New Leaf Works

I worked with Gretchen Cook, the designer behind New Leaf Works, to help her work out some of the technical challenges and construction details of her line of minimalist handbags, pillows, and accessories. Her wok has been featured in The Washington Post Express, The Washingtonian, Metro Weekly, Energy of Style, and others.

I could never have started without Allison! I knew I had the design thing down OK, but hardly knew a bobbin from a spool when I started the sewing part. She’s an amazing teacher and soon I was stitching together complex handbags from unuser-friendly materials. Allison is a genius at problem solving and extremely generous with her time.  – G.C.
