M.F.I.S. Graduate Student Receives "Spoonflower Student Project" Grant
Kent State Fashion School Master of Fashion Industry Studies graduate student, Michelle Park, was recently awarded a grant from the Spoonflower Student Project.
The Spoonflower grant supports the artistic pursuits of a select group of full-time undergraduate and graduate students worldwide and provides grants of up $1,000 in Spoonflower credit allowing the recipient to design their own digital prints or wallpaper for student projects and research.
The first company of its kind, Spoonflower was launched in 2008 in Durham, N.C., on a dream of empowering the individual to create on-demand, custom-designed textiles.
The Spoonflower community has since grown to over 3.5 million individuals who use their own designs and our Marketplace to make curtains, quilts, clothes, bags, furniture, dolls, pillows, framed artwork, costumes, banners and much, much more. Spoonflower’s digital print process uses eco-friendly, water-based pigment inks and dyes which produce very little waste. And with over 750,000 designs (plus more added every day), the Spoonflower Marketplace is the largest collection of independent designers in the world.
