These turned out perfectly! Laura was so great to work with, quick to respond and helped me out with my shipping questions to make sure we go them on time. We couldn't be happier with how they turned out! thank you!

everything is better with a little BUTTER.

Welcome to BUTTER! With a focus on sustainable materials and methods, and an emphasis on color and pattern, each item is made one at a time with love.

BUTTER is a one-woman show, run from a studio in the back of my Austin, Texas home. My days are spent sewing, dreaming up new projects, experimenting with materials and processes, and the business side of, well, running a small business. I've been making things for as long as I can remember, and was enamored with handmade things from a very small age - from the clothes my mom and grandmother made, to the wooden toys and objects made by my father, grandfathers and neighbors. I went to art school for furniture design, and after years of designing furniture for mass production I decided to get back to my roots. I love starting with raw materials and an idea, and creating useful and beautiful objects.

I still work as a freelance furniture designer on the side, and occasionally work on large-scale installations. I've met some amazing artists and designers along my (very meandering) career path and love the energy that comes from collaborative projects.

For more information, check out my website ( www.butterdesignlab.com ) or find me on instagram ( @butterdesignlab ) - and feel free to drop me a line!

    I'm a designer trained in various disciplines (furniture, textiles, graphics, architecture) and recently decided to make the jump into being an independent designer/maker. And you know what? Quitting my job was one of the best decisions I ever made!
