I'm Jessie, magic maker and owner of Land & Kamp. I believe authentic, imperfect, everyday life deserves long lasting goods with the same amount of grit as you.  

I use only the highest quality of fabrics, hardware and never cut corners to ensure the integrity of each item produced. I look out for your best interest and design with the highest standards meaning I don't use cheap materials and labor. And for that I offer hometown craftsmanship and local manufacturing right here in Portland, Oregon. Because we both know that long lasting relationships require hard work, willingness to learn and a little bit of stubbornness.

I've always been intensely curious to find out if I can make something. My mom gave me the freedom to create whatever my little heart desired when she taught me to sew.  I now use this to create durable goods for the office warriors, badass mamas and weekend wanderers.  With Land & Kamp's tough and durable bags  you can always say "yes" to the last minute happy hour, grocery shopping with the kiddos, scenic hikes or a dreaded dog washing day without having to worry about “Did I bring the right bag?”

My process


 

Materials

Ambition drives to locally source almost exclusively from the Pacific Northwest and USA such as Vaughan Brothers, Oregon Leather, Rooster Sewing and local hardware and fabric stores.  All materials have been carefully selected to ensure quality and lasting durability.  We intentionally celebrate and champion the abundant characteristics of the fabric.  These authentic features make for an exuberant and independent product. 

craftsmanship

Layers of material are coordinated on a barn wood table with focus on texture, pattern and durability of the fabric.  With a cup of tea in hand the materials shift and swap to produce a comforting collection of handcrafted goods each season.  Each piece is hand cut and assembled.  Every zipper is hand placed and carefully sewn in.  Plump pillows are hand packed with the perfect amount of stuffing.  Naturally this also takes extra time with eyebrows squinting and hands gripped on the details.   The ambitious handiwork makes each piece wonderfully imperfect and brings justice to it's independent character.  All of my bags and pillows are crafted by hand in my NE Portland home studio.  The exchange from maker to customer is often as close as a handshake because we are your neighbor.  You get that and that's why I want to make these for you.
