January Artist of the Month: Mugwump
This month we’re pleased to feature the work of our long-time vendor Mugwump!
Mugwump is an independent design troupe using reclaimed materials to create fashion accessories for the modern world. Based in Portland, Oregon Mugwump utilizes all variety of recycled goods, from retro records & cast away vinyl banners to lost maps and your favorite childhood books. Making use of these re-purposed materials, and an industrial sewing machine, Mugwump creates handbags, clutches, passport covers, wallets and much more.
Since 2001 this female owned and operated, micro-business has sold her products at stores across the country. Sole designer, Suzanne Keolker, learned from her mother early on that nothing should be wasted, and to this day that remains the inspiration behind Mugwump – ‘a clever endeavor in accessories’.
