Nancy Newman | Leaskdale
Women’s work - sewing, designing patterns and textile prints, weaving, dyeing - this has been my life. Previously, I ran my own children’s clothing company, selling wholesale, and through my own store on the Danforth. My interest in vintage textiles led to a degree from Sheridan College of Art and Design's Textile Studio. Over the following next decade, I devoted my tactile passions towards work in weaving studio.
ALL PRODUCTS BY Nancy Newman
From my studio in Uxbridge Ontario, I now create bags from vintage and handmade textiles from around the world. There are artists the world over who daily create beautiful, functional textiles. They put their heart and soul, as well as skill, from their years of practice, into these traditionally crafted fabric pieces. Nothing is mass produced or industrially made.
I am committed to honouring the work of these artists by transforming their fabrics into bags that are beautiful, useful and durable. No two are alike, and each is a functional work of art, respecting past cultures, textile traditions and the importance of ‘women’s work’ in our everyday lives, carrying the patina and character of their past with them.
Each Nancy Newman Textiles piece is an extraordinary product, expertly handcrafted and absolutely unique, made just for you.
