Rachel Elise Aughtry
Fibers Rachel Elise Aughtry is a fiber artist living and working in her home studio in Weaverville, NC. Together with her husband Bo, Rachel sells her hand-crafted bags under the brand Rachel Elise. Rachel Elise bags are screenprinted in-house and use natural, durable materials to build backpacks, purses, and pouches that are made to last. The original illustrations printed on RE bags draw inspiration from nature and traditional craft, both integral aspects of life in Weaverville. Rachel Elise bags can be found in several shops local to the Asheville area and in stores and galleries across the country.
