If you have ever owned a pair of Goldsheep Leggings you are all too familiar with that instant spurt of joy when you have a pair on. Whether you are headed to yoga or to the grocery store your day somehow gets a little brighter when you are in Goldsheep. Keri Wilson the founder of Goldsheep Clothing is the master mind behind this unique clothing brand and her passion for embracing individuality and having a good time is apparent in every pair of Goldsheep Leggings.
We love how your leggings are handcrafted in the US. What was the decision to have production stay in the US and in Orange County specifically?
I made the decision that I wanted everything in one place right when I started GOLDSHEEP. I made that decision because I had a background in production and I know what doing production overseas looks like. GOLDSHEEP is a higher quality product and very unique and we want to keep it that way. I wanted to make sure that the quality was always what we started with. I also know that there are many moving parts to our process and when they are broken up it doesn’t work. No matter how big we get I want to be able to just grow our team and our space to meet the demand. That is super important to me. I also think that fact that we can create jobs in the US is important :) I love being able to say that we proudly make each piece as its ordered in Orange County. It makes the product even more special :)
What is your advice for other female entrepreneurs who want to start their own company?
NEVER EVER GIVE UP :) This is not easy and honestly it keeps getting harder. But every single morning I remember that this is my dream and I am living it. I think I would also tell them to find someone that is doing what you are doing and call them and make them your mentor:) That way you will be able to avoid a lot of mistakes!
What is your power suit?
Every single day anyone that knows me will tell you I wear GOLDSHEEP :) I would say the brighter the happier the print the better :) I will wear a legging I am loving at that time with a black tank my mesh bomber jacket and my gold glitter sneakers. Goldsheep not only changed my mood but it also is the most comfortable thing ever!!
