ethnographi started out as most ideas do: huge, magnificent, and all-consuming. After the initial explosion, it condensed into a business of bliss centering around my love of words and items with a story, a past, a history. ethnographi is about salvaging items no longer loved, dusting them off, and turning into something beautiful. It is about repurposing common items into something new, giving vintage items a new lease on life, and crafting something entirely new out of clay, metal, salvaged items and fibers. In essence, ethnographi is my story and I invite you to turn the pages and enjoy them, savor them. Get to know them, let them inspire you. And above all, let them prompt you to share your stories with me.
