasons. And I know I’m not alone. In fact, I’m guessing that you’re here because you agree with me, yes? Good. Let’s talk.
Two years ago, I was asked to design and sew sturdy, breathable aprons for a friend who owns a few restaurants. In the process, I learned that many commercial-grade supplies have rapidly decreased in quality and the good stuff becoming increasingly impossible to find.
That’s where Tall Pines comes in. My main focus at the moment is to provide high-quality and REPAIRABLE goods to my clients (commercial or not). I’m determined to do my part to change the conversation on mass-produced “stuff” and encourage people to think more carefully about the tools and objects they use, day-to-day.
So, if you have an idea for a product or if you require something particular to your needs, please drop me a line. I want to hear about what you do and what you need. And I’m up for a challenge.
