Sesame Seed Designs is your source for beautiful, handmade creations made from reclaimed wool and cashmere fabric.

Mission: I strive to reuse materials that would otherwise be unappreciated. I give new life to reclaimed wool and cashmere sweaters that have holes, outdated styles or are otherwise unwearable. I turn them into stylish, functional items and embellish them with designs inspired by nature.

Products: Available items include hats for babies and toddlers, baby teething toys, hair clips, brooches, coffee cup cozies and more!

Who I Am: I’m Casey and I live in Portland, Oregon with my husband and two young daughters. I am an environmental educator and bring my love of nature to all of my creations. Each item is made by hand by myself and I strive to provide excellent quality and beautiful designs.

Find me on Facebook, Twitter, Etsy, and Pinterest. Subscribe to my newsletter and rss feed.
