RikRak Studio is a home based business selling wonderful hand made one of a kind homewares and accessories. Each piece is made from repurposed vintage fabric by Krystal, who started to craft when her grandmother taught her how to quilt and sew while she was pregnant with her son. From there, she has built her business successfully from her home in Ottawa, Canada and has sold thousands of pieces, both on Etsy and from over 90 stores around the world. (Read more of her inspirational story in this Etsy interview).
I love Krystals’ work – she chooses the most vibrant fabrics, and everything is finished to such a high standard – there are a few things from her shop going on my wish list for sure 🙂
