Triangle & Poppy is a company founded by Julia Rinaolo, who is born and raised in the Upstate NY area. She started this business in her junior year of college where she studied graphic design and fiber arts. Her two passions, hand lettering and weaving, is what this company is based on: the fusion of those two very separate entities. Her work ranges from calligraphy on event invitations, to envelope addressing, to tapestry weavings to handwoven home accessories. Her appreciation for handwriting and yarn dates back to her elementary school days. She is a self taught letterer, and her grandmother taught her to knit when she was about 8 years old. She was introduced to weaving techniques in college and she fell in love with turning a single strands of thread and turning them into beautiful pieces of art.
