Our Story

Based in Austin, Texas Katie Kime is a women owned and operated emerging lifestyle brand of fashion, furniture, and accessories inspired by Katie’s own spirited approach to dressing both herself and her home.

In 2006, during her senior year at Duke, Katie hosted her first trunk show of reclaimed furniture, handmade frames out of vintage books, and custom note sets. Upon graduation she was sure that finding a way to design and manufacture not just one line, but many lines, was her calling. And so she set out on an ever-evolving journey of doing just that.

In January of 2014, Katie Kime's online store opened for business and later that year Katie partnered with Natalie Moore and set her eye on opening her first brick and mortar.  

In 2015, Katie Kime opened our flagship store in the heart of downtown Austin and we are proud to have customers from all over the world. We have been featured in Lonny, Domino, Country Living, and most recently a 14 page spread in HGTV Magazine. Glitter guide named us one of "Five start-ups you should know about" and Vogue called our flagship a "Must-See New Destination".
