|Etsy: Your place to buy & sell all things handmade
Meet Marla of Wren Willow:
My name is Marla and I’m a first time mom who has always been artistic and creative. I went to art school in NYC and stayed there for about ten years before moving upstate.
Wren Willow is the name of my daughter and I began this online venture with her in mind. While pregnant I had trouble finding things which fit the aesthetic I was looking for, so like many on Etsy I began making my own onesies for her to wear.
All work from sketching the design, dyeing the garment and hand screening the art and logo is done by me. I use water based inks and no harsh chemicals. There are many steps I take in each shirt I make.
I hand dye the shirt with Procion dyes. They bond to the fabric on a molecular level and will not bleed or fade in the wash. I screen the front as well as the back logo, heat set the ink and then sew in a care label. I put a lot of care into my work and welcome any questions or comments.
