Join co-founder Stephen Fraser for the story of Spoonflower, a digital textile printing company. Before launching custom wallpaper, gift wrap and decals, Spoonflower was the first company to make it possible for individuals to create, print and sell their own fabric designs. Founded in May 2008 by two Internet geeks who had crafty wives but knew nothing about textiles, Spoonflower's community now numbers around 1,000,000 individuals who use their own fabric to make curtains, quilts, clothes, bags, furniture, dolls, pillows, framed artwork, costumes, banners and more.
Spoonflower's marketplace offers the largest collection of independent fabric designers in the world. The site has been mentioned in the New York Times, Associated Press, the Wall Street Journal, Better Homes & Gardens, Vogue, Martha Stewart Weddings, CRAFT, ApartmentTherapy, and many other terrific publications and blogs.
