Kalen and Astrid founded Upstate in 2010 based on a mutual love of making things. They wanted to create one of a kind pieces of wearable art, and began doing so using dye techniques based on Japanese shibori. Since then, Upstate has expanded their collections by innovating new dye techniques and incorporating paints and digital prints designed in their New York studio.
