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!
