Member since October 26, 2010

I am a textile designer living in Charleston, S.C. My company, Proud Mary works with weavers and sewing cooperatives in Guatemala as well as a printing cooperative in South Africa to create unique, patterned textile goods. Our line includes fabric by the yard, home and fashion accessories. Our goal is to provide a global exploration of textiles connecting the consumer with artisans in developing countries through their craft.

Proud Mary currently supports Nest ( and their mission to support women artisans in developing countries. We donate a percentage of our handbag sales to Nest and I am currently starting a Nest Chapter in Charleston, S.C.
