Kristen mentioned that one of her designs was inspired by
celebrated textile company, Souleiado, which is the home of the
famous Provencal printed fabrics that are pervasive in the south
of France. "Tarascon is home to the Souleido's workshop and
company and I always feel fortunate that I can drop in by and
see its bright intricate designs when I'm in the town."
