I started out making T-Shirts for my son after not finding the selection I wanted at most stores. I then figured, I could very well make shirts for other cool kids like him! So off to the markets I went, selling cool kids T-Shirts at festivals, farmers markets, and anywhere else I thought would be a good place for fun, funny shirts for kids. This allowed me to meet some extremely talented, totally-cool artisans all around the Chicagoland area, After selling in a few pop-up shops, I fully believed that I could do this on my own! So here we are, at Made - An Artisan Collaborative. My shirts are just a small area among 1400+ Square Feet of artisan greatness! Oh, and my husband you see in the picture has helped a little too.
