PM Organics came out of a massive
organic fabric co-op late in the summer of 2001. A bunch of women, mostly
cloth-diaper-sewing and baby-clothes-sewing WAHMs (work at home moms), got
together to purchase a large quantity of organic fabrics at wholesale prices.
Out of this huge venture came the idea for us (Pei and Marie, aka PM, of PM
Organics) to gather enough money to invest in a fabric business. We were tired
of not having reasonably-priced sources of organic fabrics and were sure that
others shared our feelings! As word of our fabric co-op got out, more and more
people joined. Clearly, people wanted these fabrics, but like us, could not find
them, at least not at affordable prices. So, we gathered all the cash we could,
bought as many rolls of fabrics as we could, and started offering these
wonderful organic knit fabrics as an on-going business venture.
Incredibly, after this
initial buy, we have had several additional fabric buys. We are
currently focusing on acquiring as many new fabrics as we can, so
that we may offer more selection to our customers. And, truth be
told, then we get to sew up these gorgeous fabrics for ourselves
and our families! Hopefully, one day soon, we can recoup the initial
money invested in this business, and we sometimes dream of profit.
While we are working on
our selection of organic knit fabrics, we are also trying to make
a few other products available: organic cotton wovens, organic cotton
interfacing, organic cotton thread, organic cotton elastic, organic
cotton twill tape, and plant-dyed organic fabrics. These are things
indispensable to our own sewing. Please let us know what's indispensable
to your sewing!
