Charleston, South Carolina, United States

Designer (Textile Design)

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 (www.buildanest.com) 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.
