Hi, I am Carrie, creator and designer of Rusterior.

 I started this company with fifty dollars and a dream. When I started my creative journey I made anything and everything I could get my hands on. I crafted and sewed and stamped my little heart out but had always been drawn to printing. I learned how to screen print at a small local studio and bought a few minor supplies, made myself a recycled tee shirt press out of an old church door and got to work. I was totally hooked on screen printing and have never looked back.

I started with a few designs and supplies and have grown my tiny dream into a full blown company. I want to make functional cool clothes and goods you want to have in your life and home. A simplified life is something I strive for and I'm doing my best to become unbusy. I am so proud to hand print everything in my shop on that same press I started with.  This shop is a piece of me that I get to share with the world. 

Our beautiful family and the impact it has had on me and my company is what keeps me motivated. 

I am married to the best woman in the world. She is patient, smart and beautiful.  We adopted three of the raddest kids in the whole world out of foster care that turned our life into something amazing. We legit went from 0-3 children in 3 seconds. They have taught me so much about love and life and patience, so much patience.  They inspire everything I do within the company . Our life on three acres is full of happy kiddos, bare feet, coffee and chaos and I wouldn't have it any other way.
