I love my sleep mask! It really helps me get better sleep. Definitely measure your head before ordering, and if you're prone to headaches and/or have a prominent nose, you might consider adding 1/2 inch. That's what I do, at least. :) Friendly & helpful seller.

About

Costumes to Lingerie!

I spent 14 years working in professional theatres, mostly in the Midwest. I worked primarily as a draper (pattern maker), and for several years also as a floor supervisor...helping to create a smooth workflow in what can be a crazy paced environment. I had been trained in costume design, so did some of that for other organizations as well.

After getting more than a little burned out, I applied for and received a Creative Renewal Fellowship from our Arts Council, and experimented with fashion design. This gave me the courage to leave my theatre job and become an entrepreneur in 2007.

I mostly earn a living by working with other small businesses to help them create their products. This involves pattern making, sample making, product analysis and a lot of paperwork...but I love it. My own brand is a way for me to exercise my own creativity and design skills, which is why I created Sweet Revenge (now rebranded to Rue Violet) in 2010.

I'm still learning and developing the brand, and if nothing else it is a really great learning experience...

  • Cathy

    Owner, Maker, Designer

    With a background in costume design and technology, I had a 14 year career in professional theatre. I now make a living creating patterns and samples, and doing product development for other small businesses.

  • Moo

    Assistant

    Moo is not involved in the manufacturing (he's stuck at home), but he's in charge of Etsy sales when I am not available. He also supervises the crock pot while I am at work. I figure it's the least he can do.

  • Jessica

    Stitcher

    Jessica is a good friend of mine, whose "real" job is a costume draper at the Indiana Repertory Theatre. She contracts for me in the summer when the theatre is dark, and I have larger orders. She has a pit bull mix, and guinea pigs!

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Yes! I make almost everything to order, so in many cases I can make a color or fabric that is not listed in that specific listing. Depends what I have in my fabric stock at any given time. Just ask!

Sizing details

I have a size chart, but please also feel free to include your measurements with your order. More info always helps.

http://rueviolet.com/size-chart-2016/

Care instructions

Almost every item lists the care/content in the description and on a label with the item. The sleep masks do not have care/content labels. They are machine or hand wash cold, air dry.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I ship every order with pink tissue and fun stickers. The shipping envelope is usually a plain white Tyvel envelope, unless it is in Priority packaging. I can add a gift card with a special message if you like!

Wholesale availability

I do offer some items at wholesale, please see my Etsy wholesale account!
