The Story

Sennit + Sauvage (pronounced like Senate and Sew-vaʒ ) is a handcrafted collection of leather goods and textiles for wear and decor.  My theory-- that being handmade does not mean an item shouldn't be held to a high quality standard-- guides everything I create.
I am often influenced by color, texture and pattern and the way they make me feel. As a clothing and textile designer, I hand-paint and dye fabrics and textiles in order to create one-of-a-kind wearable art clothing for my customer. I strive to make pieces that are unique and well-made, while still being wearable on an every-day basis. I also work to make my pieces fit a wide variety of body sizes and shapes right from the rack. That said, a majority of my clientele, including myself, are in the plus-size range. It can be difficult and sometimes impossible to find high quality art clothing and hand-created textiles in that size range without prohibitive costs for custom sizing and design. I have made it a personal mission to create a size-inclusive range of clothing that is completely hand-designed and made here in St. Louis.
By utilizing techniques and materials handed down through generations, I strive to make beautiful, well-made, useful objects and size -inclusive clothing that can be enjoyed for years to come. All of my pieces are created by my hands in St. Louis, MO and are either one-of-a-kind or limited edition. 
My name is Allyson Bailey Wilmowski. With nearly 12 years in the handcrafted arts, I currently live and create from my home studio in St. Louis. I couldn't do any of this without help from my husband Tom; and our daughters, Tabitha and Beatrice as well as my mom, Linda.
