Request a suitcase

I would be honored to create a pop-up suitcase for a loved-one you’ve lost to COVID-19. I use the obituary or memorial information, remove names for privacy and create a one-of-a-kind, handmade pop-up suitcase to be included in the Remarkable Presence installation from September-October.
