“As soon as I came out of the womb, it was sort of, ‘Here’s a paintbrush, express yourself,’” says Emma Fineman of growing up with family creative enough for a Wes Anderson plot. “Having discussions about art from a young age really shaped my perspective and direction in life.” That path included attending an intense painting program at her grandmother’s alma mater, the Maryland Institute College of Art, where Emma found herself playing with sewing and leatherwork on the side.


Inspired by colorful, expressionist works by Morris Louis and Helen Frankenthaler, she decided to fuse her interests in watercolors and wearables by creating Weft + Hide in 2015. (A perk: Getting deep into San Francisco’s booming maker scene.) Her hands are responsible for every last aspect of her killer leather clutches and wallets, from cutting and sewing to screenprinting her signature monstera leaf and cactus designs, and she works with a local company to digitally print her cheery paintings onto comfy-yet-chic silk tops and kimonos. No surprises here: Her parents couldn’t be more proud. —leah bhabha
