"I feel like my designs tell a story that is bigger than just me. It is the story of living in the Midwest, going camping and hiking and sharing memories with friends. It's the story of togetherness and adventure. My designs help people connect, and I think that is larger than myself." •
Kelly Korver is the maker behind @birdskeptnorth, a company she started in 2012 as a creative outlet while going to school at NDSU for Apparel and Textiles. Inspired by North Dakota and the colors of nature, she began by designing and creating silk screened shirts and hand painted silk scarves. Her product line has grown to include apparel for all ages and upcycled wool sweater creations, and today, Kelly runs Birds Kept North full time, designing and creating all products by herself in her home in Lakeville, MN. Her handmade product line can be found on Etsy as well as a fabric surface design line on Spoonflower. •
