Meet Our Team

Here at Inclined Designs we believe that supporting other women is one of our top priorities. We work hard to find creative women, moms and female college students that are just as dedicated to quality and customer service as our owners are. 

The Maker: Karyn Pope


Hi! I'm Karyn, the mastermind behind Inclined Designs. I have a young daughter, a husband of 7 years, and have been sewing since 1996 (I started in High School!) . I have made everything from Halloween costumes to wedding dresses and currently specialize in infant accessories and hand lettered graphic design. In addition to running Inclined Designs I am a full time accountant at a local steel company. I love any kind of art and am constantly learning new techniques and medias to work with. I love designing things for little ones and custom orders are a favorite. 

Shop Assistant: Bri


Hello! My name is Bri. I am 19 and currently a student at ccac. I love going to punk rock concerts and favor 80s/90s movies because the new one's aren't as cool. I have been helping Karyn out for a few years now and every experience at these shows with these amazing local artists has been awesome! Smaller businesses deserve so much love and support and if I am able to help with a small part of that then life just gets a tiny bit better each time.

Shop Assistant: Ana

My name is Ana. I am a full-time student, artist, musician, and hopefully future archivist from Pittsburgh, Pa. I am an avid advocate for LGBT+ and gender equality. 


Production Partner: Becky Maners

Becky does everything Button in our shop. We reuse every scrap of our Burgh Bits fabric and turn them into things like keychains, magnets and more. Becky is a mom of two and owns her own business as well as a full time job. 

Production Partner: Hip Modern Soap

Hip Modern Soap creator Carrie makes our 3 B's Balm for us in her soap studio. We have tested several recipes to make the perfect that everyone loves. You can find her soap at
