--jared desimio--

I am a Maine-based maker of bags and accessories that are steeped in history. Using vintage, antique, salvaged and upcycled materials, I create functional accessories that live on to tell the next story and create the next memory.

My aesthetic is rooted in a DIY attitude. Yankee ingenuity, self-sufficiency, and resourcefulness are what inform my decisions as a maker. My designs are ruggedly imperfect, much like myself and my beautiful home state, yet they are guaranteed for life.

When not sourcing materials or teaching myself how to become a better designer, maker and artist, you'll find me working in special education in a Maine high school or at home with my wife and young daughter.
