It's always fun when the old hometown paper comes calling to do a profile on your success! Our founder sat down with the Livermore Independent's Patricia Koning last week.
Teresa Delfin thought nothing would ever stop her from mountain climbing, not even pregnancy. But when she was expecting her son about three years ago, she did encounter an obstacle she hadn't anticipated -- the lack of technical apparel for pregnant women.... Delfin's solution, ultimately, was to make the clothes herself. She founded Mountain Mama, a maternity adventure clothing retailer, which launched its first product line in August and won the 2010 Polartec APEX Award for design innovation and excellence. Last month Mountain Mama won the Outdoor Industry Association's highest honor, the Outdoor Inspiration Award.
