About the Maker: Jackie Reno started working with braided salvaged cotton as a means to have a creative outlet. In her day job working with children and families, results aren’t always so tangible and obvious, so turning to it was satisfying and therapeutic to have tangible results with crafting. Her study of textiles and the history of fibers have taught her much about humanity, about teaching her children, and connecting them to the past. Jackie uses repurposed materials, like leather salvaged from ripped leather couches, and mudcloth from her favorite flea market where the vendor has fabric from decades ago from all over the world. With the amount of materials already existing and ready to use in her home, yard, and neighborhood, the maker is constantly challenging herself to use materials that she knows the story of, as much as possible. Low-impact on the earth and body, functionality and aesthetics are the goals while she experiments with natural dyes, fibers and reused fabrics.
