About Me

Hey Friend!

With warm, intention, and lots of love for Lithuanian linen, I created Noisy Forest.  Linen fabric, with its connectedness to the earth, is reminiscent of days when textiles were utilized and not just put away for special occasions.  I believe in authenticity and natural beauty which is why I design and source linen goods that allow the fabric’s beautiful texture convey what’s in our hearts… and to experience this appreciation each day.  Use your linens!

As a maker/sewist raised in New York with my mother, aunts and grandmothers who all crafted clothing (out of need), I was destined to learn sewing as a child. I started Noisy Forest with a passion for constructing practical linen goods created in a way that respect humanity and the environment.  I’m an avid believer that we can all shift to more thoughtful ways in endorsing sustainability as we continue to move towards purposeful buying. 

By sourcing materials from environmentally and socially responsible suppliers,  together we help support families improve their standards of living.  We all know that the global impact of buying goods produced by underpaid workers in a poorly managed factory is understated.

So, about the name "Noisy Forest" you might ask?  My Lithuanian great grandparents shared about being peasant farmers near heavily wooded pastures.  Like most immigrants in the early 1900s, they came to America with nothing and felt pretty darned blessed for what little they attained. I grew up from a family of dairy farmers and bee keepers surrounded by beautiful sweeping pines. My mother so enjoyed the beauty in nature, too, wherever she traveled. And, even my artist father shared his fondness for illustrating scenes with trees.  With all these meaningful memories - it just felt like the "Noisy Forest" was telling me its name.  

I am committed to offering you high quality products made with integrity - keeping an open mind (and heart) to build your trust in this marketplace.
