I love seeing the ways you style Cotton & Flax goods in your home! Here’s a peek into some of my recent favorite photos from customers on social media ⏤ thanks so much for tagging me in your photos of Cotton & Flax pieces. Do any of these real homes inspire you?
It’s been a year and a half since I moved Cotton & Flax from Los Angeles to San Diego, and I’m excited to share one of the year’s biggest developments: a brand new retail shop! This is the flagship store for Cotton & Flax, after six years of studio life. It’s been a labor of love to get the store set up, and I can’t wait to show you the details.
Abigail Grey visited the shop to take some photos last month ⏤ see the shop through her lens below!
A lovely feature for Balboa fabrics: this awesome, eco-friendly DIY project in Bust Magazine! Grab the Oct/Nov ’18 issue to see the full project, and learn to make your own beeswax wraps from Balboa fabric. The profile of cover gal Busy Philipps written by my friend Lisa Butterworth is a timely feminist read, too. Always excited to see my work featured in my favorite magazines.
Back in May, I moved Cotton & Flax into a new studio space ⏤ a micro-retail space with tons of natural light. It’s been a big adjustment to move from my industrial studio space (where I was manufacturing most of the Cotton & Flax products myself) to this new public-facing space, and all the opportunities that come with. I’ve spent the last few months getting the space set up, and I thought I’d share a bit of the process with you.

I’m thrilled to see that Cotton & Flax’s zero waste initiatives are highlighted in an article in San Diego CityBeat this week. They rounded up artists and designers from around the city who are reducing their consumption and waste, and moving towards a zero waste lifestyle, and it’s amazing to think about what these efforts could achieve. Proud to be featured alongside these sustainability-focused business leaders!
This week, I’m the featured guest on Creative Biz Rebellion, a podcast that tells the stories of creative business owners, and goes behind the scenes to share what it’s really like to live a creative life.
In my interview, I share a lot of the knitty gritty of what goes into my work as a designer. If you’re curious about what I’ve been working on lately, listen to the episode now!
