Sponsor Giveaway from Super Skivvies

Today I would like to introduce you to the lovely Steph of Super Skivvies

This is her story…

Linda: How did your business come to be?

Steph:

Super Skivvies was conceived by accident! Originally, I was sewing decorated bamboo velour and bamboo fleece prefolds, and knitting and crocheting wool longies (pants) and diaper covers. The prefold diaper market where I was selling was over saturated, and knitting for other people was not my cup of tea, no matter how much I was being paid. I had a friend ask for someone to make her daughter potty training pants for overnight, and I, wanting to try something new, jumped all over the opportunity. I’m insanely frugal, so I wanted to somehow figure out a way to make them last beyond potty training, and this is where I had the idea to make them convertible. My friend loved them, so I tried selling them in my shop…they were a HUGE hit! I left the prefold and wool diaper cover business in the dust and never looked back!

Linda: What is your inspiration?

Steph:

My daughter. I want to show my daughter what a good work ethic looks like, both for money and work in the home, and that she doesn’t have to work a 9-5 in a cubicle if she doesn’t want to. My line of work and this business gives me the opportunity to stay home with her and to teach her how to be a creative, free thinking, contributing member of society.

Linda: Tell us about the materials that you use.

Steph:

Sustainability and avoidance of toxic chemicals is a priority for me. Super Skivvies are made of cotton (sometimes organic or Oeko-Tex certified), and bamboo (naturally organic).  I chose bamboo over several other absorbent materials for the following reasons:

  • Rapid growing crop grown without the use of pesticides or fertilizers.
  • Produced in a “closed loop system” that re-circulates and captures agents used to convert the plant into fiber.
  • Biodegradable
  • Anti-microbial
  • Breathable
  • Moisture wicking
  • Hypo-allergenic
  • 300% more absorbent than cotton
  • Anti-static

Linda: Tell us about any exciting products that you are adding to your range.

Steph:

We actually just launched our new boxer brief style of Super Skivvies! They are SO cute and double up as bloomers for the girls. In 2013, I hope to add a line of panties/underwear and hopefully dip my toes in the overnight/bed wetting area of absorbent pants.

Linda: How you balance family and work?

Steph:

I think all of us are continually trying to figure out how to balance the two! As Super Skivvies grows, our family life seems to keep right up. I have had a huge amount of growth over the last two years, and thankfully, my daughter has entered “school age” during that time. She attends a local Waldorf school then comes home and naps for a couple of hours, and I use that time to get most of my work done. It is also common for me to be at the computer or filling orders after she has gone to bed. I try to avoid working from after nap until bedtime so that I am fully available to her.

Linda: What you do to recharge?

Steph:

Every other Friday, I go to a women’s only naked spa with my friend. I also barely lift a finger on Sunday’s! I’m the type of person who is always “go-go-go!” so it doesn’t take much for me to feel like I have more to give again.

    Intriguing…. I’m doing just about everything under the sun to get my 2 year old (well 2 and 4 months) interested in wearing panties full time. She likes the feel of them but resists having to stop her play and go potty. We call her “Busy Lizzy” for a reason. Maybe if she had some of these beauties it might inspire her…
