Making beautiful things is in Bekka Palmer’s blood. “I grew up surrounded by people who always had a project—I was always either sitting on my mom’s sewing room floor or helping my dad in his woodshop,” she reminisces about her Denver childhood. As a teen, Bekka carved out a creative nook for herself with photography, eventually putting down her camera to pick up graphic design in school at Seattle University. After moving to New York to work for super cool companies like Tattly, the lens became her sidekick once again, and she started biking all over the city for the shoots that started as her side gigs and turned into a full-time thing in 2013.

But, unable to resist the lure of another stimulating project, Bekka found herself being tugged back to those early days spent under her mom’s sewing machine. “I started allowing myself several hours a week to just do fun work, as I call it. I was trying out weaving and embroidery and just doing whatever felt right for that day. That's when I discovered how much I love making rope baskets,” she explains. She was good at it, too, forming color-splashed planters, catch-all trays, and even tote bags out of coiled cord. And, true to her making-things, making-thing-happen genes, she began selling them in 2017 under Closed Mondays—a tongue-in-cheek name for a line run by a lady who never seems to take a day off.
