okan arts online shop: a family affair
By Patricia Belyea
SEATTLE WA Even I can hardly believe it. The idea of an online shop for Okan Arts’s yukata cottons has become a reality.
Quilters and textile lovers all around the world can now access these remarkable fabrics from their homes. We’ve posted 75% of our inventory online and “opened our doors” for business.
The month we celebrated our 30th anniversary, Michael and I started building the e-shop. All that Michael cared about was functionality. And I cared passionately about the design of the interfaces.
Amazingly we’re still married after many challenging discussions and countless iterations.
As a university student, Victoria worked in the Special Collections department of the campus library. She brings her skills in handling archival treasures and her enthusiasm for yukata cottons to the job. Plus, Victoria is a real people-person who enjoys delivering delight to others.
