Who they are:
Organic. Ethical and Sustainable. Dreamers. Eco-Friendly. Entrepreneurs.
What they do:
Winter Water Factory is a Brooklyn-based design and manufacturing company specializing in screen printed textiles and organic kids’ clothing. Fresh, bold, and beautiful textile prints are the signature of Winter Water Factory.
The company is the brainchild of Stefanie Lynen and her husband Todd Warnock. Lynen, the creative force behind the company and its compelling prints and designs, is a self-taught designer who draws inspiration from a variety of sources—from children’s books to vintage wallpaper to envelope liners.
She came to New York in 1999 from Germany after completing medical school. Starting out as a freelance crafter, Lynen fell in love with product design and quickly learned everything she could about it. 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.
Why we love them:
Not only do they make beautiful baby and kid’s clothing, they believe in creating high-quality products for a healthy planet.
Healthy. Planet. We are all over that with our hearts…thump thump.
Every item is crafted from 100% organic cotton and is made in the USA —from the fabric to the final stitch.
