The Stuff of Life Can Be a Burden or An Opportunity

I always thought my twin boys were the original packrats. One day, while making my way through the trail of their scattered possessions, I realized they come from a long line of collectors. So, armed with a degree in art, countless years of sewing experience, and inspiration from two kids with bulging pockets, Little Packrats was born.

From the get-go, I have applied fashion-forward design to everyday backpacks, lunch totes and accessories. I love my business because it gives me a way to help others balance the burden of lugging life’s stuff around. It may sound philosophical, but it is practical. Plus if I can do anything to make someone else’s day a little easier and a lot brighter, than I’ve really accomplished something that makes my mother and my kid’s grandmother proud.
