Q: The product margins you mentioned were some of the best I’ve heard from any Shark Tank entrepreneurs. How do you keep your costs so low at the time of your appearance? How glad were you that the Sharks asked this question?
We do have really great raw profit margins, but there are a lot of other things that go into our products besides the costs mentioned. We spend months designing each and every piece in our line with a very specific story and inspiration. It can take up to a year from a design concept to a perfected collection so that all must be considered–time is money.
