Through careful sourcing of materials (with an emphasis on utilizing vintage & up-cycling) and production/fabrication solely from her San Marcos, Texas studio, Katinka hopes to raise awareness of the importance of handmade goods and how these factors can contribute to a prosperous and sustainable local economy.
