Each of my coats is hand made expressly for you. You choose the design, color, and hand-painted surface style that you want. You can also choose how warm you want it with an inner core of polar fleece or faux fur on one side. And yes, if super warmth is your goal, you can have both (that's what I wear in the winter).
I will work closely with you at every step to make sure you get the coat of your dreams.
Every coat takes 3 weeks to make. My busiest time is fall and winter and there is a waiting list during that time that can be as long as 4 months. After you place your order, I will give you an approximate delivery date and keep you posted on progress. On request, I can send you swatches of fabric and paint styles. Don't see a paint design that you fancy? Not all my paint designs are shown here (not enough room!) and I'm usually working on something new, so get in touch and I'll send you my newest.
Why Boo and Grace?….My Mom taught me to sew at the age of
eight but, more importantly, she gave me her creative DNA. Creativity has sustained and driven me in every corner of my life and in
very surprising ways. I wanted to honour her in a low key way.
Boo was my Mom’s best teenage friend at the cottage where she spent her summers. To this day, no one knows why she was called Boo. Boo never called Mom by her given name, but always called her Grace. And we don’t know the why of that either. And so I chose Boo and Grace as the slightly odd nod to my mother. I took the first photos of my coats at the dock where they played and swam.
