About Patch Design Studio
Patch is a small Asheville, NC based design studio that creates organic textiles for the home and babies that are designed, grown, printed and sewn in the USA. Our vibrant prints are created by founder and designer, Heather Adcock, as hand carved block prints that are inspired by her southern roots and life in the Appalachians. The production of our products occurs within 70 miles of our Asheville studio from weaving the fabric to sewing and hand screen printing each piece. We are proud to support organic farming in the USA and the revival of the once thriving Carolina textile industry.
Our current Fall/Winter line includes organic kitchen towels, cloth napkin sets, baby
oneises and toddler shirts. In additon we are offering a limited selection of hand printed pillows that are made in the Carolinas from recycled organic cotton and hemp fabric.
Growing up on Sullivan’s Island, off the coast of Charleston South Carolina, Heather
remembers a childhood full of sewing projects, sailing, vegetable gardens, and travel with her family. As an adult, she journeyed out west, studying environmental design in Boulder and exploring the vibrant culture of San Francisco. Full of inspiration but a bit homesick, she eventually made her way back to the South to earn a master’s degree in industrial design at SCAD in Savannah, GA. It was here under the spanish moss that she fell in love with textiles and started to incorporate this new passion into her design work.
In 2010 Heather found herself in love with a Tennessee boy and moved to Chattanooga where she started Patch Design Studio.
What began as a small craft fair operation, soon became a thriving wholesale business and she was off to exhibit at the New York Gift Fair in 2012. She quickly landed a variety of wholesale clients across the U.S. and abroad who had an eye for sustainable handmade products.
In 2013, she moved to Asheville, North Carolina, where the business is based today. She and her husband, Brandan (the TN boy) live with their son and onesie model, Rowan, and their two scruffy terriers. In this unique mountain town, Patch Design Studio is surrounded by natural beauty, a strong local food scene and a vibrant creative community, all of which continue to support and inspire Heather’s work.
