Travel inspires my print design. Case in point: Tofino, which, despite the Italian-sounding moniker, is named after the idyllic, end-of-the-road enclave on Vancouver Island in British Colombia. In this marine haven abound tide pools, which are filled with bivalves, starfish, and sea anemones. I have been lucky to go to this awe-inspiring place with my family many times. Though the label’s most popular pattern, it was almost cut from the first season. One I saw the first printed samples, however, I loved it—and it soon became a staple.
