Geraldine Blanchot and Kristen Dettoni started pattern Pod in early 2013. They met while working at True Textiles, and over the years formed a bond that revolves around their love of design, color and just being together and having fun.
With their combined 31 years experience in the textile industry, they have seen over 1,000 textile mills shut down with over 700,000 unemployed workers having to reeducate themselves for different industries. Watching this happen over the course of many years, they decided to take their fate into their own hands… but what to do exactly?
While working as designers, they noticed that they had an incredibly high output for designing, producing over 300 designs a year each. Customers only had placements for about 10% of the designs produced and the remaining 90% of the designs were shelved, leaving thousands of dollars left behind. The reason for the volume is simply to provide options and variety, so what do you do with the remaining 90%, you start a business that utilizes all the designs you produce – Eureka, we are on our way!
After months of research, the website was launched, offering patterns for consulting purposes, proprietary ownership, and royalty free options for personal use and licensing.
The designs can be used on almost any product you desire and are suited to a variety of markets.
Customization is the wave of the future so jump on and join us for the ride of our lives.
