Beyond Her is an independent design company, using original art and artisan processes to create limited editions of collectible home goods, fashion accessories and office supplies.
Artist and designer Paule Hewlett, a citizen of Houston for 40 years, hails from Utah, where she learned pioneer crafts at an early age. While working as a freelance marketing writer, she continued to produce bits of art and sundry crafts.
In 2005 Beyond Her was born, originally as a stationery line. Once Paule learned the silk screening process in 2008, the Beyond Her universe quickly expanded into all kinds of natural textiles. She uses pen and ink to capture organic objects such as plants and animals, insects and found objects in a clean, modern style. Naturally, many of the images are native to Texas.
Paule and husband Michael screen-print the fabrics in a studio in La Grange, TX, using eco-friendly inks that maintain a signature soft hand. Dyeing, sewing and packaging are done primarily in-house. It’s a true cottage industry.
