OUTRA is a home textile company that appreciates the well-made, simple, and slightly off-beat in our homes.  We are always on the lookout for interesting shapes and images in nature, architecture, and pop culture to incorporate into our designs.  Our goal is to bring enduring interest into your home through the textiles we make.  

Each piece is constructed by hand from sturdy organic cotton grown in the United States and painted with non-toxic paint.  


Laura Evans is the founder and lead designer of OUTRA. Prior to her work in textile design, she studied landscape architecture at the University of Georgia and worked for six years as a landscape designer at Prospect Park in Brooklyn, NY. Laura now lives and works in Asheville, North Carolina with her husband, Blaine, and cat, Honey.
