Hey Friends, today I have decided to share my blog with a very talented local artist that just recently decided to venture into Etsy world. I am super excited as the world will now be able to see and buy her wonderful creations. This talented designer is Toronto's own Karen Carrillo. She crafts under the name KooCoo and she is one of five fierce women to run Freedom Clothing Collective Freedom Clothing Collective on Bloor Street West in Toronto.
Karen works with scrap fabrics (material left over from dresses, skirts, couches, curtains, pillows …) and makes these wonderful little wallets to fit even the smallest of purses. The outside materials of most wallets are taken from last year’s fabric upholstery sample books that are no longer in print or circulation.
On occasion she also teams up with her mom and together they design fabulous wall pieces that would make a perfect addition to any home or cottage.
I have included only a small sample of her work, so please visit her Etsy store and give her thumbs up (hearts) for work well done.
Congrats Karen. I love sharing Etsy space with you.
