Tell us about your brand.
My brand is unique for a couple of reasons. First, the artwork on all of my products I have drawn digitally. Second, I take great pride in the quality of the product I have chosen to put my art on. For example, flour sack towels are 100% cotton, lint-free, hemmed on all sides with a corner loop. Most importantly, to me, is the printed process is Direct-to-Garment printing, waterbased ink that bleeds into the fabric, leaving the printed area feeling softer. My notecards, prints, etc., are printed on high-quality paper with professional-grade Canon printers.
What's your story?
Unfortunately, a loss in my life was one of the reasons I started my business. My younger sister who was considered the artist in our family passed away. At that time, I started drawing again, which was something I had not done in years. Friends started asking if I could place my art on note cards, and the rest just followed. I have always loved Flour Sack Towels, which seemed like an excellent fit for my artwork, slowly becoming the core of my business.

What product do our customers need to know about and why?
The Point flour sack towels and my Incline towel, which I think is an excellent fit for a store that specializes in Pittsburgh!
In three words, why do you love Pittsburgh?
Love changing seasons
