How Bleumers came to be
Laurie Bulman was inspired to create a bloomer type short seven years ago when she made the move to south Florida. There, in a small hidden-away thrift store, she found and fell in love with bubble-like linen shorts. With elastic along the thighs and a drawstring around the hips, this was the perfect short. She wore them so much she was finally told by her local cleaners, “Sorry, they cannot be saved.” It was a sad day.
Here was the dilemma: she could not find a similar short anywhere she looked. Time went by. She brainstormed and became obsessed with how the bloomer was created in the 1800s; and about the woman, Amelia Bloomer, who was associated with the bubble-like pants. The feminist movement, dress reform – freedom to wear something other than a long heavy skirt when riding a bicycle.
Laurie and her partner Vik are continuing the legacy of the Amelia Bloomer by designing bold and comfortable pants, shorts, skirts, dresses and accessories that will become staples in your closet. Our clothes are versatile, fun, playful, and hip!
