Rachel Mulder is the Midwestern daughter of two lifelong factory workers and an artist living and working in Portland, Oregon, where she relocated in 2009 after earning her BFA in Printmaking from MIAD. Her background in printmaking, namely etching, unearthed her compulsion to work in a way that precipitates irrevocable mistakes.
"There is something so special in the error of the human hand - a line etched in steel or a mark that cannot be erased - that I enjoy while conversely and fretfully attempting to attain perfection."

$10 from every Rachel Mulder scarf sold is donated directly to Public Annex - an organization in Portland that works to break down systemic barriers that prohibit marginalized populations from inclusivity by building a community around accessible farming and art programming for people with developmental disabilities.
"Being a part of Public Annex is a great privilege. I can't imagine my life without the talented and wonderful people I've met, and I am so proud and honored to have another way to give a little more back to this community that I cherish so much!"
