“At the beginning of Covid, I was graduating from the University of Delaware. My boyfriend broke up with me, every exciting end of the year plan we had was canceled, ‘real life’ was supposed to be starting, and I couldn’t handle it. I needed to find something to keep me going so I jumped on the tie dye trend and fell in love with the dyeing process. My creations soon became the reason why I got out of bed in the morning. I started selling on Instagram and to my surprise, people loved them. At the same time, I accepted a corporate job because I thought that’s what I was ‘supposed’ to do. But the way I felt when I was creating my clothing was too overwhelming to just have as a hobby. I knew I was meant for something special. After a lot of brainstorming alongside my astounding team, we came out with our first line and donated 10% of our sales to a nonprofit for suicide prevention.” Ellie Haney, Hanesie Founder
A light breakfast and coffee will be served.
