Treya Root, LLC is seeking a designer to develop patterns and prototypes for a new active fashion line. The designer should be flexible and be able to bring to life the owners’ vision. Familiarity with active wear and related fabrics such as supplex lycra would be preferable. However, the owners of Treya Root are much more interested in finding a good fit for their team. Treya Root’s vision is to have all products sewn by hand in the United States. Further, they intend to offer partial ownership to all employees in key positions. A portion of all sales will be donated to green charities (yet to be determined). The position with Treya Root is on a contract basis with the option for future growth with the company. Please email a cover letter and resume to treyaroot@gmail.com.
