Spotlight: Austin Designs

Sponsored Partnership: Austin Designs Martha’s Vineyard

Austin Designs, owned by Rachel Baumrin with a West Tisbury based studio, is one of a kind. Rachel’s product lines include handbags, scarves, jewelry and a fabulous herbal line. Each piece is a one-of-a-kind original. made from a combination of materials that are either remnants, re-purposed, vintage or new materials. Each piece is designed, hand built and completed in Rachel’s Martha’s Vineyard studio.

The Austin Designs herbal heat packs and Eye pillows are filled with 100% organic seeds, berries, and herbs, a percentage of which come from Rachel’s garden. She works with cotton and muslin only and there are no synthetic materials used in any of her pieces. This allows for them to be safe for the microwave and the people who are using them. The heat packs and eye pillows are also safe for children and babies, also featured in her children’s line prints.

Also to note, the name Austin Designs is not in anyway a reflection of Austin, Texas. Austin is Rachel’s middle name. Rachel’s products make great gifts for others, but also for oneself for self-care. You can find Austin Designs in various locations throughout the country, but you can also find everything via her online store at anytime.
