Hats, mittens, scarves, belts, socks, change purses, cosmetic bags: these are things we can call haberdashery, commonly used for men’s accessories but now encompassing women’s as well. I handcraft these one-of-a-kind items with long-lasting use in mind. Mostly for women, but I’ll be fashioning the odd thing for men, too.
