A mod geometric in the sunniest, happiest shade of sparkly maize.

The inspiration for my home goods comes from California coastal and desert living, scandinavian minimalism, midcentury textiles & furniture, and the earthy, organic, mellow vibe of the 60s and 70s. If you (or your mom) ever sipped herbal tea from a hand-thrown mug while wearing a patterned caftan -- or maybe you just wish! -- then I think we're going to get along just fine.

My original designs come about from whims, notions and lots of journal doodling in the garden. Then I turn sketches into hand-cut printing blocks and start stirring the ink and cutting the fabric. Each impression is made by hand with care in my smoke-free San Francisco home studio with custom-mixed, water-based fabric inks (heat-set for permanence). Most of my fabric ink mixes feature a bit of metallic sheen, which makes a striking contrast with the nubby linen, the star of the show. If you love linen, too, you know: it's an ancient fabric that's cool to the touch, drapes like a dream and is naturally allergy-free and antibacterial. Such good stuff.

HAPPILY HAND-MADE: All items are one-of-a-kind, printed by hand, so (very) slight variances may occur in placement and ink coverage. Please be aware that all computer monitors display color differently, though I always shoot in natural light and carefully color-correct product images.

CARE: Machine (gentle cycle) or hand wash cold > dry flat (or damp-dry in dryer) > hot steam iron.

SHIPPING: All items ship out via USPS first class, at which time I'll convo you to let you know your item is on its way. If you require faster shipping, no problem: just convo me prior to your purchase and we can calculate the costs.

PACKAGING: All placemat 4-packs are packaged rolled, with a hangtag and natural jute or hemp twine. The protective wrapping for your order will be plain newsprint and natural jute or hemp twine. I usually ship orders in standard USPS outer mailers, which are recyclable and reusable. I don't use bubble wrap or other plastic padding.
