In 2013 Lauren and Lance Stokes were using Lauren's parent's basement as a distribution centre, her mom pitching in to help pack a surprise influx of orders .
“It was all hands on deck. We were designing and manufacturing and going to market ourselves...we were growing so fast that, overnight, we just couldn’t pack the boxes fast enough,” says Lauren.

Fast forward to today, Lauren James Co. now ships their products out of an 80,000 square foot warehouse – with 35 employees and counting.
