Wren Willow (say that 3 times fast!)

WrenWillow is a great little shop on Etsy, that produces 100% organic TShirts, that are silk screen printed with custom illustrations and then hand dyed for that one of a kind hand made t-shirt look.

Marla is the shop owner and creator. She hand dyes and screen prints her t shirts, using her own original artwork. She works in small limited batches and strives to work in as many earth and kid friendly ways as possible. She lives in the Hudson Valley in N.Y., in an apartment over a storage unit office with her daughter, husband and a lovable bedlington terrier. She's quick to point out that " I love our apartment though it is a bit odd to be surrounded with storage units as far as the eye can see. We like to call it zombie fortress zero because we are up high, surrounded by a gate and have no neighbors". Spooky huh?

The name Wren Willow comes from her 2 year old daughter, named Wren Willow. She is the driving force of creativity and is the never ending inspiration behind her work, as well as her daily life.

Besides the super cute t's for adults, kids and tots, Marla has also created a line of doggy t's. The doggy t's are a 100% ribbed cotton black sleeveless tank top and come in a variety of sizes, for small to large pups!

WrenWillow has been an Esty member since 2008. Aside from her Esty shop, Marla is a teacher and she works in New York City and commutes via a train. She claims it's hard to keep it all balanced and not get burnt out, so she sleeps on the train. Marla says she was a creative kid growing up and was considered the class artist. She loved drawing and says it is amazing to witness how artistic her daughter is. Guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree!
