A Lake Highlands mom and block printed linen designer created Mended in 2020. Now she’s celebrating the opening of the brand’s first showroom.
Mallory Martin recently opened the Mended showroom at The Village in partnership with Lauren Garrity, who serves as director of creative and communications, to help economically empower survivors of modern-day slavery.
The brand’s vision is to “reduce the vulnerability of more and more survivors of modern-day slavery each year through the production and sales of high-quality and beautiful home goods products made by the survivors,” according to the Mended website.
Then, they’re trained in hand block printing hand goods that are exported from their country to the United States. Garrity and her team create the designs and transfer them to the survivors to print on textiles.
Mended’s products include tea towels, napkins, table cloths, bandanas and more.
The storefront is open 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. Monday through Friday at 5677 Village Glen Drive, Suite 12102. For more information, email email@example.com.
