Hi! I'm Ellie. I’m a bag maker & a teacher. I started Klum House because I love curating fun, educational, and empowering experiences that encourage people to be adventurous with their creativity. I've been a professional bag maker for 20 years through RE Load Bags, a custom messenger bag brand I cofounded in 1998. Over the years I fell in love with teaching sewing through training folks to make bags for RE Load. I now carry that love for teaching forward through Klum House, a collaborative sewing studio & creative education space in Portland, Or.
