An artist, maker, and former Philadelphia preschool teacher, Kate Leibrand is the creative force behind TWEE - a company specializing in handmade, small batch, sidewalk chalk. The name TWEE stems from her art school critiques; after repeatedly being told her work was too “twee” or “cute” Kate began to wonder - What was so wrong with that? Instead of changing her aesthetic, Kate embraced it. All TWEE sidewalk chalk focuses on a child’s mental and physical growth and are designed to stimulate artistic abilities in the process. What started as a project in her kitchen has expanded into a small, woman owned and run business whose products are carried all over the country.
