I am so excited to be sharing a variety of makers in the coming weeks. My hope is to inspire you to shop handmade this holiday season! 1. Melanie Biehle is an artist and designer based in Seattle. She’s inspired by the energy of cities, the adventure of travel, the meditative qualities of oceans and lakes, and the mood boards in her mind based on 60s rom-coms, mid-century modern textiles, and California surf culture.
