Rebecca and Karen Garcia

dirtsa is the creation of mother-and-daughter team Karen and Rebecca Garcia. We began creating custom textile goods as an outgrowth of our love of fabric, colors, and patterns. Mom Karen has many years of sewing experience, creating apparel and home decorating projects and teaching students to create their own beautiful quilts and handiwork. She is a top-notch cook, loves to read, and dabbles in many crafts, including basketry, beading, and stenciling, to name just a few.

Rebecca loves form and design in addition to color and pattern. She studied American arts and material at Yale University and earned a master’s degree in American decorative arts at the Winterthur Museum. Her studies have informed both her personal and professional creative designs, which can be viewed at
