My name is Chris Avila, and I run the business side of things at M.Grey. I would like to welcome you to the journal of M.Grey Designs. Here Molly and I will post about exciting news, share our thoughts, and develop a sense of community among all of the fantastic people that support what we do.
It has already been quite a journey to get to this point. Almost 2 years ago I had the idea to make ties out of Molly's watercolor fabrics. For a while, we bounced around, producing them ourselves or hiring local seamstresses. But this winter break we decided that we would go for it. Since then, Molly and I have learned that starting your own business is a lot more than having an idea and a passion. It requires developing a business model, working with fabric houses and manufacturing offices, and keeping close track of money. Starting a business takes patience and pragmatism, but we are undeterred and so excited for what is to come.
To many more journeys with you all!
