Paisley Raye is a direct sales clothing company founded in 2017. We sell women’s clothing, made in America. This clothing is designed to help busy women- from mothers to professionals, look stunning with one simple piece. A fashion industry veteran, Christi and her cousin, Ruth, decided to begin designing their own line and developing a way for women to sell the clothing through independent pop up boutiques and online.
Why did I choose Paisley Raye?
When it was time for me to leave another clothing company, I was looking for several things. Quality, creative freedom as a business owner, and consideration of the needs of plus size women.
Paisley Raye’s clothing is made in America. The sizing runs from sizes 0-26. This clothing line, unique to other Direct Sales clothing companies, has an entire plus sizing line that is tailored to plus size needs! Freakin’ incredible friends. So the sizing patterns go from XS to XL, then 0X to 3X. This is remarkable for me because as a size 22, I always struggle with arm and waist fit. Paisley Raye has two separate patterns, one to meet straight sizing needs (0-16) and one to meet plus sizing needs (16-26). The patterns have differences in order to meet the needs of differing body types.
The other thing that drew me to Paisley Raye is the freedom we are given to sell on most available platforms. Shopify, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, our own website, pop up shops, vendor events… the options are endless. We are being given the opportunity to really make this business work for us, and we have the freedom to choose how we’re going to do it.
The final and most important reason I chose Paisley Raye is the quality of their product. The fabric gram weights are heavier and this makes them more durable than your average retail clothing brand. This means you’re going to get more washes and wears out of them before the fabrics break down! The designs are also one of my favorite things about this company. Nearly every piece has a detail, an interesting seam, a knotted hem, a ruffle, etc. I never need to have 42 of the same piece of clothing, closet diversity is magic.
The clothing comes in Hall of Fame styles and limited seasonal styles. This gives us more options each season, and it means you won’t end up to having the 10 of the same style in different prints. There will be lots of variation in available styles! It changes regularly during the year. We love this option and we think our customers will too.
We launched our Paisley Raye business in March 2018. You should join our group in order to hear the latest news on the new inventory headed our way!
