Winter Water Factory

This by no means a new brand, Winter Water Factory has been around since 2002, but I recently had a look at their collection and I love their fascination for fabric and nice prints. I could do a piece on them to describe who they are and what drives them, but they do that so wonderfully themselves:

Fresh, bold and beautiful textile prints are the signature of the Winter Water Factory. Printed on soft organic cotton and fashioned into classic designs, these comfortable pieces are destined to become your little ones’ favorites! Winter Water Factory believes in creating high-quality products for a healthy planet. Every item is crafted from 100% certified organic cotton, and it’s all made in the USA—from the fabric to the final stitch.

Stefanie Lynen is a Brooklyn-based designer who draws inspiration from a variety of sources—from children's books to vintage wallpaper to envelope liners. In 2005, she rented a silk-screen studio and began exploring the possibilities of fabric design. The result has been a line of striking prints with just the right blend of bold graphics and whimsical illustrations.

Oh, and about that weird name. The original “Winterwasserfabrik” was founded in the early 1980s in Eschweiler, Germany, where Stefanie and her sister bottled melted snow and sold it to their parents as “winter water.” The tradition of creating fine products from all-natural resources continues here in Brooklyn. And who knows? We might even bottle some winter water again someday!
