About Julie and Justin--
Yonder is a line of waxed canvas and printed canvas bags and pouches and printed tea towels and pillows created by Julie and Justin Nardy. Yonder started in 2013 when Julie created the first ever Yonder tote. She has been a seamstress for over 20 years and holds a BFA in fine art with emphasis in photography, painting and installation art.
The backbone of Yonder is individuality and craftsmanship. The bags are made of waxed canvas and use up-cycled materials in their construction. Each bag is unique on purpose. Julie uses local Missouri beeswax along with other waxes when preparing the wax canvas for Yonder bags.
At the end of 2015, Julie found herself yearning to take Yonder in a new direction and use patterns in her work. By early 2016, she had started talking with her husband, Justin, about ways she could integrate silk screened patterns into the line. Justin joined the Yonder team and started working with Julie on patterns and printing in mid 2016. Justin brings over ten years of screen printing experience with him. All of the patterns are designed and printed in their home studio.
Along with being a screen printer, Justin is also a successful musician and designer. His band, New Tongues, can be heard here. Julie is a co founder of the Berlin Bazaar, a yearly art experience in Columbia, Missouri.
