Kathryn Smythe is a crafts person creating old fashioned new things.
From her 1934 toaster to her 1962 Ford Galaxie hot rod she revels in the workmanship and ethos of days gone by. She has adopted from this earlier time a commitment to craft and integrity as she brings her unique sense of style, pattern, design and value to each found material. Smythe revives fabrics from the 1940's to the 1970's and creates beautiful modern accessories. 30 years of craft based industry experience in Toronto, a lifetime of sewing and her obsession for vintage items come together culminating in her unique vision.
Kathryn left the city of Toronto in 2014 to pursue her passion full-time.
She lives with Hank and Maisie the rescued, hairless wonder mutts!
