Kimonos. Small-Batch. Handmade. One-Size. Exclusive to Urban Cowgirl & Co. all of our items are made with meticulous care, locally in AB.
My name is Linnden and I am the Owner, CEO, and Designer behind Urban Cowgirl & Co.
We are based in Lethbridge, AB, I am a mom of two, and and we are an online shop that employs local women to manufacture our label and designs.
At Urban Cowgirl, we make beautiful, handmade Kimonos. Our company employs 4 local ladies, who alongside with myself, cut, sew and make every single piece.
My business started out as an online boutique after I saw a need for a beautiful product that was designed to suit and flatter EVERY. BODY. We make women feel beautiful and confident with our handmade, one-size, pieces! Our Kimono pattern is a self-designed labour of love.
After establishing an online presence for our product with a consistent customer base, I moved the company into what is now our warehouse and shop space. We have a cute little retail area, and a 1500 square foot workshop that houses our equipment and all of our fabric.
My "WHY" are my two children. Two years ago I found myself as a single mom. I had no full-time income, I was completely starting over, and I had no clear idea of what the future held. My children are my reason for going all in. Every single day I wake up with the intention to build my business. Everyday, I do one small thing to keep us moving forward, growing, and to create something that my children can be proud of, AND to show other women that YES, they can too!
My company was literally crafted from $200, some fabric, and a sewing machine at my kitchen table! We have never taken out a business loan or any type of external funding. We continue to build and grow by our bootstrapping business principles, and a whole lot of hustle and hard work!
Today, we are a thriving family and Urban Cowgirl is my full-time job. My children are learning valuable life skills along the way as they get to watch me work in real-time, whether it be from the shop or from our home. They get to see first hand what it takes to build a business and be an entrepreneur.
Now that we have established our online shop, our retail space and our workshop, we are moving into an exciting phase with the launch of our mobile boutique!
This past fall, we purchsed our enclosed trailer which we will be transforming into a boutique on wheels so that we can bring an entirely new experience to retail. The revenues from the Build Her Business Campaign are going entirely to the build of our trailer. We can't wait to attend a market or event near you!
