How in the world did we get here...

"Well, it's been a long and interesting Journey. Meghan and I have known each other for two years now. We were never the best of friends, but both mutually respected each other for what we did and were involved with. One night, at a Denim themed party, I had the idea to make recycled Jeans into beanies. I called it the 'Jeanie'. I continued to go around, and obsessively ask people if they liked the idea. They did, and then I began to ask people would you start this business with me." - Kirk 

"One day at a party I heard Kirk talking about the idea of the 'Jeanie'. At that point I know that Jeanie needed to become a thing. The next quarter I was in an entrepreneurship class that the goal was to start a business. I convinced Kirk to drop out of his major, and start Jeanie with me. It was definitely one of the biggest risks I have ever taken in my life, but the last few months of starting Jeanie has been an exciting time" - Meghan

Flash forward roughly an entire year and here we are launching our website! It has been a rollercoaster of emotions, but Jeanie has been an incredible creative outlet for us, and a new fire to our lives. Please let us know how you think we are doing, and reach out to us with any ideas, collaborations, concerns, you name it.
