“Inherent in the printing process is a balance between physically active work and contemplative design development. I love that it encompasses both and demands balance in return.”

It only took a short stint at a textile company for Lauren to develop a love for screenprinting. She started to explore this passion, incorporating painting too, and now spends her days whipping up dining table standards and eye-catching totes. She handcrafts every item herself, but the final step requires the help of those closest to her. Finished designs are put to the test at dinner parties where Lauren hopes to receive honest critiques. The feedback is always positive, but with one downside –– her guests often like the napkins so much they're afraid to actually use 'em.
