hello there, it's nice to meet you.
designers: stephen loidolt & shauna alterio
we met in a kissing booth at an art school carnival. after graduating from cranbrook academy with MFAs in sculpture and printmaking, we began collaborating by making gifts for friends. over time our creative partnership has developed into multiple projects including: something's hiding in here, the original mustache on a stick, seed house stationers, and forage haberdashery.
our very first bow ties were made in the summer of 2010. the name FORAGE comes from our love of hunting for vintage and deadstock fabrics, which keeps our creative process fresh. each collection is hand crafted in limited numbers using cotton fabrics. our packaging is made in the US with recycled materials and hand printed by us.
