Beenanza Design is a studio in Burlington, Vermont that was established solely for the love of design & pattern by Bethany Andrews-Nichols. With over 12 years of graphic design experience, Bethany specializes in print & pattern design with a focus in block printing.
Having traveled to Jaipur, India to study the craft, she gained a deeper appreciation for this ancient art, and is now on a mission to bring this slow fashion movement to Vermont. She decided to begin with a backpack fulled designed in her little studio here in Burlington. She is collaborating with a block printing cooperative of artisans in Bagru, India who will blockprint her designs by hand onto canvas and assemble the bag. Now, she needs help funding that first order of bags to start getting them to market.
She is also in the early stages of a plan that will donate a portion of the proceeds from each bag back to these communities in India to fund the purchase & installation of household water filtration systems.
