“… every dollar I spend is a vote that I cast for what kind of systems I want to support. I think often, as consumers, we forget that we have that kind of power when we think about the purchases we make.”  – Anna Lynett Moss of CHIYOME

On this week’s show, I talk with Anna Lynett Moss, the talent behind new-to-the-scene studio CHIYOME. Anna’s work for CHIYOME currently includes beautiful, sculptural leather handbags, pouches, and backpacks, as well as a collection of gorgeous Bauhaus-inspired quilts. Her recent collaboration piece for Of a Kind sold out in just a few hours, and it’s easy to see why: Anna’s creations are formal, playful, sleek, well-crafted, and conscientiously made. On today’s show, Anna will talk about how she transitioned from RISD art student to self-made designer, her commitment to community ethics in production, a few of the other artists and designers that inform her work, and the upcoming ON-RA, a new line of handbags for 2013.

Plus, new music on the show from Dog Bite, Ducktails, Fear of Men, Night Beds, and my favorite music discovery of 2013 (so far), Japanese folk/pop artist Shugo Tokumaru (trust me, you will want to hear this guy). So tune in and turn it up, as we talk design, art, community responsibility, business, indie music and more in this hour of Sew & Tell!
