Heather Frazier’s hands are rarely idle. “I am a person who has to always be making things and following creative impulses,” she says. We’ve been admiring Heather’s work for years, first as the proprietor of Heather, a San Francisco clothing boutique that supplied many a Remodelista favorite uniform, and then as the owner of Frazier + Wing, a micro-scale fashion line that she designed, cut, and sewed herself.
More recently, Heather has been living in Portland, Oregon, spending pandemic downtime crocheting brightly striped, multi-purpose sacks she calls “treasure bags.” She’s also returned to making the paper banners that once decorated her shop—and that we spotlighted back in 2008 and 2009. The cutout elements from these led to a just-launched new Frazier + Wing line: Heather’s modern mobiles and wall hangings of playfully bold, dingbat-like wooden shapes that are intended for all ages. Count us among the mesmerized.

“These new pieces are made of walnut sourced in the US and milled in a family-run business in Wisconsin, ” she writes. “I make, pack, and ship each mobile myself with great care and attention to detail.”
