The Mitten Company

October 1, 2013 - October 10, 2017: Lifetime Sales: $49,133.36 / Total Online Store Visits: 39,385 / Total Orders: 1,166 / Average Order Value: $43.37 / Store Conversion Rate: 2.95% / Repeat Customer Rate: 21.3% / 99.9% 5-Star Reviews on YotPo

These above numbers were organically grown from the ground up, with $0 ad budget, using free social media accounts and word-of-mouth. They will easily exponentially grow more with an actual ad budget.

The Mitten Company specializes in handmade, fleece-lined mittens, hand-sewn from recycled, gently used wool sweaters. The patterns of the different sweaters combine to make each pair a unique creation, found nowhere else. Our mittens are literally one-of-a-kind, handmade in the USA creations!

We opened in October 2013 with the goal of outfitting as many women's hands as possible with the warmest mittens in the midwest. The past 4 years have shown us amazing growth, loyal customers, growing email lists and social media, and a mini mitten empire that we've built from the ground up.

The only reason we are selling in 2017 is because our CEO lost her battle with brain cancer and we've decided we cannot move forward very easily without her. She was the main sewer of mittens and her design eye could not be replicated by anyone in our immediate family. You can read all about it on our website. Please check out our blog feed for the whole story. Our customers really seemed to love the emotional connection we shared with them.

Product & Manufacturing: We completely sold out of mittens that Deb made. Although there are loads of people in the world that can create sweater mittens, we will not supply you with one. It will be up to you (the buyer) to source that manufacturing. We do have some bags of sweaters that have already been washed, dried, and felted if you are interested. We also have a die cutter for the mitten pieces.
