About PurpleRainSkirts

Sales 351
On Etsy since 2014

Necessity is the mother of invention

We all have those specific events in our life that will forever affect how we view the world. One of mine was thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail in 2012. Leaving my identity behind and taking on the trail name of Purple Rain I learned simplicity, peace, and perseverance. It taught me that I didn't have to follow the traditional life path. This is my attempt to make my own in the world. While on trail, I desired comfortable practical clothes. Upon researching such items post trail I quickly found most designs were expensive and just not what I was looking for. My original design was tested on the Pacific Crest Trail in summer 2013 and I knew I was on to something. Fine tuning sewing techniques and many fabric tests later, the Purple Rain Hiking Skirt was born.
I hope you also enjoy the freedom I have found in these skirts.
~ Happy Trails~

Hi there!
Thanks for checking out my hiking skirts. I am Purple Rain, Appalachian Trail thru-hiker extraordinaire class of 2012. These skirts were inspired by backpacking, exploring nature and a love of all things simple. All skirts are handmade by me, tried, tested, and trail approved! I source my fabrics from local outdoor company factory seconds. Meaning, my selection varies as to what is available at the time. I will strive to always offer a sleek aesthetic with the occasional dash of funk. No pink leopard print here!

I welcome all feedback and suggestions as I fine tune my design. I am new to this Etsy game so please ask questions!

Keep it simple folks, put it in your pocket and let's go hiking!
