Tell us about your business.

Siblings Meryl and Brian Levy are the dynamic duo behind the clever brand. The concept was originally conceived by their father back in the 80’s, when he would gift pajamas in a jar to friends and family who were expecting. Now, years later, Meryl and Brian have adapted the idea into a more refined, modern concept; they call their Jammies “comfort wear” and have designed them to be worn inside or outside, day or night. Catering to newborns through 12 months, each Jammies garment arrives in its own reusable jar made of recycled, BPA-free plastic. After a successful launch March 1st 2013, Jammies Prêt-à-Porter is now arriving to its first retail outlets around the globe including NYC, Palm Beach, Toronto and London. Meryl and Brian hope to continue to grow the brand and ultimately partner with a US-based children's charity that would benefit from the brands support. Jammies are made in the USA in downtown Los Angeles.

What makes your business stand out?
