About Me I Kristin Baana
By day, I'm a production artist and designer. But on nights and weekends, I design and create original handmade clothing from my home in Chanhassen, Minnesota.
It all began when I started repurposing my little girl's clothes by putting her outgrown items together to make whole new outfits; that's when I realized I should do the same with my clothes. As a busy mom of two, it's tough to find time to go shopping. When I did manage to get to the stores, I wasn't finding any outfits that fit my style and personality.
People started noticing my work and soon friends and colleagues started asking me to make pieces for them.
My designs are all created from new and found materials; I love giving clothing a second chance at life. Finding new ways to combine colors, patterns, textures and shapes to craft unique and beautiful pieces of wearable art.
I hope you love wearing them as much as I enjoy making them!
