About

Giving is True Having

We're a mother and daughter team based in Portland, Oregon (Joan) and Greenville, South Carolina (Katie). Joan has years of sewing experience, and has owned her own sewing and pattern businesses, taught sewing for 17 years (to middle schoolers!), and made more wedding dresses than she can count, including Katie's.

We started True Having after creating pillows from Pendleton fabrics for our own homes in the summer of 2016. We then sold a few of our pillows wholesale to a local shop that fall, and decided to turn our efforts into an Etsy shop, which we opened in December 2016. Because we live across the country from one another (Joan in Portland, OR and Katie in Greenville, SC), our process is a little unique. Each piece in our shop is handmade by Joan using natural fibers and then shipped in small batches to Katie, who styles and photographs them. Joan sources the majority of our fabrics from Pendleton® Woolen Mills, a company based in the Pacific Northwest and known for its high-quality wools and strong community involvement. We’re inspired by the rich colors and textures of our native Northwest Oregon and we're grateful to honor the heritage of the Pacific Northwest in our products, many of which are one- or two-of-a-kind. We would love to create something just for you, so please message us if you'd like to inquire about a custom order.

Our shop name comes from a Charles Spurgeon quote that says, “Giving is true having, as the old gravestone said of the dead man, ‘What I spent I had, what I saved I lost, what I gave I have.’” It’s a great reminder for us to have a heart of generosity in all that we do.

For every sale, we donate 15% of our profits to One Day’s Wages, an organization doing incredible work around the world to alleviate extreme poverty. Ultimately, we want to see this business grow, but only if we’re creating quality for our customers, giving back to a world in need, and having some fun along the way.
