About the Designer


For over 20 years California native Joslyn West has been using vintage repurposed materials to provide her dedicated clientele high quality, handmade fashions and accessories.


Joslyn's creative journey began as a child, accompanying her mother to various flea markets throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. There Joslyn developed an appreciation for the vintage textiles she would come across. Fascinated by the amazing craftsmanship and needlework Joslyn was inspired to learn more about the lace, linens, blankets and other fabrics she encountered. During this period Joslyn noticed how a small defect could greatly devalue an otherwise beautiful piece of material. Seeing an opportunity to work around these blemishes and create a new life for these unique materials Joslyn began designing pillowcases that highlighted the beauty of the fabrics.   Joslyn began selling her pillows and other bedding at various craft shows and makers markets throughout the region and quickly developed a loyal following. Using this momentum lead Joslyn to expand into clothing and found herself at the forefront of the upcycled fashion movement.


Fast forward several decades later and Joslyn West Designs continues to create unique, handmade, one of a kind upcycled fashions and accessories. From whimsical cashmere children's sweaters to stylish linen tops. From needlepoint tote bags to bedding. Joslyn West Designs continues to expand and evolve.
