Cat Coven - Handmade Alternative Apparel In Brooklyn, New York
Cat Coven™ is a queer owned business in Brooklyn, New York providing you with eco-friendly, handmade alternative apparel. Cat Coven™ was started by me, artist Kjersti Faret, in 2013 while I was still in college studying illustration at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Inspired by the artists using the platform Etsy, I started selling projects I was making in my spare time on my own. In the start, I was producing a large assortment of design projects. These were small goods including handmade embroideries, zines, cards, and other miscellaneous items. I took a screen printing class at SVA as part of my curriculum. I fell in love with the process of screen printing by hand. I enjoyed the ability to put art on everyday items, especially clothing. Before long, I opened an Etsy shop of my own.
The site has grown from a small Etsy shop to a fully-independent online website. Cat Coven™ offers a large variety of hand printed alternative apparel these days. You can get hoodies, leggings, t-shirts, accessories and so much more. My signature pentacle cat comes on several different pieces. Despite this growth, Cat Coven™ still maintains its roots. I am still inspired by the occult, witchcraft, feminism, and (of course) cats. I still hand print clothing in small batches to ensure quality. I hire other local Brooklyn artists to help in high-volume times. Most of the apparel used is supplied by Bella+Canvas brand. They are an eco-friendly production company that is WRAP certified.
