Etsy Featured Seller: Shelter

[image by Shelter]

"Shelter is a collective of generalists specializing in all sorts of fun things. My name is Karie, and I make handbags. I was born in late June and like blueberry picking, jumping in clear rivers, and watching sunsets with good buddies. I’m originally from Santa Barbara, CA, but I’ve lived in Washington, D.C., Portland, OR, Brooklyn, NY, Big Sur as well as San Francisco, CA, Warren, VT, and just recently my partner Rob and I moved to Asheville, NC. He’s the coolest, and helps so much with Shelter. He does a lot of the leather work and offers major emotional and design support."
