DerbySkinz is dedicated to helping athletes all over the world achieve their dreams of looking great and letting their personality be known.
Auntie Pantie (aka Kathe) has been sewing for over 45 years and brings her sewing expertice to the derby community. She is also an artisan who now creates works of art (rearable art) out of spandex fabrics for all who desire to make a statement on the backside of their Skinz.
Nissanne skated for H.A.R.D. She is allergic to sewing needles so she does all the other stuff necessary to make DerbySkinz run like a well oiled machine.
DerbySkinz is a family owned business based out of the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania area. Our goal is to bring our personal values and ethics into our business environment. We produce and distribute high quality, distinctive apparel and accessories to the world wide roller derby community and beyond. We are dedicated to creating a unique, fun product with a commitment to keeping it reasonably priced. Honesty, integrity, hard work along with a high level of customer service is the basis of DerbySkinz.
It all began in May 2008. Auntie Pantie was making ice skating costumes for Nissanne's daughters. Nissanne said MA I need something shiny to wear for Derby. Ole Auntie P said Of course my darling daughter and began sewing.
2 Days Later: Nissanne came home from practice and said MA they all said Ohhhhhh. I need another pair. So Auntie P made her a second pair.
Next Practice: Nissanne wore them and (figuratively speaking) H.A.R.D. followed her home go figure.
June 2008-ECE: Auntie Pantie and hubby (aka APOP) headed off to Philadelphia with about 200 pairs of panties (now known as DerbySkinz) and set up a booth.
