Organic and recycled homegoods and accessories, hand printed in Chicago!
It started with a love for t-shirts and making my own via puffy paints and iron-on transfers. I mean who doesn't love a white sweat suit with chicks and bunnies outlined in pastel purple?
Many, many years later, it morphed into my moving to Chicago, finding local places that teach screen printing, taking several beginners classes and then going out on my own to build out a studio in my basement.
From that, Earth Cadets was born. A company committed to creating unique and hand printed home goods, accessories and clothing while keeping a commitment to maintain and respect our environment.
Earth Cadets was born December 2008 and having worked on EC nights and weekends while maintaining a full-time corporate job, I worked up the nerve to take on my passion full time, October 2011. So far, I couldn't be happier with this decision and am so looking forward to learning and growing as a printer and small business owner.
