Function as Form

Based in Maine, Jared domestically sources everything that is not salvaged, from the thread that stitches the fabric together to the rivets that hold everything in place. Jared will also utilize materials provided by customers to create customized products that honor the personal memories and storylines of the past. Jared is most inspired by the materials he uses for his totes, belts and accessories. Whether it’s a canvas mailbag, a life jacket, grain sack or military duffle bag, Jared finds the stories within the materials and uses them to create a new story for his customer to complete. The result is function as form.
