ABOUT

Welcome to Winnefred Austin.

Pull up a seat, pour some coffee. We're happy to have you here in our corner of the world.

Located in Birmingham, Alabama  Winnefred Austin is rooted in scripture and storytelling through the products we create. Together, the mission to foster community and share a much greater story than our own comes alive.

I’m Ashley Steiner—Winnefred Austin’s 13th generation granddaughter. From the day I could double-fist crayons at less than a year old, I have loved drawing. Growing up, I always created homemade greeting cards to give friends and family for most any occasion. My mother, Michelle, inspired me to turn my passion into a business. In 2013 I started a greeting card company called Ashley Ink.

Fast forward to 2018—Little did I know, my grandmother from 13 generations ago would inspire the next generation of a company. Winnefred Austin was a London lady turned American pioneer.

Today, the company’s hope is to capture her pioneer spirit with products giving a nod to practicality, a touch of old-fashioned whim, and a timeless style to carry through every adventure.

Let Winnefred Austin be your go-to gal! As you write your own story, take Winnefred with you wherever you go.

“For such a time as this” -Esther 4:14
