The Full Story


Atelier Kate was born from the idea that living sustainably didn’t have to mean sacrificing style. Having started as an organic and fair trade fashion brand, over the years Atelier Kate has developed into much more and coined the phrase “holistic sustainability”. Now Atelier Kate has grown from that original iteration into a fashion and lifestyle brand that offers holistically sustainable goods handmade by our amazing group of artisans and designed by Kate. We have grown into a low waste, circular fashion business that remains focused on sustainable and ethical practices in everything we do.


Our Vision

Our goal is to empower those that we work with and who help bring our creative visions to life. Everyday we strive to do it a little better to bring our customers beautiful things that they can be proud to have in their wardrobe and their spaces. The business may expand but the vision remains.

Our Founder

 Katherine, Kate, Katie… She answer to them all!!

From a very young age, Kate was creative, constantly drawing, coloring & creating. Now she realizes that this is where her started my love affair with design started. 


Kate took this creativity & studied at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. During & after completing university, Kate began working for some major fashion brands & some smaller in places like San Francisco & Paris. After some time she began to become disheartened by all the waste & unfair practices she was witnessing.


That lead to a day, in 2014, over a beer with a friend in Paris the birth of Atelier Kate. Years later Atelier Kate has transformed but the principles remain. 

Outside of her business which takes most of her time these days much to her pleasure & thanks to you all! Kate also spends her time traveling & with her family including her fur baby, Stella, who has been there from the beginning. 

The experience of living abroad & her travels is where she finds her inspiration to create new collection & new spaces.
