Pokate [rhymes with “locate”] was born out of the need for a home for all of the objects and artists I find and enjoy most. It’s also a way for me to share and organize the designers, products and artists that I learn about from others, especially my friends and family.

I’m Kate Pokorny, I’m based in Boston’s South End and work as a media strategist in technology media relations for clients in venture capital, consumer electronics, and enterprise software mostly.

While today I work in media relations, I went to college for Art and Art History and have spent many a month felting, soldering, fresco painting, and glassblowing.

  2. Hi

    That was so nice what you said. I’m glad you like the pillows.

    I am going to Ghana tomorrow to work with a new co-operative and educate them on natural dyes.

    Also since you are based in NY , I do custom rugs as well.

    I should have a website up mid to late June. So email me and I will put you on my list.

    Happy Day,
