INTERVIEW WITH PIPER MARIE
Can you tell us a little about Piper Marie?
Piper Marie is an Eco-friendly lingerie company. We use sustainable materials and work hard to reduce the ever growing carbon foot print of the fashion industry. We also make our items in studio outside Chicago, IL.
How did you come up with the name of your business?
Piper is my maiden name and Marie is my middle.
Can you tell us where you sell your items?
Piper Marie is sold online at pipermarie.com and on our etsy sitehttps://www.etsy.com/shop/PiperMarieDesigns. We also do local markets and trunk shows. Our next step is getting into stores.
What do you sell?
We mostly focus on lingerie however we do carry some tee's and tanks. We use our scrap materials from the items we cut to make other things such as hair goods and purses. This helps reduce our waist. Another line to Piper Marie is our "I'm the Pacifier" campaign. We screen print tag lines on organic cotton and bamboo bodysuits to help normalize breastfeeding.
What inspired you to start this business?
I have owned a business making items for people for over 16 years. After taking some time off to be just mom I needed to find an outlet for my craft. I used to make underwear and people loved them. So I decide to just start there again and see where it takes me.
Can you tell us where to go to purchase your items?
You can find our items on at http://pipermarie.com starting April 13th. You can head over there now to learn more about us and to sign up to keep up with all things Piper Marie.
