Amber Arambul creates individually hand-made leather bags that are simple and unique. Self-taught, Amber has been perfecting her craft since 2012.
Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, escaping to a warmer climate mid-winter has found it’s way in as a priority. It was during one of these escapes that Amber was inspired to create ARA - simple, beautiful, unbranded handbags, perfect for travel and everyday.
Amber takes pride in each piece and all of their elements, from choosing the leather to braiding the handles. New designs come from new desires and the continuation to refine and perfect is ongoing.

A champion of the slow fashion movement, Megan Huntz is passionate about conscious, well-crafted design. Her entire collection is created and manufactured in her hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. Working with all natural fibers, she uses her background in industrial design to explore fashion with a multi-disciplinary approach, always grounded in the philosophy that form follows function.
Megan began her career in the Italian fashion industry after studying at Domus Academy. Known for her enrichment of fabrics, like hand-dyeing and digital prints, she blurs the lines of fine art and fashion. She also creates limited edition runs with vintage dead-stock fabrics and large quantities of remnants, which play an important part in her point of view on sustainability: taking something that would otherwise be wasted and turning it into something beautiful, coveted, and perhaps most importantly, indisposable. Since returning from Italy to her Southern roots in 2010, Megan has focused on designing collections that are deeply connected to a contemporary yet timeless sense of style.
Minoux is expressive minimalist jewelry melding a love of style with a commitment to conscious “slow fashion”. In our Portland, Oregon, studio, we create meaningful and refined pieces that you know you look great wearing and that are made by happy hands.
Details are important, and we take great care at every stage of making your jewelry, from concept and design, to execution and final aesthetic.

TEXTILEHAUS founder Anastasiya Yatsuk grew up in Russia where she was allowed to shop for new clothes twice a year (Winter and Summer).

Each TEXTILEHAUS garment embodies the same qualities that Anastasiya learned to value growing up, including timeless style and superior workmanship.
Our textiles are responsibly produced in Japan and selected for their exceptionally soft touch. Each item is designed and produced in our Cincinnati based studio by one person from start to finish.

As such, Tiro Tiro embraces an era of experimentation and improvisation, drawing from our years of practice and honed expertise and then making things up as we go. Evolving and exploring new mediums and techniques, we allow the material to guide us, finding that some of our best work happens by accident. In addition to jewelry, we look forward to offering limited runs of small sculptural works and complementary wares.
