One of the first questions I get asked with regard to starting a new company has been, “What is the inspiration?” This has an emotional answer.
Back in 2010, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. My treatment included chemotherapy and many surgeries. This was the hardest time of my life, and all I wanted was to feel normal. After my mastectomy surgery in 2011, I had drains for 9 weeks… yes 9 weeks. So what does one do with their drain bulbs when trying to go out to the store, or to a restaurant, or work? During my recovery, I never found a good product to help me feel normal.
Fast forward 6 years. I was interested in forming a company and selling a product, but wanted it to be a product that I could be passionate about. Then it came to me. A product that would help the patient, not just the breast cancer patient but any patient, feel normal, to make life easier. I started brainstorming with my son, who was only in high school when I was diagnosed, but was a great supporter during my entire recovery. Together we designed and developed the Envi Medi-Pouch. This pouch is the perfect solution for a discreet way to stow drains, but has many features to accommodate many other patients. Features include an enlarged button hole for easy access to medical lines, zipper pocket to stow money or credit cards. Plus, it has a side zipper for ease of getting it on and off. And the best thing, is that once you are no longer in need of a medical pouch, it can easily be used for everyday use.
From there, we added the Envi-Band (Athletic Pouch) and Envi-Garter (Phone-Garter), with many other ideas in the works, like an Envi Aqua-Pouch and Envi Boot-Purse. Some products in our future include an athletic event hand warmer and more beach and patient wear.
Our tag line is STYLISH SOLUTIONS because our products can help you stow your belongings in a stylish fashion without cumbersome bags and purses. It’s the solution!
