i decided to start purusha people because of my desire to create, and to share my creations with people in a way that is broad yet still very unique and individual. i've always known i wanted to run my own business, i just didn't know what i wanted that business to be! i've had a love affair with yoga off and on for the past 10 years, but only in the past 2 years have we really been 'in love'. hehe.
i didn't really love most yoga clothes i owned- either the looks i had were too boring and black, or too tie dyed and funky... so i wanted to create something in between- clothing that is timeless and age appropriate, yet still fashionable and youthful. i started purusha officially almost 3 years ago, when i opened my etsy shop in march 2009.
i taught myself how to screen print and dye clothing by hand. it helps that my mom is a painter (http://www.catherinemelliott.com/) and had given me lessons on color combining and mixing. after about 1 1/2 years on etsy i was able to quit my waitressing job (best day of my life!) and devote myself to purusha people full time. purusha has been evolving, growing, and becoming better ever since and i am beyond excited to see where it takes me!
