Our Story

YouCustomizeIt is a family-owned business that started with a dream. Our co-founder and owner, Narmin Parpia, always had the life goal of starting her own business.

Growing up in Tanzania, her mother owned a renowned custom clothing store that kindled Narmin’s love for fashion and fabric.

Customers would stop in and select a dress style from pattern counter catalog.  They would then select fabric from the 100's of bolts in the store.  Narmin's mom would then create the pattern, cut & sew the dress..

This led Narmin to study and appreciate prints, patterns, colors, and fabrics.

The love for custom products and designing something special for people runs in the family so does the entrepreneurial spirit. 

 

 

However, Narmin’s path was not so straight-forward. After migrating to North America from Tanzania as a teenager she pursued an education in chemical engineering, which led her to a career in the oil and gas industry.

While that next chapter of her life was centered around her career and supporting her family as a wife & mother, she never let go of her passion for fabrics and designs.

This passion grew until she could no longer ignore it. Narmin dreamt of her own company; one where, drawing off her strengths, the creative and analytical pieces of her could be  fused together in beautiful harmony.

And out of that dream, YouCustomizeIt was born.

For Narmin it was always important that her business was made on the grounds of designing for people, and making sure the quality product they received was just the way they had dreamt it.
