Episode #45: Heather Moore of Skinny LaMinx

March 16th, 2015 · Comments

On today’s episode of the Craft Industry Alliance podcast we're talking about how an indie designer can create a worldwide wholesale textile business while keeping production small scale and local with my guest, Heather Moore of Skinny LaMinx.

When Heather started experimenting with screenprinting in her spare time in 2007 she had no idea that just a few years later she'd have a shop in Cape Town, nine employees, and a wholesale business sending her fabrics, cushions, housewares, and more all around the world.

Heather also recommends some great stuff she's enjoying right now.
