Steves tracing

Founded by Deena Bailarina in 2013, Musical Miscellany (DBMM) satisfies the creative compulsions of this eclectic woman.

Deena has always loved textiles and fell in love with these bold and gorgeous Dutch African fabrics while living between the Netherlands and Mozambique (southern Africa) during her PhD research.

Deena is an artist, dancer, amateur musician (a shy one! Good luck getting her to play or sing for you!) and researcher who has lived in 7 different countries spread across 4 continents. She’s been waiting for years to call somewhere ‘home’ and be able to fire up her sewing machine! She’s happy to be settling down in beautiful North Carolina.

Deena decided to combine her love of visual and 3D textile art with her desire to make highly functional AND beautiful creations for her fellow artists.

Everything you see at DBMM has been individually designed by Deena to bring the beauty and craftsmanship of music and of the instruments themselves into the accessories. It’s such a shame to toss our most loved artistic pieces — our babies! — into dreary plastic (yes, nylon is plastic) bags!

If you’re a fan of bright and lively textiles and have been searching for the perfect music gear (or perhaps a musically-themed gift), then look no further. ¬†Help us on our quest to eradicate petrochemical fabrics from the world of music. One case at a time.

Enjoy your time in the world of DBMM and please get in touch with any questions or special requests you may have.
