Hi, I'm Sarah! I created The Styling Mat (PATENT PENDING) for on-the-go creatives who need a portable solution for flat lays. While I love the idea of styling boards, as a photographer I found them cumbersome in practice. They can’t be cleaned. They’re bulky. And it’s hard to take them with you on location.

I decided there had to be a better way, and The Styling Mat was born. 

This is the only styling surface in the world that’s portable, foldable, and washable. Styling Mats easily fit into a large purse, small carry-on suitcase, or camera bag, and even our smallest mat is over twice the size of styling boards. Our larger mats can even serve as a portable backdrop solution for hairstylists, makeup artists, photographers, and florists along with being great for a larger flat lay. 

Each fabric is hand-selected by me to give you the most versatility and the best reproduction. Styling Mats are locally sourced in North Carolina and created in small batches or made to order. We test for color quality, texture, and durability, and unlike lower quality fabrics like linen, they are durable and as wrinkle-free as possible. We frequently have limited edition fabrics because we know you don't want your photos looking like everyone else's.

We believe strongly in supporting fellow small business owners. The Styling Mat is sourced and made in North Carolina, supporting several small businesses. We operate with a very small but efficient team to get your orders made and shipped as quickly as possible. Thank you for supporting a fellow creative!
