Hey everyone! I’m so excited about being a part of the Supermarket family, thanks for having me! Over the next few days, stay tuned for more new products being uploaded to the store.

If you don’t know, here’s a little bit about me:
I’m a self-taught designer who tries to find ways of working across many different media, including designing t-shirts pillows and jewelry, painting, drawing, and photography. Two String Jane was started to bring colorful, crafty and good quality clothing to everyone. When it comes to fashion, I focus on making designs that are wearable, easy to pair with and bold… playfully fun, really, since that’s what I think life’s all about!

A bit about my creative process:
I draw my influences from the everyday simple things and try to translate them into wearable pop art. I start out by sketching a design on paper. Designs are then hand cut into stencils and from there I let the design speak to its own colors. I believe stenciling gives much richer textures and lends itself to more creativity.

The dyeing process:
My original “Splash Dye ” technique creates vibrant splashes of color while staying environmentally friendly and more colorfast than traditional dyeing. It’s a modern interpretation of traditional tie dyeing which allows for more free-form patterns to emerge.

Because all my garments are completely hand stenciled, painted and dyed from scratch with every order I can give them the attention they need. Each of my shirts are slightly different and have the mark of the hand.

Love, Alyssa
