Jan Hurd, is a former interior designer who says, “I’ve always been interested in fashion and fabrics. Years ago I had an encounter with a belt.” She used to make belts and decided “to put my own twist on it.” Her reversible belts are made with colorful fabrics and sport eye-catching buckles. She also makes reversible headbands, cases for reading glasses, and decorative key holders. The Lexington resident donates a portion of her sales to nonprofit organizations, including local museums, Children’s Hospital, and the Northeast Animal Shelter. Several of the organizations that she supports focus on children: Room to Read, which establishes reading programs in schools where they are lacking; and KABOOM, which helps devastated cities, such as New Orleans, build playgrounds. Sales of her headbands help Locks of Love, an organization providing wigs to chemotherapy patients.
