We are honored to introduce our production manager, Libby O’Bryan. Libby is the founder of Western Carolina Sewing Company (Sew Co.), in the historic Oriole Mill near Asheville, NC.
Libby shares our commitment to boutique quality US manufacturing, and to preserving and creating jobs in our domestic economy. She was trained in fashion design at the Fashion institute of Technology, business administration at the University of San Francisco, and fine art at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
From the Oriole Mill website: “The team is composed of veteran factory workers who learned how to sew on the job during the South’s manufacturing heydays of the 60s and 70s and have been sewing ever since. They are teamed with women who studied fine dressmaking and costume design. The hybrid backgrounds are wonderfully meshed to create an artisanal setting where everyone is learning from each other.”
