|Laura & Summer|
How did Salt & Pepper tees come about?
Laura: I kept seeing a lot of graphic tees out there, but I didn’t love them. I knew that I could take that concept and put my own creative spin on it. I already had some connections to make it happen pretty easily, like a screen printer, photographer and web designer. I knew I needed to team up with someone who had a really good eye for fashion. Summer was a perfect fit to bring it all together. We came up with designs, searched for the best fitting tees, and Salt & Pepper was born!
What would you say has been your biggest inspiration along the way?
Our biggest inspirations come from what we are seeing now in the fashion world, and doing our best to keep things fresh and current. We are also very inspired by our surroundings here in Southern California. We want our tees to be fun, casual, but also stylish.
What are some of your biggest goals moving forward?
We have wanted to continually stay true to our concept from the beginning. Simple designs, simple colors, that can be paired with anything and everything. Our plan is to release new tees every season. And the possibility of either a kids line or a mens line has been talked about.
How would you describe your personal style?
Laura: My favorite outfit has always been jeans and a white or black tshirt. Then of course styling it up with great shoes and accessories! I also love layering with a leather jacket or fun kimono. So, my style summed up is great basics with a bit of edge.
Summer: I love anything from a comfy pair of sweats to a fun lace dress. My mom uniform is usually a great fitting tee with jeans, or harem pants and a flannel or denim shirt tied around my waist. I never spend a lot of money on my clothes but will splurge on shoes. Foot comfort is everything!
Whats something that you've learned from starting your own business?
We are both moms that have always worked one way or another. We have both independantly freelanced and worked with small businesses. So in a way, we already knew the basics of starting a company. But, of course there’s always more to learn! With Salt & Pepper, we’ve learned so much about t-shirt manufacturing and screen printing. Its amazing how much work actually goes into making such a simple product!
If you could have any super power what would it be?
Laura: That’s a tough one! I think time travel would be really amazing. To go back to certain times in history would be the coolest!
Summer: hmmm- I would have to agree with Laura. There are some really fun childhood memories that are so blurry and vague. I would love to be a kid again and see the world that way.
Whats something that is top priority on your bucket list?
Laura: Learn to sail!
Summer: Learn to cook! I’m horrible!
