"...I put too much pressure on myself to be a version of “successful” that probably does not exist..."   At the beginning of 2022 and after two years of exponential growth, I’m sitting down to do our first ever financial planning session and yearly recap. It’s a bit embarrassing to admit, but I try not to pay too much attention to the financial ins and outs of Pamut… In the past, I’ve found this a stressful (and tearful) endeavor. I realize this is because I put too much pressure on myself to be a version of “successful” that probably does...

Black Women Owned Businesses - Our Top Picks!

Katherine Williford

If last year taught me anything, it’s that being a business owner is never going to NOT be a roller coaster ride! Just as soon as I felt like Pamut was on track for smooth sailing in 2020, the pandemic hit and our lives all turned upside down. Maybe that’s why entrepreneur Jes Averhart’s message of reinvention resonated so strongly with me when we met earlier this year. As so many of us have had to “pivot”, both professionally and personally, the notion of acclimating to that big space outside of your comfort zone has never rung truer.   Jes...

The Future Of Fashion Is Here, And It's Tailored Just For You.

Katherine Williford

The concept of a custom made garment isn’t new. In fact, it’s how clothing was made up until the Industrial Revolution. Since ancient times, garments were either made at home or cut and sewn to fit by small dress shops. But over just a few decades, there was a monumental shift in how clothing was bought and sold.

The Surprising Inspiration Behind Pamut Spring Collection

Katherine Williford

2020 Has Changed Me Forever An Artist's Statement, from Kat  An adventurer at heart, I've always lived my life focusing on new connections, new places, and new experiences. I felt ready to conquer the world; unafraid of the consequences of being freewheeling, spontaneous, and perhaps a bit brash. When the pandemic hit, my biggest fear wasn't the virus. It was actually the thought of losing myself and the freedom that I valued more than anything. I went into protection mode, holding that wild part of me back and tucking it away somewhere safe. I assumed that it would re-emerge easily when the...
