Being a clothing designer typically requires years of training and practice. At American T’s, however, the title of designer only requires a few clicks of a mouse. In the outfitters’ online store, clients can select designs from team mascots to gamboling Easter bunnies, edit the design’s color scheme, and add text. Alternatively, they can co-create a design with the in-house art team, matching the image to a birthday party’s theme or an office’s fuchsia-only dress code. The shop can screenprint finalized designs onto Ts, hoodies, hats, and sweatpants. For a more minimalist look, visitors can also order clothing graphic-free. American T's also offers spirit wear for four local schools: Beggs, Mounds, Glenpool, and Kiefer.

Lori Alison’s daughter needed a cool bag for her first day of school. Because her daughter is in a wheelchair, Lori found herself lacking any good options, so she decided to fashion one herself. She sewed together an oilcloth bag that would meet all three of her daughter’s needs: fun, funky, and functional. This experience sparked Lori’s love of oilcloth as a medium and inspired her to transform her passion project into a home business, named Tatermash Oilcloth for her daughter's nickname. Today, all Lori's pieces are in oilcloth—a printed vinyl that can easily be cleaned with a towel and soap—and they range from totes and purses to diaper bags, aprons, cosmetic bags, and bags for gathering newly tapped oil. With two shops in the area, most products are made in Tulsa and sewn directly by the Tatermash staff, allowing for easy embroidery and customized orders.
For more than 47 years, Amir's Persian Imports has collected a vast array of silk and wool carpets brought over from the traditional centers of Persian-rug weaving. As a second-generation carpet importer, resident rug aficionado Kaveh has a near encyclopedic knowledge of his exotic wares and is able to opine about subtle differences between the patterns of Isfahan and Tabriz and how to cultivate a bumper crop of paisley. Guests choose from the colorful tapestries adorning the walls, floors, and ceilings, and cleaning technicians gently hand scrub floor adornments with a time-tested technique. Each hand woven work of art is steeped in thousands of years of rich cultural heritage, drawing from the unique styles and motifs of Shiraz, Mashdad, Kashan, and Baluch.
