OUR STORY

Our Mission

We believe that some of the best moments are shared in the home and around the table.  Epic dinner parties, full of storytelling and deep belly laughs.  Deep conversations on that old, comfy couch.  Introducing friends, new and old, over homemade cocktails or that quiet cup of tea at the end of the day.  Opening gifts on special holidays and occasions.  These are the everyday memories that we want to cherish.

Our products are handcrafted and highly functional, screen-printed, and made of materials sourced from the US and Europe.  We partner with a small, family-run sewing shop in rural Pennsylvania for all our textile cutting and sewing.  Our goods are printed by hand in our Johnson City, TN studio by the help of Bonnie and other local artists.  

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 17,000 meals since 2015.  

Based in Johnson City, Tenn.


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 wild toddler, Magnolia Scout.  Their pitbull rescue, Wythe, is often at her feet.
