This week’s Adventurer Profile features those fabulous ladies over at Free Time Industries. With each member employing her own unique skill set and lens for aesthetic, the fantastic 4 come together to C R E A T E and “exist to contribute innovative idea to design culture”. They come and go from their inspiring subterranean Seattle studio, and the traces of their work and their beings pop up around the city as though left by invisible little creatures. Some examples of their work can be found in The Adventure Store: a leather holster made from reclaimed leather and brass buckles, and an owl comb made from walnut and pearl inlay (photos below).
