Coffee break with Cheryl Molden of Ollie Jones

Blog feature sessions, Designers, Interviews

Today we are enjoying a coffee break with Cheryl Molden, designer and creator of the Canadian handmade line, Ollie Jones.

“My little home based business started because of frustration – I just couldn’t find pants for my son that were both comfortable and fashion forward. I always wanted to buy him leggings, but so many had bows or frills or just too plain. How could I deny my son the comfort that us Mom’s have been wearing during pregnancy, post pregnancy…..well, let’s face we would all live in them if we could. So out came the sewing machine and after cutting up a really cool Tee shirt of mine…the perfect pair of leggings were born.” – Cheryl Molden, Designer and Creator of Ollie Jones
