Earlier this month, we brought you information about handmade lingerie. One your favorite designers was Swoon, so we decided to get a little more personal with an interview! The individuals who make up Swoon prefer to remain personally anonymous and told me during the interview that â€œwe are our pants,â€ which really shines through. They even rejected an offer to put their own pictures up here so that they could get a collage of their beautiful pieces up here instead! Iâ€™m so taken by their dedication to their craft and the love they clearly have for what the beautiful things they make!
Here’s a little excerpt, read the full interview right here!
There are three of us at Swoon – between the three of us we cover all genders (not difficult!) and we also try to cover all â€˜attitudesâ€™: thatâ€™s a bit more challenging, but we like to think weâ€™re quite attitude-savvy, and weâ€™re doing what we can to make our products â€˜inclusive to allâ€™. Ha! That may seem a little strange when weâ€™re talking about underwear, but we have a pretty symbiotic relationship with our pants: we are them and they are us! – and we believe thatâ€™s as it should be.
The Swooning process was pretty organic – as is usually the case with a warm-blooded business (i.e. no one sat down at a desk and planned it!). It started with one pair of pants that was so admired and clamored after that it quickly led to another. It was one of those â€˜this is just for meâ€™ things that grew into â€˜okay, this is for me, but Iâ€™ll let my friends join inâ€™ and then to an â€˜alright friends of friends tooâ€™ situation, and then to Etsy!
