Natty Paint has been featured on the home page of Women Entrepreneur, an offshoot of Entrepreneur magazine. The article examines our guerrilla marketing strategies to get our product in the hands of celebrities such as Lucy Liu and Animal Collective.

We just finished whipping out shirts for The Dogwood, a restaurant located in our neck of the woods, Hampden! The Dogwood specializes in sustainable American cuisine. The shirts are the new uniform of the servers and bussers, and are also on sale for ONLY $20. We dropped them off yesterday and already a bunch have sold. Stop in ASAP to grab a bite to eat and a shirt.
Jesse and Emily Li Mandri (owner/designer of Natty Paint) found inspiration for the shoot from vintage clothes.
Sherell Rowe is wearing a one of a kind bathing suit that has been altered to make a low neckline. The one piece is adorned with a vintage brooch and the shoulder pieces were constructed from vintage sequins as well.
Tim Coburn was the photographer for the photo shoot. He did an amazing job making Sherell Rowe look stunning in her vintage bathing suit.
I hope you enjoyed our booth at Hopkins’ Spring Fair despite the rain and grey gloom..
But come rain or shine…
THE NATTY PAINT LAUNCH PARTY IS THIS SATURDAY MAY 1! We are so excited and hope you are too! Bring your friends! Pets! Fellow artists! Check the blog post below for more info and get ready to party!
Alright, so lately, we’ve been talking about our visits to New York City, to LA, San Fran, Philly, Virginia…
Let’s just say we’ve been globetrotting. And it’s been great. Not only have we been able to check out each city’s distinct (and evolving) hipster scene, eat lots of ice cream, and generally hang out, we also succeeded in selling Natty Paint to a number of boutiques!
You may be wondering: What city? We may have an answer: New York City. On Wednesday we are dropping off clothing at AuH20 Recycled Clothing Store in the East Village, and Nydesignroom, an uber hip fashion and furniture store in Williamsburg (If you need to procrastinate, sift through Nydesignroom’s glowing review in New York Mag here)
Both stores are eco-friendly and serve up heaping portions of style with a pinch of art. Delicious.
Spring is just around the corner! The very mention of Spring just oozes delightful thoughts of flowers, 75 degree days, chirping birds, fresh-squeezed happiness, and of course, Natty paint’s participation in Spring Fairs!
So far, we are planning on participating in Johns Hopkins’ Spring Fair April 23-25, and Towson University’s reputed Towsontown Spring Festival May 1st and May 2nd! We will be selling our blossoming (both literally and figuratively) items of clothing: so be sure to visit us at our booth and pick up some of our lively tees!
(Did I mention the Hopkins Spring Fair sells everything edible from candy apples to Jamaican jerk chicken? Incentive? Yes please.)
Check out our etsy. All t-shirts have been reduced to $15 (originally $28) and all winter apparel has been reduced 40-50%. We are also starting to put up the spring collection!
We’ll be printing the t-shirt for Effervescent Collective’s rendition of Dirty Dancing.
Here is the design:
The shirts will be on sale at the fundraiser Friday Feb 12, 9 PM at Load of Fun.
Natty Paint will also be there selling vintage & tees!
Natty Paint is gaining both local and broad recognition via the online community. And should we be surprised? After our new lookbook and lovely photoshoot we can only assume more blog-coverage is soon to come!
