As a single parent, your resources in every aspect go to your child(ren) and you even feel guilty for buying something for yourself when you have the extra cash on those rare occasions. This company has always been a pipe dream lurking in the back of Ms. Chilton's mind. However, the timing was always off kilter and she lacked support from those around her. Ms. Chilton's father; her main support system, passed away leaving her a little broken, a little lost, and increasingly overwhelmed with her new responsibilities as the executor of his estate. About a year and a half later, Ms. Chilton found herself with a newborn in a very unhealthy relationship to say the least. When her son was two weeks old, she realized that her son deserved better. She loaded up her son and left with hope of a better life than what he had.
With support from her family, she was able to pull herself out of the darkness with the bright light from her son shining through. She got on her feet with an intense and exhausting full-time job. She promoted up and was able to stand on her own as a single mother. She was even able to purchase the vehicle she has always wanted following a car accident that forced her to find one that wasn't so totaled. Eventually she started to notice her son's love for fashion and that he did no hesitate to tell you his blunt opinion no matter how harsh.
Enlisting her son in a reviewer/commentator capacity and utilizing the skills acquired from previous professions (Human Resources, Customer Service, Management, and Legal), she began to make connections with manufacturers and wholesalers to branch out on her own business venture. Together they set forth to provide quality products with unique designs, exceptional customer service and a broad price range. Ms. Chilton believes that all shapes, sizes and colors are beautiful in every way which is why she strives to offer a wide variety in these three aspects. She offers the convenience of online shopping and delivery to your closet straight from the manufacturers.
Thanks to her customers' support, she was able to form the business, "Mother Filter" and become successful. To show how grateful she is for their purchases, she has implemented several rewards and discounts depending on where you shop. If you would like to support our woman owned small business, purchase products on www.motherfilter.shop or purchase products on www.etsy.com/shop/motherfilterllc.
Our mission is to deliver refined apparel to our customers at reasonable prices. We plan to achieve this by establishing connections with manufacturers and wholesalers to gain a wide variety of quality products and creating unique designs within the company while providing exceptional customer service to our Mother Filter family.
Mother Filter encompasses so much for two words. The word "mother" means several things. It is the relationship of a woman to her child just as the owner is to her son. It means to give birth to which references the birth of the company. It means to bring up with care and affection which is how you must handle a business to be successful. Filter is a little more complicated. A filter is used to remove impurities or unwanted materials. To provide quality products, you must remove the impurities from them. A business needs to be pure to survive in this dog-eat-dog world. That's why Mother Filter strives to provide its customers with as much assistance as possible through discounts, programs, and pricing.
The blue represents Ms. Chilton's son and the pink represents Ms. Chilton. When the colors are merged into one gradient color, they create purple in the middle.
The owner loved hearts ever since she was little. The heart symbolizes family, specifically mother and son as shown in the picture below.
"I think the image speaks for itself. This company was built on family and you can expect to be treated like family here at Mother Filter" according to Ms. Chilton.
