About WomanMade Products
WomanMade Products began as a t-shirt screen-printing company on Long Island, New York in 1976. After designing and printing my first t-shirt for a friend’s birthday present, other friends encouraged me to create more shirts designed for them. While creating more designs, it became clear that there was a real need for feminist women-oriented and empowering t-shirt designs, so I started WomanMade Products.
As I began selling my t-shirts to women’s festivals and conferences, I met other fine craftswomen who were creating women’s art and women’s culture through many other mediums, from pottery to jewelry, candle making to metal sculpting. After relocating my business in 1991 to Seneca Falls, NY, I gathered together this fine collection of women’s art and craft under one roof and opened my retail store.
I am thrilled that WomanMade Products has found a home in Seneca Falls, home to Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Amelia Bloomer and the first women’s newspaper “The Lily.” Seneca Falls is also the location of the first convention for women’s rights in 1848, the Women’s Rights National Historical Park and the National Women’s Hall of Fame. For WomanMade Products, Seneca Falls is a feminist address for a feminist business.
