Rogue Habits began as a journey to reconnect with myself. I was going through a bit of a hard time believing that I had to choose between happiness and success…until I began to craft again, to draw, to write…all the things I loved. Then, I started making jewelry. It started with a single pair of feather earrings that I traded for materials while living in Costa Rica. It seemed that through art, through the fulfillment of being able to create something that made others feel…confident, beautiful, inspired, I was able to reconnect with myself. I was able to make a life out of doing something I loved. From there I couldn’t stop.
I interviewed artists to write about them, and then started collaborating with them. Here, you’re able to have the experience of learning about the artist, their background and story, how the products came to be, and the culture behind it. This goes beyond ethically sourced materials (which we do) or fair trade principles (which we also make sure to follow), to personal relationships. You’ll know each artist well, see the creation of each product, and be directly supporting the creative community.
Created + Found
I work in conjunction with artists to co-create small runs of products, designed specifically for Rogue Habits. Here, you can find artists that are completely obscure, or maybe even a trending creator, but get something from them that you cannot anywhere else. We take pride in creating very small, incredibly personal, signature lines.
As a lover of all things deviant and novel, and as an avid world traveler always looking towards the next adventure, I have collected an array of treasures from my life of wanderlust. Some from artisans in far away open air bazaars, others in tucked away street corners, and the rest in more local peculiar haunts.
