Hende



Hende of Traverse City MI
::::::::::

I grew up Making things--both of my parents are artists and my father is a carpenter as well. I fell in love with the fine arts at the tenderest age and have always had my hands in all of them, though most of all, in poetry. My concerns as a writer (as also a designer) are to bring a little beauty into this world. I've also spent a lot of time as a community activist and organizer, and even more than making beautiful things, I want to defend and preserve what remains of beauty in the world around us--trees, clean water, justice, the dark night sky, quiet places, human dignity, topsoil.

Hende is one of the ways I spend my time and it is motivated by an insatiable desire to create. I believe in good design, quality craft and materials that tread lightly on this earth. I enjoy making one-of-a-kinds and small batches of thoughtfully brewed garments for those who are tired of mass-market, disposable fashion.

  1. Yay! I love Hende...I've been wanting to buy something from her shop for so long now. Hopefully soon, her stuff is too beautiful to pass up, I think about her shirts all the time!

  2. Wonderful pick, I've really been into her work too - planning to pick up one of those cute pinafores for myself.

  3. Your embrace of the beauty that is floating and splashing about here in the heart of things is such a lovely idea. Thanks for including Hende.
