 Scabby Robot's Story:

 

Established in 2006, Scabby Robot has been Jill Harrell's space for experimentation and play in object making and object selling.

As a designer and maker she started her business as an experiment to learn whether she could ‘make’ a business. She is passionate about bending and connecting textiles. She stands for a minimalist energy efficient approach that focuses on high quality materials, distinctive designs, and buoyant human interactions. Jill has a gift for expanding flat materials into sophisticated volumes and she focuses her efforts to wow people (a tepid reaction is not worth the effort). It’s important to her to offer everyday ordinary luxurious experiences like the pleasure of touching a gorgeous soft leather or seeing a luscious rich hue in your wardrobe.

All items are individually made by the designer. She hand cuts, constructs, finishes and ships each piece personally. She trusts her heavy duty industrial sewing machine to stitch and assemble the thick leathers she prefers to work with.

There's magic in the transformation from flat material to volumed vessel, from skin to realized object. Jill is always folding shapes in her imagination. She delights in daydreaming the motion between potential and tangible.
