It all started in 6th grade when IMPWEARhome founder, Tracy Krauter, won the Singer Sewing Contest after taking her first sewing class. After that, she sewed everything — clothes, beanbag chairs, tents, tailored jackets, even jammies for all the kids in the neighborhood.
In 1991, Tracy started IMPWEARkids — and clothed several generations of Pacific Northwest kids in reversible, bomb-proof play-wear including her own three boys. She taught art in Seattle Public Schools so kids could learn to make lemons into lemonade — the way all artists and entrepreneurs do.
At IMPWEARhome, we are proud to be part of the community of makers in Seattle. We are inspired to make functional things that are beautiful, unique and kind to people and our planet. We love transforming materials into useful products that become part of people’s lives.
We enthusiastically embrace “slow design.” We believe that less is more and offer you quality that lasts. Inspired by nature, we use the best and safest materials because we value you and our shared environment. Our products are designed to last and when it is time to retire them, they are biodegradable.
We live life to the fullest. We cram every minute with fun, play, work. We make fail-proof products that hold up to your projects, your adventures, and your dinner parties. We don’t believe a little spilled milk (or wine) should stop the joy.
