I hope you know that I REALLY love love love our Lids. I designed them for practical moms (like me), who want their kiddos to look stylish (like I used to be). My kiddos REALLY wear them all the time.
Eli’s Lids has been slowly growing! I cant believe I made the first Lid for Eli 5 years ago! (Eli at 5 months old in my first prototype)
Once they started selling a bit, we couldn’t afford a whole roll of different colored fabric, so I painstakingly hand dyed light fabric for some basic colors. Just 7 Lids in each color the first time! Then we got cute tags for the back. Boy did I feel awesome when I saw my logo in a woven tag!! (Eli at 16 months in one of my dyed Lids with the outside tags)
Then we got to buy whole rolls of colored fabric. That was AMAZING.
I couldn’t believe it! (December 2010)
As we grow, I get to add more and more to Eli’s Lids.
We are growing because of you!
I always want Eli’s Lids to be changing and growing and evolving. (And myself, for that matter!)
I want to be better than the rest.
Because of you!
My vision for Eli’s Lids is changing as well.
We’ll always make awesome Lids for hip kiddos. And we’ll always get to help some great people. (Surfers Healing & Henry)
But now we get to change the world.
Just a little… or maybe a lot.
More on that in a few months. (Waiting is lame. Sorry.)
Something I can tell you now…
In about a month we’ll have some new colors!
I love them.
Ocean Aqua, Spring Green and O-live You.
(Get it? I love you, O-live you. Yes? or not so much? If you can think of a better name for Olive-ish, brown-sih, green-ish than you’ll get a free Lid. REALLY!)
What’s after that??
“Neither will we!!!”
