Shapeshifters started as a single listing on an Etsy store shared by rainbow-flavored couple Eli and Krista with two other roommates in a small apartment off of the J line in Brooklyn. Now it's a full-blown online store with an industrial studio space in Brattleboro, Vermont, with coverage on Buzzfeed and a feature in the local paper, The Commons.
Eli and Krista are the couple behind the scenes, designing and testing product, hand-making and fulfilling all of the orders, maintaining our social media, answering customer questions, vending at local-ish conventions, running giveaways, and doing the thousand other little jobs involved in running a small business.
Eli is a nonbinary Southwestern native with a passion for languages, numbers, and sewing.
Krista is a genderqueer Northeastern native with a passion for theater, details, and organization.
And they're both passionate about bringing everyone safe, effective, comfortable, and fashionable garments that allow everyone, no matter their needs, to express their gender in a way that brings them joy.
