silas + THE SLOTH was started November 2016 and was inspired by my son Silas and my wonderful husband THE SLOTH. I call him the sloth because he has one pace and it's about the pace of a sloth. Drives me nuts!
Before having Silas I always had a creative career in marketing. I designed brochures, planned events, photographed buildings and ran a Christmas program which allowed me to be creative all the time. After having Silas I was missing that part of me and wanted to get back into doing something creative but also would allow me to be a stay at home mom. I had been to plenty of markets and told Justin (THE SLOTH) that it would be so amazing if I could make Silas his own t-shirts because I had so many cool ideas. Little did I know that his mom use to own a t-shirt shop and still had all the commercial equipment. She took me under her wing and showed me the t-shirt ways.
I design all my designs in Illustrator sometimes with the help of purchasing vectors, Justin gives me lots of amazing puns to work with and then I upload my designs into the vinyl cutter software. I then cut and weed the vinyl and then it's hot pressed onto tees, sweaters or rompers.
This has been the most amazing experience of my life and the only job I have truly loved other than being a mom. Thank you so much for your support. Each purchase, picture, like and comment along the way has made every day so rewarding. I’ve met some amazing boss moms along the journey and continue to collaborate with them to give you adorable clothing!
Thank you thank you thank you for letting me dress your little babes!
