French Market Bag
"Southern style to me embraces the languid geography of where we live- enveloped by water below, beside and around us. Southern style is as mysterious and winsome as the bayous and eddys of the Mississippi River- calm, murky or churning.It nods to history and looks forward. It is hopeful.
I am a native of the deep south, with an aesthetic and experience that is true Southern Gothic. My childhood was spent playing on the decaying grounds of Rowan Oak (Faulkner's home)amidst rusty farm equipment and filbert trees that curled back against the sun.
To get my childhood you mix :
3 parts rust, 2 parts torn lace, a jigger of bourbon,& a splash of absinthe. Serve with a family secret (or two) & you have bayousalvage style.
History of Bayou Salvage as an artist/designer:
BayouSalvage is the home of the original skeleton key and lace debris accessories- cuffs,chokers,collars and purses. In 2008 we expanded to include custom made vintage inspired clothing made from recycled vintage lace and organic, made in the USA textiles made in ALL SIZES"
