Designs for the field, the street, your life.
SHEILAH RUPPERT has always been fascinated with color, pattern and design, and she has previously run two successful businesses combining this love with her talent for sewing. With the help of her sister-in-law, owner of Body Double Swimwear, Sheilah got up to speed quickly with the brightly colored world of spandex. An athlete in her own right, she knew the boost she felt wearing something fun and comfortable during workouts, and saw an opportunity in the local girl's lacrosse market to add her flair to what was already being done there. What began on the lacrosse field, soon caught fire wherever the action was happening, from the beach to the yoga mat.
Today, not only is she at the tournaments and competitions, talking to girls and women about what THEY want, SHEILAH still designs all her products, which have expanded to include sporty and fun pieces for a wide range of female athletes, and even those of us that just want to look like one!
Spunkwear is headquartered near Annapolis, on the eastern shore of Maryland, and all of Spunkwear's high quality, spandex products are MADE IN THE USA! As Spunkwear has expanded, Sheilah hires the athletes that she meets as well as the Mom's on the sidelines! The excitement continues as they look forward to what comes next...
