HWD bags and textiles are created in Portland, Oregon in Heidi's home studio. They're unique, produced in small batches and made to last.
HWD waxed canvas bags are water resistant.
Always concerned about impact on the environment, we strive to minimize packaging and use recycled/recyclable materials whenever possible, as well as keep fabric waste to a minimum by printing fabric panels to size.

Heidi grew up in Yakima, Washington and attended Washington State University where she earned her Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts with an emphasis in Graphic Design.
In 1997, Heidi relocated to Portland, Oregon and worked for several years at an offset printing company, soaking up any knowledge she could gain.
In 2002, Heidi earned her Bachelor of Science in Interior Design and used her new design skills to fix up a 1926 Portland Bungalow.
After completing her second degree, Heidi continued her career as a project manager and worked for a large corporation for almost 13 years managing new product launch collaterals. Toward the end of her tenure, she received a gift card from a coworker and bought a beginner screen printing kit and taught herself how to print on fabric, something she had always dreamed of doing.
Now, Heidi's following her passion, working with her hands and creates screen printed bags and textiles full time.
