In March 2020, volunteer sewists started making fabric face masks as the world shut down. Founder Mary Sanford had been sewing for most of her life, so it was natural for her to join their ranks. Eventually, a local zero-waste store began selling her masks. One thing led to another, and Swink House was born.
Several new sewing machines and sergers later, Mary has expanded her output to include a small collection of eco-friendly fabric items handmade in her studio in Nashville, Tennessee.
