Hi there! My name is Kristin and I'm the founder of Liam and Lore. I started this shop with the vision of creating simple, stylish bookish merch that speak to what matters to my customers. Over time, I've expanded to include designs that represent not just my hobbies and passions, but also those of my friends and family. From your favorite book or movie to the causes that you fight for, we design with you in mind. I hope you can find something that showcases that unique passion here.
I first started designing and manufacturing clothing in 2019 after spending 15 years working in the tech industry. The first phase of my business was simply making designs for friends and family and the books they had fallen in love with. However, I quickly realized I was going to have to figure out how to scale my operation as demand grew. I kept things simple in the beginning - making only t-shirts. I soon expanded into other bookish goods, from adult and kids apparel to homegoods and other related bookish merch.
My first design was one made for my husband and his love of off-roading:
But quickly moved onto things that mattered to me, like falling in love with a new good book:
I love creating new designs and love seeing the joy it brings my customers. I'm so happy you're here and enjoy hearing feedback, questions or comments - feel free to drop me a line with any questions or just to say hi!
