Kathy’s Incredible Journey

25 years later, Primitives by Kathy grew from that first product to over 8,000 active items in the current product line. PBK is honored to be in a secured position as a leader and innovator for gifts and home décor, and often favored for trends and new products by publications and media in the industry.

Kathy remains at the helm of PBK, driving the company with her innovative thinking, entrepreneurial spirit, and artistic vision.

In addition to company donations, Kathy has worked tirelessly to give back to the community where she lives and works. Primitives by Kathy is proud to support local and national charities and programs through volunteerism, benefit products, and sponsorships. We are also proud that 10% of our employees are team members with varied abilities. We are so fortunate to have them and celebrate their involvement in the company daily!

In 2017, Primitives by Kathy founded Kathy’s Circle of Friends as an official 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. KCOF is a non-profit founded by Kathy and supported by Primitives by Kathy employees, hosting a variety of themed social events for adults with various mental and physical disabilities as well as their family, caregivers, PBK employees, and guests.

Our events are staffed mostly by PBK employees who share Kathy’s passion of giving back to the community. We are committed to treating each member with dignity and respect, making a positive impact while growing our circle of friends.



The path ahead is full of opportunity and growth.

Everything we do is driven by our goal to combine our passion for creativity with a culture of caring. We will always feel blessed to have a product line that resonates with so many beloved customers and for the good that we have been able to do in our community because of PBK’s success.

We are focused on constantly evolving to the needs of our customers and creating the best shopping experience possible. The storytelling of our collections continues to expand alongside our partnerships with amazing artists.

Thank you for your continued support. We hope you know how much you are appreciated.
