Hello! I’m Ashley, creator of this unique linen rental company in Kansas City. Contrary to popular belief, I’m not a designer...at least not the designer of these fun linen prints, but I have been designing events, corporate meetings, conventions, and fundraising events for the last 12 years. I like to think of myself as a “dot connector” - tell me the big picture vision and I’ll put the pieces together into something special.
I created Citrus & Sage Co. with this same theory in mind. Being in the event industry, I saw a chance to add some fun and flavor to this niche of the rental world in Kansas City. However, these aren’t your average rental linens. I’ve sourced a luxurious fabric - known for its softness, durability, and wrinkle-resistance - and work directly with independent artists to find the unique designs you see in all C&S linens. From there, I partner with Rightfully Sewn, a KC based nonprofit that provides seamstress training for at-risk women so they can thrive in a specialized workforce, to produce and sew all of my linens in the Crossroads Arts District of Kansas City, Missouri.
I know the challenges and stresses that come with planning events; and while I want to provide my clients some variety in selection when it comes to linen rental, I also want to ensure a I provide a quality product, a sustainable process, and an easy ordering experience so we can all thrive in this ever-changing world of event planning.
Citrus adds a kick to the traditional: bright, refreshing, energizing and awakening – all the things you want for a best-in-class event.
Sage is calming, healing and balances out the bright citrus. By combining the two, Citrus + Sage Co. brings an energetic calm to your next event through bold, creative and modern design.
Featured in the July 2019 Tie the Knot issue, Ashley shares tips on selecting speciality linens, unique ways to incorporate designs into your overall event, and the one-of-a-kind partnership with Rightfully Sewn.
