Hi! I'm Kim (she/her/hers), the owner, designer, and creator of K.Azcona Designs.
My creative journey started with a love of art including drawing, painting, and eventually sewing. I later expanded my creative skills when I dove into the world of theatrical costuming. Years later I took things a step further and taught myself the art of bag making. I quickly fell in love with this medium where I could blend my love of art and sewing with the creativity of theatrical arts. I now utilize my varied skills and background to come up with truly unique, fun, and sometimes quirky bag designs and sewing patterns.
On a personal note, I identify as a Mexican-American cis-gender female with indigenous roots. My ancestors are Raramuri, also knows as Tarahumara (I highly recommend you research this incredible culture). Along with my husband, I care for an amazing child with special needs and a needy cat.
I believe that everyone, no matter their gender, race, sexual orientation, identity, ability, or culture, deserves to be treated fairly and equally. I believe that black lives matter, no human is illegal, women's rights are human rights, love is love, and access to safe abortions is a basic healthcare need. I do my best to partner with those who have the same values.

I don't take commissions, however I'm open to partnering with other designers and shop owners on projects. Feel free to contact me to discuss. There are two ways you can reach me—fill out the contact form or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
