OUR STORY

Our Story

We believe that some of the best moments are shared in the home.  Epic dinner parties around a big table, full of storytelling and deep belly laughs.  Deep conversations on that old, comfy couch.  Introducing friends, new and old, over homemade cocktails.  Opening gifts on special holidays and occasions.

BKS is a line of USA-made home linens and printed papers aiming to foster memories around the table, a thankful home, and a gift-giving spirit.  Products are handcrafted and highly functional, screen-printed, and made of materials sourced from the US and Europe.  With every purchase, a 5-meal donation is made to Feeding America, a nonprofit that provides meals to those in need, so that more folks can find enjoyment around their table and at home.  Thanks to your purchases, we have donated over 11,000 meals since 2015.  Based in Johnson City, TN.

 

About Bonnie

Bonnie Kaye Whitfield is a floral-lovin', vintage-junkie, cocktail-slingin' designer based out of Johnson City, TN (yes, you know it - from that Old Crow Medicine Show song!).  She grew up with casserole-filled Sundays and her parents hosting dinner parties nearly every week in the outskirts of Atlanta. Cooking and conversation were commonplace.  She discovered her love of printmaking one day in the studio at the University of Georgia and has been covered in ink ever since.  She earned her MFA in Printmaking from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, and next called Philadelphia home, where she founded Bonnie Kaye Studio in 2014.  In 2016, Bonnie and her husband decided to return to their southern roots and moved to the mountains of East Tennessee, where you can find Bonnie printing in an 1908 house and caring for their new baby girl, Magnolia Scout.  Their pitbull rescue, Wythe, is often at her feet.
