One of a number of self-initiated Workshop ventures, Standard Grit makes hand made, limited-edition textiles crafted in the south.
Sometimes we’re asked why on earth we started Standard Grit. Truth be told, there are a lot of reasons we found ourselves making textiles. To start, we love unique keepsakes with a sense of heritage, and the simple joy found in crafting things with our hands. On top of that we really like the idea of creating modern day heirlooms that people might keep in their families for generations. You can’t pass down an iphone to your grandson.
There are just as many things that inspire the personality of our textiles. The south has a rich, colorful tradition of storytelling that permeates every day life. There’s a unique vernacular specific to the south that’s odd, arcane and beautiful. Those eccentric sayings seem to lodge in the brain, and it makes sense to us to celebrate them.
We’re having too much fun to stop here. Along with our evolving line of seasonal flags, we plan to expand our offerings in the year to come.
