Sprinkles and Rainbows

In "It Happened One Night," Clark Gable gave an indelible lesson in how a donut and a cup of coffee ought to come together, via a quick dunk. But designer Christine Schmidt's gilded cloisonné coffee and donut are fun finery, not a feast. They'll always be a pair, but dunk, they will never do—unless they're worn in the pool. Made in California.

“I make things that I want. I have an idea and I figure out how to make it.”

Christine Schmidt's art career began in primary school when she won a bike in the local grocer's coloring contest (it was red and had ten whole speeds!) After a youth spent on the plains of Kansas City and art school in Washington D.C., she and her boyfriend, Evan, moved west to a little place perched atop windy Bernal Hill in San Francisco. Fueled by too much black tea and public radio shows, she spent nights creating hand-printed cards and gifts. Seeking out local suppliers and working with fine, earth-loving materials, she began honing her line of wares. In 2007, after steeling her nerves, Christine took a box of her goods to some local stores...they placed orders, and Yellow Owl Workshop was born.

Christine's workshop now bustles with a team of hard-working ladies in a sunny Mission district studio. Though it's grown, the workshop's original values of attention to detail, ecological awareness, and premium, American-made materials are evident in every product.
