about me.

CLAIRE O'BRIEN

sole maker/human behind Cloud Rabbit Designs

based in Perth East, Ontario, Canada

Facts: I work a full-time day job that I'm very happy at.

Sewing has always been an interest of mine. Growing up, I dabbled in garment-making (without ever referencing an actual pattern). Now, I've made it my primary hobby/passion project.

I focused on bags and accessories as I found them to be an easier product to sell without a ton of customization. I create every one of my products from scratch with my own two hands, my own designs, with utmost care - and a mind in the clouds.

 

My vision has always been to sew unique, quality products that are practical, affordable, beautiful and vegan friendly using my favourite designer fabrics, cork/faux leathers and canvas. I have focused on making a handful of simple designs that have evolved through my own creative evolution and valued customer feedback.

My "studio" is a small room in our basement. I have no conventional training - I've learned everything I know through YouTube videos, photos and advice from other makers and a LOT of trial and error. Nothing about this venture has been quick or easy or cheap - far from it - but it's the most rewarding thing I've ever done. I'm learning so much every day and I'm filled with ideas and ambition for what's yet to come. While I may be a small operation, I work hard and with LOTS of love for what I do.

Thank you for visiting my website and for taking the time to get to know me and my little handmade business. Your support means a lot and every purchase, big or small, helps to fuel this journey!
