Traditional doesn't mean boring. Southern doesn't mean country.
Southern Creed started by accident or fate, depending on how you look at it. Although a graphic designer by degree I had not been working in the field for years, but one day in 2013 made a drawing of snoballs with watercolor touches for fun. I thought if four of them were cute, then dozens of them would be adorable. I drew more, scanned the image, and repeated it to make a pattern. Fabric came to mind...then ribbon...and all the things I could make out of them.
After that first design I thought about all the inspiration I could gather from the South. The next few weeks I made more patterns than any time since. I did bacon, cotton, catfish, poboys, okra, and I kept a list for those I wanted to create in the future. That's when I realized I could have more than a hobby; I could have a business.
Presently there are two total employees if you count the dog. In the fall of 2016 I was awarded a grant from MEMShop and Communities Unlimited to open a pop up retail location in the South Main Arts District in Memphis, Tennessee. The store was open through May of 2017 and while I don't have plans to open another store at the moment, I am certainly still in business. You can order directly from the web site or catch us at different trunk shows around Memphis, New Orleans, Oxford, and elsewhere.
