Raised by a design savvy mother, Betsy learned to value objects of meaning: art, culture, antiques, and, most notably, textiles. With a passion for traveling and discovery, Betsy majored in art at Skidmore College and spent four inspiring months studying in India before receiving her Master's Degree in Textile Design from Philadelphia University. Betsy's love of creatures and flora, hues and patterns, artistic expression and material culture formed the foundation for her company.
