About the Artist

Kris Ruff has a passion for color and pattern. Influenced by Scandinavian modern style and inspired by nature, she uses lively linework and simple shapes to create playful, energetic designs that are as modern as they are timeless. 

Kris lives and works in Minneapolis, MN and left her graphic design job in 2000 to pursue a dream of creating her own products. She started with a line of skydiving t-shirts (she’s been a skydiver for 30+ years) and then grew her business into a full lifestyle brand. Today her products span categories from home goods, fabric, and stationery, to gifts, pet products, and luggage. Her mission is to create functional products that encourage us to have fun with color and pattern, bringing a little joy into our everyday lives.
