Candace has a love of fabrics and patterns, having graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in textiles. She ran a wedding dress design company, Caden Couture, prior to establishing Moss & Marsh. When her daughter was born, Candace saw the need for multi-functional products that would help with the day-to-day tasks of caring for babies.
“Making things for people is how I show love and creating functional items from nothing is complete satisfaction for me,” Candace said. Those items include burp cloths, swaddlers, bandana bibs with grommets for attaching ever-elusive pacifiers, and bath aprons for the splish-splashiest of little ones.
Textures and patterns that occur in nature are the inspiration for Moss & Marsh’s designs. These are not kiddie-looking or cartoony patterns; Candace’s products feature sea grass, crustaceans, and loggerhead sea turtles, all hand-screened on Kona cotton and sewn by Candace and her employee, Jami.
Candace is generous with blog space on the Moss & Marsh website, providing a forum for women to write about parenting-related topics, and even offering a tutorial on printing your own designs at home.
Right now, Moss & Marsh is available online (including via Amazon Handmade) and at retailers throughout eastern Georgia, as well as at boutique locations in South Carolina, New York, Alaska, Michigan, Maine, California, and Kentucky.
