On a mission to create things and expressions of lasting value, we constantly seek new experiences and skills.
We aren’t searching for the meaning in life, we have found the power to make meaning.
Trusting in inspiration, we pursue the moments when ideas flow effortlessly and creatively.
The PRESSED Story started in 2011 when owner Ashley Thompson moved to North Carolina to begin her journey as a military spouse. A creative spirit and a passion for design led her to begin a design company while her husband was deployed overseas. In 2015, Ashley took her love for design, creative marketing experience and retail background and opened PRESSED - A Creative Space. She wanted to create a place for people to be inspired through great design and unique products. Where people can find unique treasures, meet like-minded friends and discover what drives their creativity.
Now located at 120 Hay Street, PRESSED is a retail store that features uniquely curated, beautifully crafted and well designed products. PRESSED also hosts events and creative workshops where you can learn a new creative skill or just hang out with friends in an inspiring space!
