Garbella specializes in hand screen-printed apparel, accessories, and home decor. From start to finish, all products are drawn, designed, and hand screen-printed by Amy Garbark in Pittsburgh, PA. She studied Fine Art at Alfred University and spent a few years as a Public school Art Teacher, followed by several years as a Program Director for an arts-based Non-profit. During this time, she set up a screen-printing studio to work on personal projects and quickly developed a passion for printing. Since 2008, Amy Garbark has been exhibiting at retail shows across the United States, developing new lines, and creating long-lasting relationships with customers and retail stores. Each design is original and drawn/designed by Garbark, then made into a film positive, burned to a screen, and hand-printed using water-based ink. All materials are sourced locally when possible and blank garments are all made in the USA or fair trade. Garbella is a small business that values hard work, social responsibility, and creative design. Garbella specializes in apparel and accessories that are easy to wear, fashionable with a casual attitude, and come in styles/designs for Women, Men, and Babies. Garbella also offers clocks that are hand screen-printed with original designs and some that are made with recycled bicycle chainrings.
All garbella goods are made with purpose and care.
When not working in the studio, Amy can be found connecting with youth and community through teaching, cooking, renovating her house, riding bikes, hanging with Steevo, and traveling to indie craft shows across the United States.
