Check out our interview with the team at the Burlington Downtown Business Association. We chat us, what our biz is all about, and why we started this. Oh, and we reveal which dream couple we would make a matching set of undies for! 😁😁😁
Our first undies were made for a family that couldn’t get together for Christmas during the Covid-19 pandemic – so instead they all got matching undies! What a fun idea!
It took us all night! It was such early days – we were still fiddling with process settings, tuning equipment and obsessing over every small detail! And they looked so good!! Thank you so much first customer 😉!!
On February 27th, 2020, do+dare undie co. is incorporated by Rob + Sarah. Let the journey begin!!
