I’m Rebecca, I’m the artist, seamstress, photographer, designer, model, admin, janitor, etc. behind retrofied. Retrofied grew out of a love for vintage fabrics – and a need to do something with an insanely large fabric stash.
All bags and patterns are original retrofied designs. Each design is something I have created to meet a need in my own life and love sharing with others.
Beautifully simple wallets and billfolds.
7 pockets in total – 6 inside for cards/money (this design you will have to fold your bill and put it into one of the pocket for card)and one zipper pocket in the back for your coin and small goodies. the wallet is close using a small magnetic snap closure. I also included a kawaii detachable bell/pendant
florspace is about everything adorable, quirky, unique, indie, classic & most of all, functional.
We believe in sharing the love for quality handmade goods like it always should have been. We don’t sell stuff we won’t already love so you get the good stuff everytime! We often take our sample designs to the streets, use them to bits to see if we love them enough to share them! No basement sweatshops and mass production here…
For anyone who wants to know, florspace is never my hobby, its my full time job. I live and breathe what I do and absolutely love it. ;+) Woo-hoo!
RARAMODO bags is a little studio designing bags for women valuing the originality and wanting to express it through the style of clothes. For women who are avoiding mass-produced objects.
All bags were created according to the original RARAMODO project. Every bag is being sewn here, in the RARAMODO studio, with special attention to the high quality of the workmanship and the detail.
You will find here the unique style and design. Bags are being sewn in limited series, designed in order to combine the attractive appearance and the functionality.
Michelle Obama and her youngest daughter Sacha enjoyed a European Vacation in Spain recently. I thought perhaps you might like to take a virtual trip to the land of las pampas and Paso Doble, the Reino de Espana. This first item is the perfect travel tote, whether you’re roaming the streets of Barcelona, or jet-setting in Marbella, which is where the bag’s designer, Martina Masini, resides.
Crochet is definitely one of those arts that can veer into the not-hip-at-all category of the world of handmade. A toilet paper roll cover made to look like a skirt with a plastic doll on top comes to mind. This is not the case with this cool brooch by Paz of Monicacaros.
I am a collector of brooches, old and new, and this one would be a very nice addition. Monicacaros is a made-up name, but the shop has some very real treasures—including a mouse named Roberto (he is Spanish after all).
My daughter is an animal lover, and horses are at the very top of the list. She gets that from her mom. I am terribly allergic to anything with fur, but I still ride horses whenever I get the chance. Thus, anything with a horse on it always gets my attention. I found this drawing by Olga Gal especially captivating. The colors are so simple but the composition is quite beautiful.
I am certain Michelle Obama and Sasha did some shopping, with Secret Service detail in tow, of course. Maybe if they had brought something back from their trip for the conservative media, they wouldn’t have been given such a hard time for stepping foot outside of the United States. How about one of these cute, handmade, plushies by Vega Lyrae? Seems like a good gift for the childish media personalities raising a ruckus. Seriously, Spain did win the World Cup–for goodness sake, shouldn’t someone congratulate them in person?
