In The Beginning.
I was born in the 1950s, in the era when little girls never went to bed with wet hair because it was unhealthy! (In my mother's view.) We also didn't wash our hair every day, so when we had a bath but didn't wash our hair, I wore a shower cap that my mother had made for me.
As I grew, I carried on making and using a shower cap; however, when my worn shower cap needed replacing, I was so busy with my fashion business that I thought I would just purchase a replacement. At the time, we were travelling and selling my wholesale fashion range throughout New Zealand, but at the end of five weeks, we had not found one decent replacement shower cap.
It sparked the idea to start making and selling our own Shower Caps.
DaisyBloom was Born.
So in our spare time, we started making Shower Caps, using pretty offcuts from my fashion business. My husband would do the cutting, I would sew, and then he would tediously thread the elastic! I would sell these at various craft markets around the Bay of Plenty and Auckland. Customers loved them. We soon hit 500 sold and have never looked back.
And this is (exactly) how DaisyBloom started.
