Red Umbrella Designs was founded in 2012 by illustrator and graphic designer Baylie Peplow. After graduating with a degree in architecture and then teaching in a Montessori classroom, Baylie now spends her time creating new designs, running the business, and raising up a little family with her husband in the Methow Valley, WA.
It is the goal of Red Umbrella to inspire humans to seek beauty, keep hope, and give kindness. As an artist, business owner, and person on this planet, Baylie wants to help individuals feel connected to the natural world and one another, to create down-to-earth treasures that remind us that we are part of something bigger than ourselves, and to infuse our every day lives with playfulness, imperfection, and down-to-earth meaning.
Whenever possible, Red Umbrella Design's products are sourced and printed locally in the Pacific Northwest, using recycled content (all our paper products are printed on 100% recycled content), environmentally friendly processes and small family owned businesses.
