Not being of the patient type when I was younger, I want to believe that I have grown into an appreciation for the wisdom of it. Therefore, in that spirit, I felt it was best to wait until a few days ago, to put up a category on my site that shows the products that I design, all a whopping 13 of them. A Priscilla Woolworth Design is the category I am so pleased about, because all the products I offer on it I use and they are really fabulous, honestly. I wouldn’t use anything that wasn’t great, nor would I ever offer it on my site.
Several of these products in fact, I use everyday and even bring with me when I travel, such as the market bags. They really are wonderful and I am so happy with the way they turned out. I designed them to fit my lifestyle and they have performed beyond my expectations. One of them in particular is especially brilliant, though more expensive than the others, due to the costly material, which is made from recycled plastic and somehow made into a soft black mock suede that is so strong that I have carried very heavy things in it and it’s still as good as new, from 3 years now of constant use and many washings.
The other one I use as well every day, because I go to the market daily to buy the freshest produce I can find, are the produce bags. I am anti plastic bags and am so relieved that I have an alternative that is so cool looking, sturdy and useful. When I was in Maine a few summers ago, I bought a whole pile of these vintage feed bags. I really liked the material and writing on it but wasn’t sure what to do with them. Making pillows from them was out of the question, so I just sat on them for a while until I patiently waited for inspiration to strike me. And it did and has over and over again, for other products I make. I am drawn to ways I can reuse materials, keep them out of the huge landfills and create a whole new purpose for them that is very useful. So, be patient with me and you will be rewarded with many new products I have in the works this year, which I honestly can’t wait to use myself.
