Meet Lauren

Hello everyone! My name is Lauren Wilson, I currently reside in Farmington Hills, Michigan. I have a husband, three children, and a 10-pound dog named Gus! A little bit about my business: I started a clothing line called LovePeaceThreads in September 2020. The company was born during covid because I was looking for extra income to send my three kids to private school so that they could be in an in-person learning environment. 

During this time, the tye-dye trend was also starting to make a comeback. As a creative soul, I began putting my own ideas into motion and started tye dying clothing. The clothing includes T-shirts, sweatshirts, and sweatpants. I also sell beanie hats and a variety of different baseball caps. I am blessed to be able to say that business has really taken off and it’s something that I have become passionate about. I love being able to customize the shirts, sweatshirts, and sweatpants for each customer as well. 

Each item of clothing is hand-dyed by me, and each has a special touch to it. Even though I started this business to get extra income, it has become a full-time job and I am excited to see what the future holds as I continue to grow in the business and reach all ages of audiences. You can find me on Facebook and Instagram. Please stop by and say hi! Stay tuned for the launch of my website, which will be coming very soon!
