BuBo Handmade

Kristen Faircloth

I have always had a love for handbags. I love scouring antique shops and junk stores for vintage pieces and dissect their construction. While pursuing my undergraduate degree in Literature, I would often find myself putting off my reading and writing papers to sit at my sewing machine to make small bags and wallets for friends and family (or just for myself!). Later, I found out about the Accessory Design program at the Savannah College of Art and Design in my home state of Georgia. I decided to return to school and pursue a Master’s degree and haven’t looked back since. Every day is a dream where I get to wake up and do what I really love: working with my hands to create beautiful, sustainable leather pieces that I hope will provide someone with years of use and enjoyment!
