Welcome!

Welcome to Studio23 Art! Here you’ll find unique bags, purses and accessories created with 100% upcycled fabric. That means I never buy brand new fabric – instead I salvage and recycle material from clothing, curtains, upholstery samples and whatever I can get my hands on. Each bag is inspired by the scrap at hand and sometimes I don’t know exactly what I’m making till it’s done. Since my supply of any single fabric is limited and I don’t use patterns (except ones I make myself), your bag will be one of a kind!

Thanks for visiting!

I salvage, I cut, I create! Garage sales are one of my favorite resources for fabric… someone’s unwanted, outdated (but amazing lime green) leather jacket is perfect for what I do.
