Holly Stalder's designs begin with her favored raw materials: salvaged antique fabrics and trims. Intrigued by the fragility of fabrics and how they age and wear over time, she incorporates these elements into her modern designs. Either one of a kind of limited run, the line is produced in Portland, Oregon.
