Paige Madison Collection

Out of all the skills I’ve learned, I learned the most important aspect of whatever you are doing and of any workplace, is character. Extremely early in my career the idea that a successful business is one where people have character and collaborate, was solidified. You can train people to do many skills, but you cannot train their heart. Design is not heartless work; no work should be. When peoples heart is in it and they work well with those around them, it not only creates a good product, but it sustains good people. I want to create somethings that people are happy to be a part of and where people thrive off each others good energy and kindness. In result, designs will be strong and will serve customers well.

As I bring to life The PM Collection, my goals are not just to produce a good product and grow a brand. But I will do so with integrity and kindness. I look forward to growing this brand, and I am fortunate to have so many that want to watch it grow with me. Each item is handmade, hand-packaged, and handled by myself all the way until it’s time to ship. Everything about this brand is done so with heart because I whole heartedly love this process.
