is Erin, a mad scientist by day and seamstress by night. She’s a graduate student in biochemistry with a background in theatrical costume design. A little too into bright colors for good taste, she admits to having the taste of an overgrown 4-year-old.
is hanna, a little bit grandma, a lil dirty.south, and a whole lotta funky sass. Fond of lichen and mixin-it-up, hanna’s a giant ball of energy and glue, sticking together friends, projects, and community in exciting new ways.
Together, SeamstressErin and granny.tron are KABOOK.L.wear
. We’ve teamed up so we can share inspiration and energy. Our powers combined form something greater than our individual parts [you know, Captain Planet style]. Our crafts are part Erin, part hanna, and totally unique.
noun, plural crafts
1. creation by hand.
Creation takes time and every bit of time is a bit of love and positive energy we pour into the object [yeah, there’s more than a little bit of hippie in both SeamstressErin and granny.tron]. We’ve shared the love with friends, with family, and now we want to share with you. Kind of like a communicable disease, but in this case we’re spreading love and fun.
2. a fun and creative activity.
We love to craft. We’ve been crafting our whole lives. KABOOK.L is an excuse for us to practice the craft of craft, to poke at our creativity. We enjoy learning traditional crafts and spicing them up with our twisted aesthetic.
3. a builder of community.
Craft is something that brings communities together. Community inspires and shapes every stage of the craft - from the gathering of resources, throughout the act of creation, to the purposing of a crafted object.
4. a resource
We believe in reusing, repurposing, and recycling materials. It’s often a source of inspiration to find something at the thrift store and a fun challenge to give it an inspired new life.
