“I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way... things I had no words for.” - Georgia O'Keeffe

Artifact: How long  have you been selling textiles and beautiful garments?
Anna: I started selling my own handmade items on Etsy in 2008- mostly jewelry, kid’s clothes and home decor. I saved my pennies and opened my first brick and mortar, Branch Birdie in 2010 focusing on gifts, home decor and globally sourced textiles…in 2015 I opened Le Souk Le Souk and refocused on slow fashion apparel lines all designed by women, personally sourced rugs and textiles and small brand accessories. Everything I WANT in my home and closet can now be shared with others on my website. It’s pretty much a dream job!

Artifact: What sparked starting Le Souk Le Souk?
Anna: My children were growing up, I was starting to find time to call my own again and felt ready for both a personal and public “rebranding” if you will.  I believe in mixing treasured pieces that you save up for and have forever with more affordable or thrifted items and that’s what Le Souk Le Souk is- a curated place to find those textile rich items that you will cherish forever and pass onto your babies.

Artifact: When looking to get inspired, where is your favorite location to travel to?
Anna: Because living in Portland can get a bit grey, to say the least, I prefer traveling to sunny places.  Everywhere I’ve been in Asia has been incredibly inspiring due to the artisan nature of textile design and the food... However the architecture and weaving in Morocco is pure magic! But really there’s inspiration EVERYWHERE if you’re open to it- especially in nature (and thrift stores!).

Artifact: What is your most prized collectable in your home?
Anna: I have a collection of antique purses and clutches that were both my grandmother’s and great grandmother’s. Those are really special to me, all of the beading and silk is incredible!

Artifact: Who has helped influence your style?
Anna: I supposed growing up in a little Southern, Oregon hippie town ingrained my love of flowing skirts, velvet and seventies style…but I was also in awe of my Grandmother’s perfect lipstick and pristine tailored blouses whenever visiting her in the bay area.

Artifact: What do you hope to teach your kids about style and creating a home of their own?
Anna: I believe that surrounding yourself with colors, textures and pieces that make you happy is key- I don’t keep anything in my home or closet that doesn’t make me feel joy, positive nostalgia or excitement. It doesn't matter what is trending, just follow your heart and that environment with help you to exude creativity. Be uniquely you!
