The Carolina Morning Team
Linsi is the owner and founder of Carolina Morning and began the business of sewing and stuffing zafus in her home more than 30 years ago. What a long way Carolina Morning has come now with expanded product lines, a trained staff, online orders, and customers all over the US and the world. Linsi remains at the hub of the wheel, supervising staff, fielding questions and issues, and managing the business with a big heart.
Bethany works in the office and makes sure all the bills are paid and accounts balanced. She is our financial manager, with her finger ever on the financial pulse of the company. She oversees payroll, taxes, bank statements, and purchases from vendors. She also answers the phone and helps with customers whenever she can.
Each day Jonathan comes in, dons a facemask to protect from the fine fibers, turns on the stuffing machine in the back, and pumps the ‘innards’ of kapok or buckwheat into our pillows, cushions, and futons. He expertly ensures just the right amount of stuffing goes into each item, and has an important role at the core of the production process.
Christina is our in house ‘Jill of all trades’, first coming into Carolina Morning as a seamstress sewing pillows and cushions in production, then adding customer service, managing wholesale accounts, and packing and shipping to her list of responsibilities.
As Production Manager, Robert is the one who prepares, measures, cuts, and sees that each item is made uniformly and with high quality standards. With his quiet calm, years of experience, and a racing sewing machine Robert turns a pile of fabric into the cushions and pillows that have become Carolina Morning’s trademark.
Patrick is the mastermind behind many of our innovative modular products including the Eco Square, the Eco Backrest, and Zen Office. He now focuses his attention on the design of our new website, and his own new business Lucky Sheep which makes wool sleeping bags.
Lydia is also part of the production crew, and lends her hand to sewing as well as doing stuffing in the past. She helps where needed which is greatly appreciated. Gifted with a wonderful voice, it is a treat to hear Lydia sing as she works.
