Over the past several months, I have been working with Wilson & Willy's, a general store focused on thoughtfully made products for men, women, and the home. The webshop launched before the holidays, and the brick and mortar location will be opening in Minneapolis next week. Wilson & Willy's believes in the makers. Everything in the shop is made in the USA, and a great deal of it is made right here in Minnesota.
It has been a true pleasure to spend time in the local studios of these makers, documenting their processes. I am consistently inspired by their creative wisdom, their slow intention, their quiet humility.
Lisa Hackwith has an art background, and taught herself to sew after graduating. She designs and constructs the clothing, along with her small team, in her Minneapolis studio. They aim for quality, for timelessness, for creating the pieces that will be the highlight of your closet. All of the items for Wilson & Willy's are made from selvage material from Faribault Woolen Mill, resulting in a collection of pieces crafted locally, from beginning to end.
I look forward to sharing more of my work with Wilson & Willy's, and with these makers. There is so much good.
