sutherland weaving

Craft to craft.
Weave to letterpress.

Sutherland Weaving is a humble custom weaving house in South Carolina run by two ladies sharing the craft of weaving. We haven't met but somehow while printing these cards, I was touched to be able to print these cards for someone who is also keeping alive a craft of the past - theirs weaving and mine letterpress printing.

They will most likely receive their cards sometime today. I can almost picture Barb of Sutherland touching the cards and rubbing her hand over the text. Her craft too, is tactile will attention to detail. She'll know. She'll understand. This is why I've enjoyed creating these cards for Sutherland.

fried chicken meets letterpress

It's not everyday that one of LA's buzzing fried chicken joints asks you to do letterpress business cards. Fried chicken for business cards almost sounds fair, right. It seemed more convincing after tasting their Japanese twist on a familiar and comforting food especially when coupled with their sides like mac-n-cheese, curry creamed corn, shishito peppers and a pint of craft beer. 

Take a bite and taste for yourself.
