So if you’ve somehow kept following my blog all these years you have certainly noticed there hasn’t been much updating since 2013. I didn’t give up on blogging but wanted to focus more of my time on my true passion which is starting my own business. Now I wrote about MoversAtlas (which is still trucking along) in another post but I have since started a new venture that I wanted to share here as well. So without further ado I introduce Vamori and the story of how it all started.
Changing the way you store, wear and wash your clothes!
When I landed my 1st professional job after college I realized I was spending way to much time and money washing the clothes I wore to work. The office environment was business casual so that meant slacks and a button up shirt every day. Originally I would wash everything I wore to work after only one wear but I quickly realized that was unnecessary. I began wearing my clothes multiple times between washes but then I ran into another problem, how do I know how many times I’ve worn something and when it needs to be washed?
To solve this problem I created a manual method of tracking how many times I wore each shirt and pair of pants. I decided 3-4 wares struck a good balance between wearing and washing. About a year into using my manual method I thought, “ya know, wouldn’t it be really cool if I could just log this information on the hanger itself?”. While I thought that was a great idea I had no idea how to make such an item so I kept using this manual method for over 5 years.
That is, until this Summer, when I decided I was going to learn how to hand make a hanger that would track how many times I wore an article of clothing myself! After learning the process, making a closet full and showing a few hangers to friends and family, most thought they were pretty cool so I decided to put them online and see if any would sell. Which lead me to opening my first Etsy shop! You can take a look at my shop and the actual products here.
I am excited to see where this new venture will lead, hopefully I’ll be back soon with positive updates!
