We discovered the work of Heidi Leugers of Reclaimed Wool via Portland, Oregon’s Alder & Co., one of our favorite shops anywhere. Her kitchen accessories made from assorted end-bolt and discontinued fabrics from a “famous Pacific Northwest mill” manage to look fresh and vintage at the same time. Perfect for cabin life.
