All The Things
For me, one of the great things about this business is the variety of items that we can make. We’ve really only scratched the surface. We have so many samples sitting in our sample basket in the office that 1) we had to start a sample box in addition to the sample basket and 2) we could make just one of every sample we have and create new products every few weeks for the next year. It’s pretty thrilling, actually, and overwhelming because we have to focus and pick only one at a time. It’s hard to know where to...
We love blankets. Love them. We have at least six blankets for each member of our family (if you want the math, there’s six of us), plus plenty for guests.

We created both the Tuck blanket and the Casey blanket within the first few weeks of receiving our machine, and the first product to come off our machine was the Tuck blanket, made of a luxurious blend of cotton and cashmere. It’s also lightweight, which makes it perfect for layering or for swaddling. The Tuck is generous sized at 42”x42” and is cozy...
Simplicity Plus Variety
“My philosophy? Simplicity plus variety.” – Hank Stram
I love the variety that life brings, but variety can easily overwhelm me. It’s that feeling that pushes me to create simple designs that can live in nearly any home, with nearly any family. The variety comes in colors, textures, and the occasional experiment.
When we work with artists and designers on projects that they have designed themselves, my view of simplicity kind of goes out the window since the main goal is to bring their vision to life.
But our line still consists of a...
