NEST PURE

A BRIKA maker story

"There is inspiration everywhere! I see something great and I immediately look at it with a maker’s eye and see how it is put together or made. Many times I think, ‘I can make that!’"
“The first thing I think about when I wake up in the morning is my work, of course! I love what I do.”

“The details and care that I put into each product shows, and customers really appreciate the time and effort that goes into every item. ”


“My passion for the creative can be traced back to my elementary years, spent mapping out detailed floor plans of my childhood dream home. ”

Before finding her true passion in textile design, Samantha Cobos of nest PURE ran her own interior design firm. After realizing she had plenty of extra fabric lying around that could be made into beautiful products, she set to teaching herself how to sew “just about everything” through Internet sewing tutorials. “I started with little to no knowledge and taught myself through pure determination and trial and error,” she said. “There is great satisfaction in using your own hands to make a product.”


Her venture into making rugs, draperies and pillows quickly evolved into a love of bags and clutches. Each item in nest PURE is a true passion project – Samantha both creates the textile patterns and the product design. Inspired by mid-century modern and retro patterns, nest PURE’s line of bags, totes and clutches are designed for the way we live today, but also for the way we want to live in the future. With a focus on beautiful design coupled with functionality and sustainability, all nest PURE products are made from Samantha’s own uniquely patterned fabric and paired with the very best materials.


“There is not any one inspiration – I was once in a traffic jam and made a pattern from some brickwork along the freeway. ”
