Each thrifted garment is a blank canvas for my original prints.

I once had a favorite top that no longer interested me, so I decided to rejuvenate it with one of my block printed designs. When I wore it, I got compliments, and was asked if I was selling other tops like it. I realized that some people want to wear clothes that are conversation pieces that set them apart from other people. I also found that there were people like me, who feel good about wearing clothes that use zero waste to create.

I have a work background in art education, fine arts, graphic design, and theater arts. And I love fashion, bold patterns, and thrifting! Out of these loves, my Etsy shop, CJK Print Studio was born.

My shop offers you clothing that are truly unique and completely hand printed. I rescue beautiful clothing from thrift shops that appear to be hardly worn or brand new. The structure, shape, fabric and color of each garment informs my decisions about how to design and print its surface so no two items in my shop are ever alike. Each thrifted garment becomes like a blank canvas for my original block prints!

My designs are all original and drawn first onto rubber blocks, then carved with linoleum carving tools. An eco friendly block printing ink is rolled onto the surface of the carved block and then pressed by hand onto the surface of the fabric. This process yields the resulting look of a hand printed surface, showing the slight variations of each print while offering you a unique, one of a kind item.

Some garments can take a few days to print if several colors and blocks are used. Once the ink has cured it is completely washable and permanent. I wash and iron every item of clothing before sending it out to you. Cold water wash and tumble drying on low are recommended for most items.

If you have any questions please feel free to convo me.
