The Cotton & Flax family

Zac and Erin

I spend a lot of time talking about how Cotton & Flax is a one woman operation. I take a lot of pride in creating work for Cotton & Flax from start to finish. I design the patterns, source the raw fabrics, silkscreen print the patterns by hand, and cut, sew and finish each item myself. Taking such a hands on approach is certainly not the most common approach, but I think the results speak for themselves: it’s worth it!

However, I’ve neglected to mention how lucky I am to have a group of supportive friends and family who help me along the way. Today I’d like to thank my boyfriend, Zac, who has supported me in all of my creative pursuits, especially Cotton & Flax. He keeps me company while I stay up late sewing and printing, he helps me schlep all my stuff to/from all those weekend craft fairs, he comforts me when I have moments of doubt about my business, and he’s always encouraging me to pursue the activities that make me happiest.

Thank you to Kate Miss, who took the photo above when we were vendors at Feliz in Austin.
