new week, new shop - krecklo

Happy Monday! In order to help you ease into another week, I want to introduce you to krecklo, a fun and creative shop that features purses, bags, and accessories made from mainly second hand fibers. I always ask those who I feature in this series to describe their style in 3 or 4 words. Jessica, the owner of krecklo, had the perfect answer - "plain Jane with flair." Her designs are simple, but made special with her interesting selection of fabrics. It was her line of Poppy Pouches that first drew me to her shop, made from denim, courdouroy, and houndstooth.

Jessics does her sewing in Toronto, which she has called home for the last eight years. She shares a place with two crafty roommates who were more than happy to convert their living room into a craft room! It's a lovely little room to create in, complete with a skylight and small balcony letting in plenty of natural light.

While I first fell in love with Jessica's Poppy Pouches, she has plenty of other designs that are equally great. If you are looking for a wristlet, make up bag, or full size purse I highly suggest you take a peak at krecklo. You'll be doing yourself (and the environment!) a big favor!

Please be sure to take a moment and leave Jessica a comment if you're a fan of her work! I'm sure she would love to read each and every one.
