Realizing there was a gap in the marketplace for stylish table linens that Janet would want to buy and entertain with, she decided to create her own.
Janet is a passionate textile artist with years of experience in weaving, spinning, dyeing, knitwear design & construction, and many other arts. A lifelong love of color and fiber and a business background in her early career, spun together into a bigger idea.
Yearning to design exquisite pieces, made with the best materials and the
highest quality construction, she decided to pursue a long-time dream of having a business. Shine Handmade was launched in her studio. Luxury tablecloths, beautiful designer table runners, and accessories are all made by hand. Made in the USA. Made with impeccable flair.
Janet made the first 600 table toppers by herself. In the early years, every piece was one-of-a-kind. The seamstress team still painstakingly pieces those fashion forward designs together today, and also creates limited edition series. No mass production, no watered down designs, just beautiful textiles for the home - your home.
