This year I have decided each month I will purchase from another small/handmade business to show them support and to share their amazing business with you.
I’m a little behind on posting about January’s purchase…but it is well worth the wait, I promise!
I have been following BASK for several years now and have loved everything Kayleigh has made. I would just sit and watch her beautiful pieces fill my feed and think “Oh I need to buy that”. I never followed thru until last month when I decided to finally pull the trigger and the Kiera kimono became mine, now I’m slightly addicted and want more!
I asked Kayleigh for a little biography on herself and business, BASK. Here is what she had to say:
“I live in North Idaho with my two little ladies and my husband. I started BASK with just jewelry and I had NEVER sewn in my life. I have always loved creating but something about sewing seemed to daunting. My grandma got me a sewing machine and it sat on my dining room table for over a month. Finally one day I decided to try and make a kimono. It wasn’t great but I was happy with wearing it. I threw it on FB and got a huge response. Now I am here, which is INSANE. I feel like the luckiest person alive honestly. I love searching for the perfect fabric or the perfect pieces to add to my jewelry. I just LOVE that I get to do this.”
The Kiera is a beautiful piece and perfect for any season. Dress it up or throw it over your favorite t-shirt, either way your friends will go buy one after they see yours, just ask my friend Katie. 😉
Here are a few that I have my eye on…and you should too.
These two kimonos are two of my favorites and are at the top of my list for my next purchase. Kayleigh hand dyed these pieces making each one unique and one of a kind. Pandora and Burn are sure to be at the top of your wish list too.
Kayleigh’s pieces beat any boutique’s mass produced kimonos. From florals and lace to hand dyed and animal print, BASK is sure to have something you can’t live without. The love that goes into each one from picking out the fabric to sewing them up is evident when you open your package. You’re supporting a wife, mother, and a maker that is creating pieces that you are sure to feel beautiful in.
So follow her on Facebook, Instagram or just go shop.
If you have checked out her shop, which kimono is your favorite?
February’s purchase has been made and worn already…stay tuned for another fun shop.
