Meet Tasha!





We are so excited to share with you our new Creative Operations Assistant aka (my right hand) at KUFRI. A Southern California Native, Tasha Buchheit is the epitome of all things artful. Through mutual colleagues Tasha and KUFRI became a match made in textile heaven this summer, and we can’t wait to share all that we’ve been up to in this short period of time. So let me turn it over to her so she can share a little more about herself…

-Hey Hey! I’m Tasha Buchheit and I was born and raised in Riverside, California. I am a Fashion Design graduate from The Art Institute of California, a wife to Tim, a mother to my three-year-old soul Zoë and fur mom to our Siamese mix cat named Boots. We transplanted to North Texas in the fall of 2014 and slowly, but surely making Texas feel like home.

Who is your top Favorite Artist?

  1. Frida Kahlo – “My Spirit Animal”
  2. Sarah Golish – “Visual Artist Queen”
  3. Alexander McQueen – “Nightmare of an imagination”
  4. Gustav Klimit – “My Austrian Muse”

What is your dream forever-home location?

I would love a late 1960’s-1970’s mid-century/Spanish bungalow home in the hills of Spain where I can paint, design and watch my family grow.

Where does your creative drive and inspiration come from?

Honestly not sure where the love of art comes from but the drive is from my Papa Willie. He is the hardest working man I know even at 78 years young (They don’t make them like him anymore). With the background as a brick layer, carpenter, tailor & dry cleaner owner, and retired Electrical Engineer His will and determination to be the best at whatever He has chosen in life fuels me to do the same.

What are your favorite KUFRI textiles?

Currently I am obsessed with Rex and our Raw Solids in Sodalite. I just want to re-upholster all of my home furniture in these beautiful textiles.

So thankful to be a part of the KUFRI team, this evolving company has so much potential and I am excited to dive right in!mett-tasha-blog-inspo
