Janet McKinstry designs one of a kind creations using the finest textured and colorful upholstery and unique findings.
“Living in the beautiful Berkshires of Massachusetts gives me lots of inspiration as an artist and handbag designer. I love to get up early in the morning when the house is quiet, meditate a bit, and then pick up something from my overstuffed studio shelves that speaks to me and begin to create.
Most of my materials are remnants from local upholsterers and designers matched with unique findings and materials from my travels. Recently I found amazing rugs and jeweled closures from Israel which I intend to work into my latest collection.”
