Gretchen Hollingsworth is a veteran of the gift industry. In 1996, she founded Paddywax—an internationally iconic candle company—from her kitchen. As founder and creative director, she designed products for retail behemoths Whole Foods, Urban Outfitters, West Elm, Crate and Barrel and Target. After 20 years in the candle business, it was time for a new creative venture.
INK+ALLOY was formed to celebrate connectivity. In a world that can feel so large and impersonal, hand crafted pieces create bridges between trends that make you feel good and style that does good. We're happy to have you along for the ride!
