“My name is Amy, and I am a 30-something-year-old 4th grade public school teacher morphed into a stay at home mom to two beautiful babies, Jacob and Evelyn. I am married to the most amazing man in the world, Brandon, who is a youth minister, motivational speaker, author and father extraordinaire.
How Evy’s Tree came into my life is completely by accident; definitely what I would consider a God thing. When I decided to stay home with Jacob, money was VERY tight. In October of 2009, I was inspired by many wonderful and creative stay at home moms to learn to sew and then eventually embellish a couple hoodies for myself to take on trip to Disneyworld. I posted some pictures of the hoodies on my family blog and almost immediately I started receiving emails from people asking if they could purchase one. A couple of weeks later I put up a Paypal link on my blog and sold 15 in 30 minutes. And my business was born…today we sell thousands of hoodies across the world to children, teenagers, young college goers, career women, moms and even grandmothers! Evy’s Tree is definitely well-loved around the globe.
We often get asked why make luxury hoodies? Well, hoodies have been a huge part of my life…I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and since we lived so close to the coast, the marine layer/coastal fog would roll in at night and turn a 80 degree day into freezing cold within a few seconds flat. I was taught to always carry a hoodie or light jacket in my backpack or in the trunk of my car. We layer- a lot- around here. As I became a mom, I noticed how hard it was to find hoodies that were cute, acceptable as day wear, but also comfortable and luxurious. To me, its all about the feel and the fit, as well as the cuteness factor. I found it so hard to find a hoodie that met my standards and that I could throw on, run my kids to school in the morning without looking like I just rolled out of bed. This is why we continue to pursue making high end hoodies that make every woman feel amazing… even if she did just roll out of bed, none would be the wiser! It is our hope that you find in our shop something that you can forever live in. Thank you for reading about Evy’s Tree!”
