An artist, maker, and former preschool teacher, Kate Leibrand is the creative force behind TWEE - a women owned and operated maker's studio specializing in handmade, small batch sidewalk chalk; showcasing the ordinary in extraordinary ways.
The name TWEE stems from Kate's art school critiques; after repeatedly being told her work was too “twee” or “cute” she began to wonder - What was so wrong with that? Instead of changing her aesthetic, Kate embraced it.
All TWEE products are designed to perfectly fit little ones’ hands, helping to increase grip strength and fine motor skills while encouraging creative play and imaginative making.
In a time where screens and computers are part of everyday existence, TWEE handmade sidewalk chalk provides the much-needed break for children to take a step back, to make believe, to share experiences with friends and to create their very own chalk masterpieces.
What started as a project in her kitchen has expanded into a business whose products are carried all over the world.
