American Made Since 2012

Rachel Daly

Broomfield, Colorado
With Circuitry, I brought together my love for design and my passion for sewing. Each stamp is hand-carved, each headband machine-sewn by me.

Tell us about your business.

Circuitry began with a spark of inspiration and has evolved into what you see here -- a line of unique accessories, made in the USA with the most comfortable cotton fabrics and non-toxic fabric ink. Design ideas come from the world around me -- inspired by my friends, fashion trends, as well as my own passions. Once I have a design in mind, I research and sketch and skew until I find the best style and size for my headbands. Then, I carve the design myself. All headbands are machine-sewn by me in my studio. I specialize in yoga headbands and arm warmers. My designs also include popular motifs, astrological signs, woodland creatures and other animals, and focus on the passions of women -- photography, sewing, yoga, reading, horseback-riding and more. I also make fabric jewelry, perfect for moms of babies, especially breastfeeding mothers. I love coming up with new designs -- I plan to continue expanding my etsy shop as well as branching out into brick and mortar stores.

What's the best business advice you've received?

To keep going. There are so many roadblocks, but as long as you don't give up, the possibilities are endless.
