This belt looks amazing with SO MUCH! Not only is it adorable and reversible but it comfortably contours to your body with grace and ease. So flattering! Thanks again Kristen!

About

fashion + ink = fink

Fink has been going for over 9 years and I am loving it more than ever. I never tire of making clothing and get excited every single day to create new pieces. Coffee, love, music and art keep me alive and very happy.

Fink is a one-woman business and I am responsible for all aspects of this business ~

I draw, create, design, print, sew, hand make, list and ship all items myself. I make each piece completely from scratch using fabric I hand paint, screen print and block print using my original hand drawn artwork. Each piece of fabric is treated as a canvas and truly a work of art - I lay them out (approx 1-3 yards at a time) and work on them with a variety of printing and painting styles as if they were to be framed.

My creations go directly from my studio to you!

I use high quality materials to make the prints durable and wearable. I do not cut corners - each piece gets careful attention from start to finish.

The imperfections in my prints are intentional. I hand print the fabrics per garment / per order - I heat set my printed fabrics several times to ensure longevity (please follow washing instructions included with each order). I print them as works of art and do not want to replicate factory style printing in any way ~ showing the soul and human touch in each piece makes them truly works of art and not just another printed garment.

Each garment design is my own ~ I do not use sewing patterns and free-hand cut each piece - one by one - from my imagination. My goal is to make these garments exciting, comfortable and totally unique - I do not aim to duplicate made-to-order items exactly ...I want each piece to be truly one of a kind.

I am a self taught designer and have learned so much over these years and have worked hard to make my designs better and better - quality, durability, comfort and beauty. I want you to feel and look amazing as you wear these works of art.

When you buy handmade - you are not just buying an object ; you are contributing to a better society where the individual has an opportunity to shine and grow and inspire others to do the same.

    I'm a One-Woman business in St Louis, MO, USA. I do everything myself from start to finish. I do not own a car - I walk and ride my bike everywhere and use my fabrics down to the very last inch to avoid waste.

Hello there -

Paypal is the safest and preferred payment for iheartfink - I have used Paypal for many many many years and highly recommend it for safe and secure online purchases.

I DO NOT offer Direct Checkout at this time - Etsy is having problems with their payment system with major delays and complications. You can easily use any credit card through Paypal and if you need assistance I am happy to help!

I do not use sewing patterns for my clothing - each piece is created freestyle so every item is completely unique. I do this because it makes it a creative and fun experience and you get something that is absolutely one of a kind.

Follow me on Facebook and Instagram for ideas for custom prints and designs - the possibilities are almost endless: Please contact me for more info and pricing for custom prints/colors/designs. I would love to make a custom Fink just for You!

WASHING INSTRUCTIONS - for most of my items I recommend they be washed inside out in cold water and hung to dry

for some of the silkier fabrics *pieces made with rayon/cotton blend* I recommend hand washing in a mild detergent and hanging to dry

If you wish to cancel an order, please simply convo me as asap (no more than 24 hours after order) or request cancellation through Etsy

Additional policies and FAQs
WASHING INSTRUCTIONS - for most of my items I recommend they be washed inside out, gentle cycle, in cold water and hung or laid flat to dry.

Please use gentle detergents that do NOT have oxy or bleach additives. the hand printing is durable if washed and cared for gently and will stay fresh and last longest if handled with love and care.

for some of the silkier fabrics *pieces made with rayon/cotton blend* I recommend hand washing with the mildest detergent and laying flat to dry. Please avoid wringing out - simply press out excess water to rinse.

Hot Iron is O.K. :)

****The gentle handling during washing will help your special handmade, hand printed garment last longer and look fresher for years to come! I want you to love your Fink - taking special care will be worth it!
