Well hello there, My New Bag.
Diane Hoffman is an artist, designer and teacher. She makes one-of-a-kind loom-knitted bags, pillows and other textiles. Need we point out that her work is gorgeous and we are super excited to have her at The Flea? Of course not.
Diane tells us:
"I appreciate rescuing, recycling and reuse in all things. I use vintage and old linens to make the flaps of my handmade messenger bags. I use mill end-yarns and upcycled leather belts for my knitted items. I upcycle used t-shirts to print my line of rescued animals."
The goat on the shirt above is Alice from Saunderstown. (Awesome, right?) Diane also has some great pitbull, backyard chicken, and cat tees, too.
Check out Diane's funky, local, handmade work at The Flea this weekend. Buy Local!
