We are Kei Tsuzuki and Molly Luethi -- two friends, mothers, and printers living in the high desert of Albuquerque, New Mexico. We founded Kei & Molly Textiles, LLC in 2010 to create both a printing studio dedicated to producing artisan-quality fabric goods as well as a vehicle to develop good jobs in our community.
We design all our images ourselves, often inspired by what we see in New Mexico as well as by our individual backgrounds -- Kei is Japanese but grew up in Montréal; Molly is Swiss American with a Japanese husband. Our product line includes kitchen linens and home & fashion accessories.
Supporting our community means a lot to us, and it's the reason we started this business in the first place! We are located near the International District of Albuquerque, an area home to many of the refugees and recent immigrants to our city. Vibrant with culture, it is nonetheless one of Albuquerque's pockets of poverty. We are committed to creating good jobs in this area, and work with refugee resettlement programs to find many of our employees. We provide on-the-job training, health and education benefits, flexible hours, and, we hope, a great place to work!
