A FRESH NEW FACE IN TEXTILE DESIGN
Hi! My name is Nikky Starrett. I’m the founder and designer of Pomp & Sass. My goal is to make it easy to shop for your new textile designs. That’s why I’ve gone the extra thousand miles to create this beautiful online shopping platform. When you log into the storefront you will save time by shopping my high value designs before instantly downloading your files. If ever you require assistance, I’m here to help! Feel free to connect with me at any time through the contact page.
When you buy from a small business an actual person does a little happy dance. That’s me! Then I share the love by donating a portion on every sale to a charity.
At POMP & SASS Textile Design Studio we create beautiful repeating designs. Our goals are to be a dynamic studio focused on saving our customers time. We distinguish ourselves with our online storefront that enables our customers to quickly make their purchase then instantly download their files.
We believe in the integrity of our original designs. Our culture is one of kindness, flexibility, professional development and optimism.
Compassion is key in all aspects of life. We actively support our local charity of choice by donating a portion of every design sold.
“A buyers job is getting harder every year. Shopping should be fun! So I’m bringing that back and making it more convenient and easy. ”
