Vendor Spotlight: Katie Jean

Through her travels to Europe, Indonesia, and Japan, Katie has been inspired by artisans’ handiwork at home and around the world. Her mother taught her the love of fabric and sewing, but her desire to create using vintage materials didn’t blossom until her third child was born, when she stitched her first handkerchief to an onesie to make a baby dress.

Katie’s flair is in taking her beautiful collection of vintage linens found at estate sales and thrift shops from around the country and refashioning these treasured pieces into items that will be enjoyed for generations anew. Each new creation is made with a special vintage touch from the past with a look to the future.

Today, her collection has expanded to include yo-yo shirts, tablecloth dresses and cozy blankets. Look for her new line, baby jean, a fresh collection of organics for the softest skin.
