Dear fellow sloth lover,
My name is Brittany, and I, along with my husband, Andrew, run Sloth and Sloth: our very own corner of the internet where we sell clothing featuring our own designs. I would not have listed, "internet entrepreneur" as a career of choice when I was a child, but the road to owning an online business has been rewarding nonetheless.
We didn't realize it at the time, but the seed for this dream was planted back when Andrew and I were engaged and we, by happenstance, caught a documentary about a sloth sanctuary on TV while we wrapped Christmas presents. At first, I thought the idea kinda silly, but by the end of the film I was in love with sloths, and pretty much ready to bring one home as a pet. Watching the baby sloths learn to climb, chomp on vegetables, and even take tea baths opened my eyes to a whole world of cuteness that I didn't know existed. Sloths became my new favorite animal and Andrew was kind enough to get me a stuffed sloth animal as a wedding present (since having a real sloth as a pet is still illegal).
Fast forward a few years post-marriage and I got into screen printing as a side hobby. Andrew had doodled little sloth cartoons for me inspired by the stuffed animal that I so cherished, and I took these doodles and made them into prints. I made a few t-shirts, and eventually a whole slew of baby bodysuits for our little one on the way. We liked both so much we thought "hey, we could sell these!"
Thus our business was born. Andrew draws all of our cartoons, I do all of the lettering for our designs, and we love what we do. While our first ideas featured sloths, we have enjoyed expanding our designs along other avenues that equally interest us. That's what is neat about what we do; we are blessed to be able to run a business that challenges us creatively and gives us room to grow. Plus it's just really awesome knowing that we aren't the only sloth fanatics in the world.
If you are reading this, thank you for taking the time to do so, and if you buy one of our items, you're the best! We hope it puts a smile on your face.
Thank you and God bless,
