4.5 years ago our first son, Aki was nearing his 1st Birthday! I realized that with a party planned he had nothing to wear. I had Ryan, my husband and a graphic designer take my idea of a radiating number '1' and turn it into something we could have screen printed. At the time I was a stay at home mom. I attended fashion design school in my early 20's but was terrible at sewing and ended up training as a nursing aid which I loved. Ryan worked as a graphic designer and was laid off during government cutbacks. He took a job at a screen printing shop where he screen printed and designed.
When our friends saw the shirts we had made Aki and all commented on wanting them for their kids we decided to use our entire savings of $250 and invest it in our first run of shirts. Our etsy store took off quickly and we kept re-investing in our company, working nights and screen printing in the basement suite we lived in. Fast forward 4 years and we now have 3 sons, both working from our own home, employing an amazing team of people and are manufacturing all of our clothing and selling worldwide. We could have never fathomed what this could have turned into. It really goes to show, when you are doing something out of love you can accomplish amazing things. We feel that every experience and job we ever had has set us up and prepared us for this.
Our goal is to make clothing for everyone. Unisex, comfortable and stylish for any age. We want our clothing to make you smile and make you feel good.
Thank you to everyone who has shown us support over the years. In purchasing from us, in telling your friends and following our story. We are so grateful to be able to be a small part of your lives.
