Kailo Chic started in February 2005. I had just graduated from UT with a degree in Chemical Engineering and was ready to start working. After the first week at my new post college job, I freaked out and quit. Not the smartest thing to do, but I was scared and couldn't imagine myself working in a lab for the next 40 years.
So, there I was fresh out of college, without a job, and without money. As luck would have it, I was also planning my wedding. Why luck you ask? Well, the day I went to the fabric store to find the pattern for my wedding dress (my grandmother was making my dress for me), I ended up finding a cool handbag pattern! So with the few bucks I had left, I purchased the pattern along with a little bit of fabric and went home to sew up some new bags.
Now, I was actively searching for a new job, but in the meantime, I was home all day with no money and needed some hobby to occupy my time. That is were the sewing began. With my little sewing machine I got as a high school graduation present, some scrap fabric, and that little handbag pattern, I started what would eventually become Kailo Chic.
In 2015 I began A Kailo Chic Life, the lifestyle component to Kailo Chic all about DIY, Crafts, and Home Decor and how to add color to your life.
Cut to 11+ years later... Kailo Chic is a nation wide brand and I get to do what I love! I work for myself fulltime; my husband works with me; and we get to spend all day with our children (Madeline and Parker). Life is great! And to think it all started when I quit my first real job on a whim with no idea what I was going to do for a living.
