About Us

Hey guys! I'm Jenni Workman: mommy, wife, and the creative director and owner of Sauntra Mercantile. 
Based out of South Carolina, USA, it is my hope that through our products, we can pour into others like myself who struggle with depression, anxiety, stress, or are just going through a rough patch. Often times when we get buried under piles of to-do lists and swamped with the demands of the world, we start to forget our paths and feel overwhelmed, anxious, and honestly alone. The word "Sauntra" is based on the pronunciation of the French word for "center." It is my hope that through my pieces and products, you can be reminded to slow down. To take a minute and just breathe. We all get caught up in the busyness of life that we forget to take time for ourselves, forget to take time to be still. But there's just something about wrapping up in a handmade blanket or sipping on tea out of a handmade mug, repeating some kick-ass phrases and starting the mornings slow that is so comforting. It reminds us that we are valuable and cared for, and we deserve a full and happy life. This is the feeling I hope to share with you because you are so incredibly valuable and worthy. I hope that our products can bring comfort, empowerment, and a little humor to your day, no matter what you are facing.
Thanks so much for your support and for shopping small!
