Happy Monday everyone! 

Today, I am honored to have the fabulous girls of Mimi & Muff as the second post in my new Monday Mavens series. 
Sara and Molly, two dear friends of mine, have combined their artistic talents, love of coastal climates, and bubbly personalities to create a gorgeous line of textiles and prints that have been produced into phone cases, beach bags, sarongs, tunics, and now stationary.

I am delighted to share more of their amazing line today!

The girls recently moved into their own office space in Atlanta and shared a few peeks into their showroom for you guys to see! 
I could hang out here all day!!! 



What led you two to begin your business together?

Sara: Molly and I have always wanted to have a creative business together!  My background is in Fabric Design, and Molly’s is in Fashion.  Molly and could not compete with “high fashion”, and we also wanted to create something more cohesive to our lifestyle.  We both love the beach, so a resort line was perfect! 

What inspires you to create? Do you have any favorite textiles? 

Sara: I love Henri Matisse right now!  He has an exhibit, The Cut-Outs, opening October 12th at the MOMA.  We are dying to go!  I also loves Marimekko.  Big, bold, colorful patterns are my favorite to design!  I never appreciated the Marimekko look until I studied abroad in Japan, the number 1 country for fabric design.

Molly:  I worked for Trina Turk’s corporate office in New York.  Trina Turk’s business sense and style has has rubbed off on Mimi and Muff because of my experience there.  I love working a market!  I also lived in Charleston, where beach clothes count for half your wardrobe.  My knowledge in beach wear helped us design our patterns for production.
