In the Spring of 2011, Taylor & Chloe began in the basement of our Southeast Portland home. Busy mother of four Natalie Koprowski, tired of spending too much money on poor quality hair accessories for her twin girls, decided to make her own. So she grabbed a few spools of ribbon and supplies. A few weeks later she started selling them in some neighborhood stores. We have since expanded our product line to include knit hats, bow clips, chiffon minis, headbands, poofy flower clips, and leggings for boys and girls. All of our products are twin tested and mother approved!
Before long we were in 20 stores and having trouble keeping up with demand. Late in 2012 we joined forces with our neighbor, Susan Konstantaras, who brought a savvy business sense, her eye for fashion, and her adorable son Niko to the mix. With her help we’re beginning to move beyond the Portland area, into Seattle and San Francisco.
We take great pains to keep our quality standards high. Most of our products are hand assembled here in Portland, and each item is carefully checked and re-checked to make sure it’ll hold up against whatever a set of twins can throw at them.
But what about the name?
Since we started making these products for our adorable daughters, it was an easy choice to name the company in their honor. The real Taylor & Chloe are two beautiful and talented girls, who inspire us every day.
We love great photography and are happy to be teamed up with a number of talented photographers! Our photographers are located all over the country and many are available for photo shoots. For a complete list, click here.
