OUR FOUNDERI’m Christen; mom, wife, designer & entrepreneur behind Ten & Co. I have two little humans, 3 and 5 years old that keep me constantly on my toes but are also a daily reminder to work hard and set a good example. I have always been passionate about design and completed degrees in business and interior design to get started in the industry. With a ton of support from my husband I struck out on my own and started my own interior design business in 2009. Over the years, I have also discovered my love for textile design, which lead to learning how to screen print by hand and feeling the need to pursue the medium further. Ten & Co. was born in 2013, along with my son (which was insane, btw.), with the idea to bring Swedish Sponge Cloths to the North American market. I had been gifted one the year prior and knew I could put my own spin on it. Over the last 6 years we have grown to include other products that you know and love.
My passion is to create meaningful things that are not only beautiful, but eco conscious too- I don’t think you should have to choose one or the other! The road to building your own business is a bumpy one, but if I can inspire even one other entrepreneur to give it a shot, I would be a happy camper. Follow along on our journey at @ten_and_co for day to day musings on new products, momming and pursuing your passion.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us here at Ten & Co. I feel grateful everyday that I get to do what I love and make beautiful things for you!
