It's About Beauty - It's About Customer Love

Lauren Kingsley creator and proprietor of the Painted Trout
The Painted Trout Story

The Painted Trout began when artist Lauren Kingsley left the house wearing one of her hand-painted silk scarves featuring Brook, Brown, and Rainbow trout. Neighbors in Ann Arbor, Michigan stopped her in the driveway and promptly bought every trout scarf she had. Today The Painted Trout original designs adorn not only textiles such as bandanas, scarves and neckties, but tile, mugs, notecards, T-shirts, and more. Imagery is inspired by hunting and equestrian themes as well as fishing. We carry the finest quality goods that are unique, useful, and downright wonderful. We also offer one-of-a-kind artisan-made items (on our website, as well as custom-design service for a single special gift, corporate programs, private label goods, and non-profits.

Everything we offer at The Painted Trout is designed, created, or selected with one thing in mind: it must be beautiful. It can be fun and other things, too, but as an object of usefulness or decoration, as a gift or a tool – it must be beautiful. Period.
