I'm Katie, the Owner and creative mind behind Grace and Cotton Apparel. Our company launched in 2017 with our first design, "Mason Jars and Cotton". It was a total hit and still is our best selling tee. In 2018, we moved towards wholesale, selling to a few retail stores
I've been drawing for as long as I can remember, doodles as a child and comissioned portraits as an adult. When I first started this business, I would hand-draw all my shirt designs the old school way, pencil and paper. I had no clue about screen printing shirts. My printers loved me haha. Last year, my husband gave me a drawing tablet and photoshop. I am the opposite of techy, but I'm surprised at how much I like digital art! As a homeschool mom (my girls are 6 and 4) I don't have free time at all really, but this business is my creative outlet if you will :)
I believe in giving back which is why we give 10% to our local Christian Women's Pregnancy Clinic, The Piedmont Women's Center. They Provide free Ultrasounds, pre and post-natal care as well as counseling.
I also do a number of fundraiser tees from time to time, some for ministries I follow or sometimes for those who need to raise money for a mission trip or something.
Every gift and talent we have can be used to encourage and bring others to Christ in some small way. Maybe, even by making a t-shirt. :)
