I first discovered MamaSans Maternity Apparel when doing a pinterest search for Punky Moms, which led me to their etsy store and later their website. I thought their items would be perfect for our members and members-to-be so I contacted the owner Pattie and asked her a few questions about her company.
Punkymoms: When was your company founded?
Punkymoms: Where are you based out of?
Pattie: Huntington Beach
Punkymoms: How many are involved in the company?
Punkymoms: What inspired you to start the company?
Pattie: When I was pregnant with my son, I just couldn’t find any maternity clothing that fit my style! Over sized dresses and tops were only working for so long….
Punkymoms: Did you have a background in fashion prior to starting the company?
Pattie: I wasn’t trained in fashion but I do have family members that work in the industry. I learned the ins and outs of the business through them.
Punkymoms: Did you run into any problems or resistance while launching your company?
Pattie: Where do I start…
Punkymoms: How do your clothes differ from the usual run of the mill maternity clothes?
Pattie: We design clothing for the alternative fashioned mom to-be. If your lifestyle is Punk, Rockabilly, Pin Up, Goth or anything in between…Thats who we design for!
Punkymoms: What is the most exciting part of running your own business?
Pattie: I get really excited when we receive emails from moms and moms to-be that are truly excited about finding an alternative to your everyday maternity wear.
Punkymoms: What do you see in the future of MamaSan Maternity?
Pattie: Sky’s the limit!
Thank you Pattie and I wish your family and company the best! ~ Diana Jeanne
