Olivia Christensen is the founder and artist behind klæde. Olivia studied visual communications and design in San Francisco, and there, established klæde as a way to express her love for timeless fashion and color. Olivia paints each kerchief design by hand. She designs and creates her prints with watercolor and acrylic paints, which are scanned and printed on a custom fabric blend.
Olivia currently designs and runs klæde, from her home studio in Seattle, Washington. Her husband, Scott, lovingly helps with the business (and taxes). The Danish word klæde means cloth. Klæde's custom cloth (a silk/cotton blend) perfectly combines the soft, smooth textures of silk with the breathable fibers of cotton.
