Spread Joy, Shop Small. Paris Bloom

This Small Business Saturday, we need your help! We thought we’d share some thoughts on why small business is so important and how you can help.

You know how 2020 has been; we don’t have to tell you that. This year, more than ever, small businesses are suffering and on the verge of going out of business. In fact, 62% of U.S. small businesses reported that they need to see consumer spending return to pre-COVID levels by the end of 2020 in order to stay in business.

How Small Businesses and Communities are Connected

Paris Bloom’s Made in USA dresses are a big part of our livelihood as well as that of multiple other small businesses across the United States.

Our dresses are manufactured a short drive from where many of our customers live. Every zipper, button, and hand-made stunning detail on our dresses comes from another local U.S. small business.

The money spent at Paris Bloom does not leave the country. It provides for the people and other small businesses around us in our community.

A 2018 Small Business Economic Impact Study found that for every dollar spent on small business, $0.67 stays in the local community. What’s more, small business provides jobs and creates local spending at other businesses as a result of employee spending and businesses purchasing local goods.

The lovely, unique tortoise shell buttons on the Madeline dress are sourced from a U.S. Small Business.

The Hand-Crafted, Made in USA Difference

We pride ourselves in our attention to detail, unique and classic touches, and our commitment to buy American Made and manufacture in the US. Here are some examples of how Paris Bloom supports other small businesses in the U.S.

The Adeline

We source our fabrics from US companies so we can sample it, touch it, and see how it will work for our designs before purchasing. It means you get luxuriously soft fabric like on our Adeline dress.

The Grace

We have a close relationship with our manufacturer, located down the road from us in Dallas, TX to ensure thoughtful design such as the Grace which includes pockets and pattern matching to make sure the plaid stripes align between the body and the sleeves.
