Our Story


Podcast Interview

Listen to my podcast interview with ReddyYeti to learn more about how I started SLYK Shades and my journey up to this point.

 

My Story

SLYK Shades was born through struggle and determination. Beginning in January 2017, I began suffering from chronic illness due to damage caused by a prescribed "medication". After no longer being able to continue my job as an accountant, I knew I had to find an outlet for distraction and creativity. I began teaching myself fashion design through YouTube tutorials and SLYK began to take shape. As my recovery has been progressing, creating my own brand has left me with a sense of real purpose and fulfillment. SLYK Shades helps to showcase my increasing love for nature which has definitely been a big part of my recovery. I hope to inspire others to never give up and to follow their dreams. Everyone has their own life struggles and internal battles and it is important to be there for each other.

Mission

Our mission at SLYK is to provide premium quality products while spreading positive messages to the most important part of our company, our customers. Customer satisfaction is guaranteed and we hope you become a part of the SLYK family. We are also committed to donating a portion of all sales to greater causes. We are currently partnered with One Tree Planted, planting one tree for every product sold and are also excited to announce our partnership with Calmer Choice here on Cape Cod. 

Calmer Choice partners with schools and community organizations across Cape Cod to deliver a low-cost prevention program that equips children with a suite of skills to increase inner resilience, reduce the impact of stress, manage emotional responses, learn self-control and increase their sense of well-being.

Please reach out with any questions or comments. We would love to hear from you!

Thank you to all who have supported us in our journey!
