I'm a coast-loving Australian living in the mountains of Northern California. As the owner, designer and maker of Made Wherever I Am, I bring a casual coastal style to a wild west classic, creating unique bandana-style cowl scarves using natural fibers. With just the right amount of fabric for a cozy neck and torso, my scarves are easy to wear, giving an effortless style with a cheerful pop of colour.
Each scarf is knit by me on a small knitting machine and hand seamed. I then use a long needle to weave in the colourful designs.
Growing up with textiles in my genes going back at least five generations - my mother is a textile artist and my grandfather worked in what he called "the rag trade", his grandfather was a silk merchant, and his father before him a draper - from my teenage years photography was my creative path. I still practise photography everyday, but sometimes you can't fight what's in your genes.
With a life long love of putting colours together, finding joy in the conversation that goes on between colours, the unique knitting and weaving combination that is Made Where Wherever I Am feels like something I was born to do.
