One day back in 2015, two moms…two friends…two entrepreneurs sat down with their coffee (or it could have been wine) and a conversation started that would send them on a great quest that would then lead them to launch SKIP in 2016. Not just wanting to start a business, they wanted to make a difference in the world.
The mission was to make it easy to create positive change through ethical consumerism, local/global connections and the fostering of dreams.
As the journey began, they thought of opening a bricks and mortar store in Kelowna, British Columbia. They wanted to source unique clothing and products that were nothing like the fast fashion that slapped them in the face every time they had to buy anything for their (fast) growing girls.
As they continued, it became clear that their dream was bigger, they wanted to reach further and certainly their idea was way bigger than what a small store in a small (yet beautiful) town could hold. Living in a world that offers the ability to send your message to the far reaches was something they couldn’t pass up, as they knew that SKIP would be the springboard for not just their dreams to come true, but for everyone’s dreams and passions to be realized.
