Our partner embraces the unique look of hand printed textiles and their ability to capture the feel of honest hand made goods. They started the craft business as a hobby and creative outlet at the beginning of 2010, literally printing out of a hallway coat closet in their 1 bedroom apartment! Needing to make a decision, they took a leap of faith, quit their jobs and devoted all of our time and attention towards crafting unique and whimsical home textiles.
Printed by hand using non-toxic water basked ink and 100% cotton and vintage textiles. With every item purchased with us, a tree is planted in partnership with the National Forest Foundation.
Screen printing is a printing technique whereby a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a substrate, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil. It first appeared in a recognizable form in China during the Song Dynasty (960–1279 AD). It was then adapted by other Asian countries like Japan, and was furthered by creating newer methods. Screen printing was largely introduced to Western Europe from Asia sometime in the late 18th century, but did not gain large acceptance or use in Europe until silk mesh was more available for trade from the east and a profitable outlet for the medium discovered.
