Why Copper Pearl Baby Bandana Bibs? A Chat With Our Founders

Our company came from the fiery dream of two stay-at-home moms, Stephanie and Kristin.  Together with their husbands, they launched Copper Pearl, with the idea and hope of creating a line of premium, trendy, and unique baby accessories and clothing.  The quality of the Copper Pearl baby bandana bibs that you enjoy today is a result of that initial dream.  We asked Stephanie and Kristin a few questions to help you get to know them a bit better.  They are both passionate, accomplished women, and we hope you catch a glimpse of that through their answers below.

Here's what Stephanie had to say:

  1. What's your favorite part of being a mom?

 I love watching my boys experience the world. I love seeing them grow, learn, and change. I love experiencing the unconditional love I have for them.  On the days they drive me crazy (and there are many!), I still find myself missing them so much after they're in bed. 

 

  1. What are three passions you have?

Of course, my family is my biggest passion. And then Copper Pearl. But other than those. . .

1) Music.   I studied Piano Performance in college and really enjoy teaching piano now. Music is so powerful and can be such a force for good!

2) Health. I'm an avid runner, and I'm passionate about all things health and nutrition related.

3) Travel. I live to travel! I've been lucky enough to live abroad three times (London, northern England, and Amsterdam) and hope I get to do it again. I get a travel itch every few months and need to go somewhere! 

 

  1. What's your favorite part of running Copper Pearl?

It is SO fun to run our own business! I'm mostly in charge of our social media, and I have so much fun seeing all the cute photos people post in our bandana bibs.  It makes me so happy to see that people love and enjoy our products! I also love being part of the design process.  It's so rewarding to see ideas take shape, come to life, and become successful. 

 

And the following came from Kristin:

  1. What are the three things that make you most happy right now? 

1) Weekends. I know that you aren't supposed to "live for the weekend," but I can't help it! I look forward to the time when my husband is home from work, and we are all together. 

2) The Holidays! I am one of those moms that starts planning in August what my children are going to be for Halloween. I have so many great memories from my childhood of the holidays, but they have only gotten better for me as a mom.  I now get to see the pure joy on my kids' faces during the magic of the holiday season. 

3) Finding new restaurants. I LOVE food! That is seriously my husband and my hobby; I kid you not. We take eating VERY seriously in our family! To try and be healthier, my husband, our children, and I have been eating plant-based within our home since 2011. On the weekends though, we go out to restaurants and eat whatever we want. Let me tell you, when you haven't had ice cream all week, it tastes a LOT sweeter and creamier when you finally do have it on the weekend.

 

  1. What is your dream job, and why?

Since I first sat behind a sewing machine, at the age of twelve, I have loved both sewing and the idea of having my own clothing line. To be honest, I have about five "dream jobs," but owning my own clothing line has been one of my dreams ever since then. After having children, my clothing line has morphed into a baby/toddler clothing line, as well as a maternity line. Why is it so hard to find cute maternity clothing?

 

  1. What's your favorite part of running Copper Pearl? 

I LOVE designing new fabrics. That is one of my absolute favorite things about it all. I also love hearing people say that they love our bibs. When you put a lot of work into something, and you really love things, it's great to hear other people say they like them, too.

 

Thanks, Stephanie and Kristin, for taking the time to let us get to know you.
