Cara DesJardins - Sterling MA
Rhode Islande native Cara DesJardins’ early exposure to sewing and textile design is the seed that sprouted into a unique line of stylish bags, totes and clutches. Each piece is handmade in Cara’s studio and creative living space located in Providence, which has been in her family for four generations. Her great grandparents were the original owners of the tall-ceilinged, mahogany-lined colonial, and her great-grandmother Georgianna, a milliner, established the ‘middle’ room as her sewing space many years ago. Filled with bobbins, bolts and thimbles, this is where she taught her four daughters to sew, one being Cara’s grandmother. Cara is now carrying on the family tradition and building on the rich history whose origins can be traced through many generations.
