Kara Larson began sewing in her sister's garage and selling her dresses from a clothing line in her back yard or out of a suitcase while on the road. Nothing is traditional for this gal. With a flair for making dresses, Kara created an entire line for women and the Wild Carrots line for little gals and guys.
Loving her hometown of Portland, Oregon, Kara decided to put down some roots. In the spring of 2000 she opened her boutique called Tumbleweed.
Hands full, she's also got a wonderful husband, John, and a son, Will. Oh yes... and a fixer of a bungalow.
Inspired by her young son, she opened Grasshopper in 2004, a whimsical children's shop with toys, clothes, and books.
Though life and business are thriving, Kara still creates a laid back atmosphere that makes you feel like you're stepping into a dressing room when you walk into Tumbleweed. Her dresses hang on the racks accompanied by other designers' offerings.
"You can get just about anything a gal would love." Kara explains, "We offer beautiful clothes for everyday life. I feel you should be able to wear a dress strolling down the aisle of grocery store then off to a wedding."
Versatile and beautiful quality clothing is what you will find at Tumbleweed. Check out our blog for the latest styles and fabrics and new arrivals.
