Reclaim  Repair  Up-Cycle  Re-Purpose

In this Eco-Friendly Venture of Utilizing Pre-Produced and Manufactured Goods, it all Begins with a Mission to Reduce the Waste and Thoughtless Consumption of our Natural Resources.

All that we Use in Our Daily Lives Derives from Natural Resources; Many are Essential for Survival.  To Reclaim, Repair, Up-cycle, and Re-Purpose is Paying Respect to These Resources, and Staving-Off Their Depletion. Food for Thought: The Industrial Revolution Began Only About 260 Years Ago.

The Gates Have Opened to Artisanaworks Fleur-de-Lis Flea, an On-Line Flea Market of Choice Post-Consumer Finds for Home and Garden, with a Sprinkling of Distinct Wearables for Personal Adornment.  Browse an Eclectic Array of Home and Garden Decor and Furnishings, Architectural Salvage, Textiles, Artful Works and Designer Goods.

Each Item is Hand-Selected with what I have Determined to be a Rather Bohemian Eye.  Prissy and Pretense is not in the Equation.  If One is Seeking the 18 Carat Gold Encrusted Antique Porcelain, Hand Cut Austrian Lead Crystal, or a Relic from the Tomb of Tutankhamen, it will not be Found at Fleur-de-Lis Flea.  Rather, I Search for Items that Exhibit a Down-to-Earth Sense of Style, a Note-Worthy Shape, Pattern, Color, Texture, and Character.

I Have to Admit, I am in Love with the Creative Process, Start to Finish... From the Designing, to the Selecting of Materials, to the Hands-On Handcrafting.  Whether it Involves Hand-Cutting a Stencil and Daubing Textile Paint on to Fabric, or Creating a Design with Sewn Strips of Chenille Fringed Fabric, it is the Making that is the Magic for Me.

Quality Construction is a Must... Couture Cut Corners, Meticulous Seaming, and Hand-Stitched or Zipper Closures.  No “Rabbit Ears”, and No Cheapy, Bulging Flap-Over Closures, Please.

So, I am a Hold-Out.  All my “Artisanaware” Decorative Pillows are Made by Me, Right Here in my Little Artisanaworks Workroom / Studio, Texas Hill Country, USA.

With My Concern for the Environment, I Incorporate Eco-Friendly Processes and Materials.  Here are Several Chenille Pillows Made Entirely of Salvaged Remnant Fabrics.  The Chenille was Created by Sewing Fringed Selvedge Strips of Muslin, or Bias Cut Muslin or Linen/Cotton Strips, Row After Row.  The Black with Blue Chenille is so Lux and Soft, it Makes me Think of Chinchilla Fur!

Did you Know that in French, Chenille Means “Caterpillar”?  Appropriate, Don’t you Think?

Before moving back to my home State of Texas, I was engrossed in the Interior Design Trade building high-end custom seating, fabricating pillows, and running my Showroom and Prop Rental Gallery in Downtown Seattle.  The small 1500 square foot Showroom was an eclectic mix of special finds, goods from buying trips to Morocco, architectural salvage, antiques, textiles, and furnishings…a source for Interior Designers, Photo Stylists, the Film Industry, as well as the General Public.

I am picking-up where I left-off with a soon-to-launch “Fleur-de-Lis Flea”,  an On-Line Flea Market of  Select  Home  Décor,  Furnishings, and   Distinctive  Personal  Adornment.   I personally seek-out and select each item using an artful, rather Bohemian eye, and all the design sense that I have accumulated and ruminated over for years.  I am a Maker, so often goods are re-furbished, re-painted, embellished, or re-styled.  Some items are invented from salvaged parts of this and that.

Access to Fleur-de-Lis Flea is through my Artisanaworks Website which,  in addition, offers a Marketplace of Eco-Friendly,  One-of-a-Kind, and  Limited Edition Pillows and Textiles for the Home,  Fashion Wearable Clothing,  and  Fashion Accessory Scarves, Wraps and Jewelry…all Designed and Hand Crafted by me, Carol Tate, here in the Texas Hill Country.

The word “Artisan” was taken from the French word of like spelling, which was taken from the Italian word,  “Artigiano”.  Artisan in Spanish is Artesano (masculine), and Artesana (feminine). All mean a craftsperson…a skilled maker of hand-made goods, which can be functional goods, purely decorative goods, or both.  So, Artisanaworks is a Focus on Works Made by Hand.

Artisanaworks really began many years ago when owner, Carol Tate was hand-dying linen for her creations of textile wall art.  At that point, and later when Tate was building hand-crafted custom upholstered seating for the interior design trade in Seattle, the business was known simply as Carol Tate Company.
