Portrait-Erin-Dollar copy.jpgMeet HelloSociety Pinterest influencer Erin Dollar from Los Angeles! She’s the founder, designer, and printmaker of Cotton & Flax, a collection of handmade, limited-edition textile goods. She designs, prints and sews all of her patterned home goods at her home studio in Pasadena. Erin lives with her boyfriend Zac and their calico cat Frida.

“[Frida] seems to be more popular than I am on Instagram – check out her hashtag, #fridapancakelongbody.”

Erin’s passion for design, printing, DIY, art and textiles has earned her over 651k Pinterest followers!
