ABOUT NATALIE WASHUTA
Inspired by her passion to support local farming, Natalie began making the "I Love Local Farmer" t-shirts for friends, family and fellow CSA members in 2006. The first t-shirt started as a screen-printing project when she was studying fashion design at FIT. “I was looking for a way to bring attention to farmers and all they have to offer the community. I figured they don’t have a lot of money to spend on advertising so maybe I could help do it for them. Whenever I wear one of these tees I receive positive comments and it opens a discussion about local farming.”
Natalie is also sweater designer for a very well-known company we can't name (and fashion stylist) and lives in Brooklyn.
