Hi, I’m Ryann! I’ve always been a maker but when I discovered textile design, I immediately fell in love. Pregnant with my first child and unable to find products that I felt represented not only my own individual style but also the hopes and aspirations I had from my little one on the way I started designing everything from blankets, to crib sheets, to booties, to prints for the walls. You name it, I made it! Slowly I honed in my craft, focused on what I loved to design, quit my “real” job, and took the giant leap of faith. That is how Charlie Rowan Designs was born.
take me on all your adventures
Rooted in adventure and curiosity, I believe wholeheartedly in surrounding ourselves with inspiring, well made, items that reflect both our own individuality and passion for life – my designs are meant to be a gentle reminder to surround ourselves with inspiration for an adventurous & curious life
I’m a firm believer that our surroundings not only influence the person we become but have the ability to provide us with a sense of boldness, wonder, and inspiration. For those who know me, there is no question that I have my own unique style and have always sought out products that I felt were a representation of me. Growing up in Salt Lake City I spent the majority of my time in the mountains and desert where I developed a deep love for both. I headed off to Philadelphia for college where I earned my degree in Design and Merchandising and just as easily fell in love with the color, sounds, and bustle of the city. When I created Charlie Rowan Designs my love for all three of these environments were infused into my designs providing a sense of wonder and curiosity while hopefully telling the story of the individual and the home that each piece belongs to.
