Rectangle Designs offers hand-screenprinted apparel and accessories produced by hand in Minneapolis, MN. Each piece in the line combines original botanical motifs with beautiful offbeat color. The line includes t-shirts, dresses and accessories.
In 2004 Sarah Nassif launched Rectangle out of her desire to bring the natural world into everyday life. Trained in both botany and fine art, Sarah has united the two in her original motifs: a modern take on leaves, prairie flora, and trees developed directly from her photographs taken throughout the Midwest and on her travels.
Sarah is committed to producing her designs in a socially and environmentally sensible manner. She sews some products herself and also works with local craftspeople to create her accessories. Only phthalate-free and PVC-free waterbased inks are used for printing.
Sarah was born in Alaska, grew up in Oregon and has lived in the Twin Cities since 2000. She has studied art and photography in Colorado and botany in Ireland and the Pacific Northwest. Textiles have always been her medium of choice, and environmental themes have featured strongly in all of her work.
