Show Your Roots

Kristen Ley's letterpressed prints are inarguably pretty, but state flowers didn't just wake up that way. Back in the day, the National Floral Emblem Society lobbied for states to pick official flowers. Politics inspired Kristen's state flower print series, too. As First Lady, Lady Bird Johnson had millions of flowers planted in the nation's capital and along U.S. highways. "Where flowers bloom, so does hope," she said. Kristen came across her quote while traveling in Texas and was inspired to create this collection. The prints come with a small pouch of wildflower seeds, letterpressed with Ladybird's lovely words--and every seed is a vote for beauty. Handmade in Jackson, Mississippi.

Made in Mississippi

The first step Kristen Ley took toward being a professional artist was dressing up as an artist for her kindergarten career day. Both of her grandmothers were avid seamstresses and craft gurus and she grew up loving hands-on projects and anything that involved paint. Her grandmothers will always be a huge inspiration and she continues to honor them in her work. When her maker’s curiosity got the best of her, Kristen purchased a 1925 Chandler & Price press from Lexington, Kentucky and hauled it all the way back to Mississippi. With the press acquired, she decided to launch a letterpress studio which also serves as a sewing studio, design studio, woodworking studio, and anything creative that Kristen wants to try her hand at next. With the love of handmade, art, color and pattern, Kristen hopes to make her prints a reflection of her life, her love of family, and her favorite places in the world—one of them being Mississippi.
