tortillagirl

Etsy star, TorillaGirl makes everything in her shop by natural daylight, in order to reduce her carbon footprint.  What else?  She uses only cruelty-free, local textiles sourced in France where she lives.  What else?  She makes lovely understated things, from linen tunics to knitted accessories – all with craft and care and attention to detail you can see in the finished products.  See more on her website or buy on Etsy.

cla contemporary

Edinburgh-based clā contemporary makes not all, but mostly ceramic jewelery.  Each piece is hand-crafted by artist Chelsea Adams.  Themes follow simple lines and textures, with subtle colour choices.  She has two Etsy stores, the main clā contemporary shop, plus clā stock, where you can pick up a taste of her style for under £15.  You can also follow her on her blog, where, among other things, I just saw a couple of delicious-looking recipes!

hier apparel

Hier Apparel is one of those Etsy labels that kind of defies all description.  Here is someone truly making what they love, without following trends, and doing a marvelous job.  The aesthetic is… organic sci-fi?  Minimalist artisanal?  Bohemian couture?  I give up…  Go see it for yourself! Based in Chicago, but of course you can buy it online from her Etsy store.  You can also read about her as an Etsy featured seller.

Japanese and proudly eccentric Homoko makes fabric and wooden jewelery in her home in Los Angeles.  Many are made from textile origami, all are bold, beautifully crafted and as cute as a button.  Buy them from her Etsy store.  See more of her aesthetic and inspiration on her Flickr stream.
