Wisdom comes in all forms, and we are dedicated to learning. We'd like to recognize more people here in time. For now, we are sending a MAGNITUDE OF GRATITUDE to Katie and Amy Carson of Bitters Co.
Focusing on heritage crafts with the efficient use of renewable resources or recycled materials, Katie and Amy showed Catherine that the goal of small business can be "to be friends for real" with artists and customers alike while caring for the environment.
Ethical origin stories for objects do exist. Good design is. It's all about people to people, dude.
Thanks, Katie and Amy. Twelve years later, your heartening wisdom continues to be a guiding inspiration. We are grateful to have you as friends and teachers in this life!
