Artist of the Month: Appetite
We’re all huge fans of Appetite over here! They screenprint a beautiful array of their own designs onto fabric and craft them into a fun mix of housewares and accessories. We have a good selection of their purses, cosmetic bags, clutches and wristlets, potholders, napkins, dishtowels, pillows, and more! Their products make excellent gifts for so many different kinds of people!
Appetite is designed and manufactured by hand in Portland, OR by sister duo, Erin Albin and Megan Oser. Erin, upon graduating from the University of New Mexico with a fine arts degree, founded the business in 2005 printing fabric and making bags at her dining room table. Soon, Megan was lured to lovely Portland and joined Erin in the business. Appetite has evolved from a couple of simple handbag designs and pillows to an extensive line of homewares and personal goods. Erin & Megan have now opened an Appetite shop in East Portland in Spring 2012 and they continue to sell their handmade goods in shops around the US and Canada and at indie craft markets.
