A few months ago I was looking for fabric to make my three year old a blanket, I wanted it to have little kids who looked like her and to be bright and happy. I searched everywhere and came up with nothing, finally I decided to use my graphic design skill and create my own fabric line. The blanket came out nice, and she truly loved seeing kids who looked like her. My daughter is from Haiti and when we become a bi-racial family I became acutely aware that there is a real lack of products on the market that represent families that look like mine, and for that matter any families that represent the modern American family. Two moms, two papas, single parents, single adoptive parents, adoptive families, bi and tri racial families. I graduated with a B.A. in graphic design and culture studies, my actual thesis was on how design and art can positively influence culture, with this line I hope that in a tiny way I can make a positive difference and offer support to families like mine. With this fabric line I hope to show what the current American family looks like in 2010 and offer an sense of inclusiveness to all the families who are changing the idea of a “Normal Family“. We are normal, we are all unique and what we all have in common is the experience of love and togetherness, the experience of being a family.
