I love finding beauty in everyday objects - and that's just what these linens are. So useful, and so special: my original illustrations and designs, screen printed with water-based inks, and all on fine luxury linen that's sustainable and eco-friendly. Not only do these linens replace disposable napkins, but put them in the washer and dryer and they just get softer. Best of all, they add style and beauty to daily breakfasts and elegant dinner parties alike. They also make wonderful gifts!
My first collection of linens had a fantastic reception and was featured in popular design blogs and well known magazines (see my website for more) -- and with your help I'm confident this second collection will shine even brighter!!
The funding we raise here will pay for the gorgeous linen, as well as the printers and sewers. In productions such as this one, there are a lot of initial costs that make new designs quite expensive to make -- in particular there are minimum quantity orders for fabric, printing, and sewing - plus new screens, custom color mixing, samples, and labor of course. The goal of $3,700 set here is the very minimum needed to make the ever-popular (so many requests!) linen calendar, napkins and tea towels.
I've been wanting to make more linens for almost a year now, and so I already have a sketchbook full of designs, artwork, and color swatches. The first step will be to whittle my ideas down to the most exciting designs, and, if we're able to raise more than the set goal, the more designs and product we can make -- like aprons, coasters, make-up bags and weekend bags, throw pillows, quilts - and believe it or not I have more ideas up my sleeve!
I hope to have the linens finished for the holidays (ready set go!!)-- I'm participating in the SF Renegade Craft Fair (Dec. 18 &19), and i'd love to have them available on my website for you and other holiday shoppers too. For this reason, i'm shortening the funding duration to just 20 days (rather than the typical 30 days).
In addition to supporting a small business and the arts, I've also created incredible rewards here for you: an inside peek at my design and production process, the new collection at wholesale prices, a 2011 linen calendar, limited-edition fine art prints, custom linens just for you, an unparalleled dining experience, and even a sampling of the entire collection (remember, the more funding we raise here, the larger the collection!).
Thank you SO MUCH!!
