This post is intended to share my journey thus far as a mom entrepreneur a.k.a “mompreneur.” My journey and accomplishments over the past year are far from being the “poster child success story,” I might have wished for. However, while it has been a somewhat bumpy ride, I’ve come out with a very strong sense of fulfillment, something I wouldn’t trade for anything. So, in the hope of encouraging moms out there to bring forth more children into the world: whether it’s a business, passion project, career or another human, please read on.
One my favourite brands is Everlane. I LOVE their mission to provide “Radical Transparency” to their customers. My vision for Q for Quinn was to do the same. Not only did I want to create a fun, lifestyle brand around mismatched style but a brand that stands for my own values, one of which is knowing where and how my own clothes are made. By choosing Q for Quinn organic cotton socks for your kids, you have placed so much trust in the Q for Quinn brand. It is therefore very necessary that I share my journey to finding the right supplier for Q for Quinn socks with you.Continue reading

In giving children the freedom to mix and match their socks, I want to encourage kids (and adults) to create their own perfectly mismatched lifestyle that represents who they are. This message is subtly embedded in the stories we tell and the products we sell!Continue reading
Acronyms often have a way of sounding important but intimidating (at least to me). In my quest to manufacture the best possible children’s socks in the market, I encountered so many acronyms in apparel manufacturing. It was overwhelming at first, but after some research it quickly became clear to me which certifications or acronyms were truly relevant and which were not. This would have never happened if I hadn’t decided to venture into the world of apparel (or sock) manufacturing and I’d like to think that I am a reasonably "educated" consumer. As a result, it is only fitting that I start Q for Quinn’s blog with clarification on what GOTS certified means.Continue reading
