Starting a business can be overwhelming ... but we like to think of it as our greatest adventure yet.
For me, working in the product development world as a men's accessory designer for the past 15 years or more, I've put in a lot of effort launching other people's products.
I've dug deep into their design mantras, scoured the internet or marketplace looking for inspiration to develop products that fit their brand vision. It's a worthy endeavor designing products people use, either to wear or to make their lives easier and more comfortable.
And, it's a lot of fun watching a product grow from a simple idea or rough hewn sketch into a full fledged item in the marketplace.
One of the most gratifying experiences a product designer can have is seeing his or her very own creation being worn or carried by unsuspecting citizens out in the world.
Although we won't be able to sneak around the country peeking into people's windows to see our blankets cuddled up around their necks, we would love to see photos of you with your blanket, throw, scarf or other Mauch Studio product. Be sure to tag us on Instagram with #mauchstudio or @mauchstudio so we can feature you on our Instagram feed!
So why Mauch Studio?
The idea for Mauch Studio started when my mom began buying Alpaca blankets in Ecuador to sell in fundraising efforts in the US. People would come to her pop-up booth at local venues and fall in love with the blankets.
Her ability to find products that people would come back year after year for is why we started this business. Turning a non-profit idea in a small town into an online store with hopes of reaching a larger audience with the blankets and eventually other products is why we are here.
Starting our own blanket, throw, scarf and accessory business will be just as exciting for us as selling in pop-ups in a one horse town.
We hope you come to love our blankets as much as we do. If we didn't think that they were the absolutely most beautiful and cozy products out there, we wouldn't be working so hard to bring them to you.
If you ever have any questions about any of our goods, please feel free to contact us.
We look forward to sharing with you the blankets and other items that have meant so much to us!
PS. In case you are wondering how to say our name... it's pronounced like "mok"! It's from a small town in north eastern Pennsylvania which is formerly known as Mauch Chunk... a quaint town with lots of charm nestled in a valley next to one of the prettiest rivers you will ever see.
