We are Lois and Lesley. We started our journey 15 years ago training to become flight attendants looking for adventure and have remained friends ever since. We bonded over our love of candy, creativity, exercise, and laughter. After the events of 9/11 compromised our work environment we needed to come up with a better way of living and working that worked for us. Being entrepreneurs provides us with the peace of mind that we are in charge of our own success. With our feet now firmly on the ground we have started a new journey. A year ago we came up with a creative solution for an everyday problem. A Perfect Pocket. Our tenacity, work ethic and 100% commitment to our product ensures us that not only will A Perfect Pocket get off the ground, but it will reach the skies as we once did!
We researched hypoallergenic adhesives and found 3M.
They were able to provide us with 35 samples of skin safe adhesives.
We put the 35 adhesives through rigorous tests of intense workouts, hot yoga, long sweaty runs and the shower afterwards.
We were able to narrow it down to four adhesives.
We could not rely on our opinion alone, so we went out and found 16 focus groups to test the final four adhesives under various conditions.
We had our idea, and we had our adhesive. Now we needed to find a manufacturer in the USA that would meet our high quality standards to put them together and make A Perfect Pocket. After 10 months and many manufacturers, we finally found one.
With time, patience, and lots of communication, we finally got A Perfect Pocket! We ended up with a perfect 3 3⁄4” x 4 3/8” water-resistant, lightweight, flexible, comfortable pocket that was exactly what we envisioned a year ago.
