Melissa Parsons & Wendy Kim-Luellen
The two textile artists behind Made to Wear Accessories met at their day jobs but both had been working with fiber for a number of years. For Wendy, knitting was a welcome respite from college and she quickly became a fan of using wool. Melissa took weaving classes at KU and, following an unfortunate “found object” period, discovered silk and alpaca. The two have been collaborating since 2013, sharing their love of great fibers, fine craftsmanship, and the belief that luxury should be an everyday experience. Both Wendy and Melissa currently reside in Lawrence, KS.
