Carlee Moon: Founder & Lead Clothing Designer

Blessed, and cursed, with the creative brain Carlee has been paving her own way since her youth in the South. While embarking on a path of personal discovery, Carlee met and fell in love with her partner, James, among the West Coast mountains, woods and fellow Deadheads. It is in those environments that Carlee was able to channel her creativity and passion into textiles - starting with a few stitching projects while pregnant with her firstborn, Liam. Carlee’s journey into motherhood is linked with her journey into business and the birth of Sinew Moon. Carlee continues to be inspired everyday by nature, her family, her community and her customers. It is your participation and support of Sinew Moon that makes this experience magical.

James Thomas: Co-Founder 

James is an experienced and worldly man having lived in the Midwest, the Southeast and now the West Coast - all while following his passions for nature, fishing and music. It is in the Southeast that James built his ties with the small artist community and that carried with him when he moved to Oregon. During his first few years in Oregon James met the love of his life, and partner, Carlee Moon. Together they followed their dreams of building an eco-conscious business that is creatively fueled by nature and the arts community. He continues to embrace the couples’ dreams and now the dreams of their two children.
