About NolanProvost

Sales 1,002
On Etsy since 2015


A Textile Designer/Photographer and an Illustrator/Graphic Designer met on a dating app.

Almost immediately, the creativity started flowing.

By supporting each other with their businesses and artistic work, a similar aesthetic and sensibility began to take shape. A shared love of sourcing fine materials, creating unique versions of everyday objects, and incorporating natural materials and elements into daily life.

Frequently asked questions
Where do you get your fabric?

Sourcing fabric is easily my favorite part of the production process. The fabric for the hand dyed items is repurposed from a local fabric printing company. The fabrics for the Chambray and Linen lines come from a number of sources, all American companies that manufacture most of their fabrics overseas. I always look for domestically manufactured fabrics first to meet production needs, but occasionally run into limitations of availability. Once the fabric reaches my studio in North Carolina, each piece is cut, washed, and sewn by hand. If you are a domestic fabric manufacturer or supplier, please get in touch!

Do you sell your fabrics?

Yes! Contact me for information on purchasing the hand dyed fabrics. Chambray and Linen purchasing depends on availability.

Do you do custom orders?

Limited custom ordering is available January, February, March, and July. Please send your ideas and specifications in a convo and I can let you know about availability.

What type of dyes do you use?

The majority of the hand dyed fabrics are dyed with low-impact MX dyes. These dyes require less water that natural or traditional dyes and can be activated (the chemical that makes the dye bond with the fabric) with household washing powder. Once the dye is has been used up (or "exhausted") it can be safely poured down the drain. I plan out my dye runs in order to maximize the dye usage and minimize the amount of water needed to dye, soak, and wash our fabrics.

At the moment I don't use natural dyes except for Indigo, as most require metal mordants to activate the dye. However, I'm always experimenting with new dyes and open to anything that is sustainable and leaves as small an impact as possible.

I sent you an email/convo/message on social media and you haven't responded. What's the deal?

Owning a business has made me terrible at correspondence. Please know that it's me and not you. Most likely, I'm working on finding space in my schedule/workload/studio to accommodate the wonderful opportunity you are offering. Thank you so much for your patience and kindness.
