Holly is the mistress of manufacturing for our Gravel & Gold Goods in-house line. She oversees production from the chicken scratch sketches to the French seam finishes.

We started collaborating with Holly years ago when she had a Rainbow-walled tailoring shop on Valencia Street, here in the Mission. We joined forces shortly after and she’s has been manifesting objects with us ever since.

Holly cut her teeth in the fabric and sewing world in the CCA textiles department, where she studied textile history and surface design and later with the brilliant Russian Master Tailor, Victoria Abashidze, with whom Holly did a post-graduate apprenticeship.
