I had my first commission last month. A custom scarf requested in the softest inky Shi Bui Silk Mohair you could ever imagine.
I started the weaving on our long drive to NYC, it was to eventually make it’s way to Alberta. It’s safe to say, this is a well travelled piece.
I wanted to post pictures as soon as it was completed but had to wait until it’s recipient got her package in the post. That only seemed fair, especially as I had added a little surprise!
A hand stitched embroidered linen tag with her initials T.H.
“It’s perfect. And divine! Oh my god. Oh wow I was like look at the monogram!
I look like a bag right now but it’s making me look like a million!
Thank you so much! Please make a thousand an apply to the next one of a kind.”
FYI, It’s not easy to come up with a stylish and light way to package textiles for air mail.
This handmade glassine envelope with a Hinterlands Tag and the brightest Cornflower Blue Rubber Band was just the thing. Dale creates the most beautiful artwork and gets the vision I have every-time.
Don’t let the glossy website throw you, in addition to his motion graphics work, he’s quite the genius when it comes to logos, type and appreciating handcrafts.
I am blessed to have both him and all the use of his in house services, ha.
Drop him a line if you are looking for a logo or some packaging ideas as well.
