I'm Katie, the Owner and creative mind behind Grace and Cotton Apparel. We are a family owned and operated company in Greenville, SC. Our company launched in 2017 with our first design, "Mason Jars and Cotton". In 2018, we moved towards wholesale, selling to a few retail stores up and down the East Coast.
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, all of my shirt designs were drawn the old school way, pencil and paper. I had no clue about screen printing shirts. My printers loved me haha. When my husband bought me a drawing tablet and photoshop, I moved to creating designs on computer. I am the opposite of techy, but I'm surprised at how much I like digital art! As a homeschool mom (my girls are 7 and 5, and mittle boy was born in Nov 21') I have no free time, but I absolutely love making cute, encouraging t-shirts.
I believe in giving back which is why I do a number of limited edition fundraiser tees each year with 100% of profits going to particular ministries. I also help those who need to raise money for a mission trip or something by setting up their own t-shirt fundraiser event.
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. :)
