Marcia Miktuk, Inventor of patented Flip-Hem®
I’ve been in marketing communications for over thirty years and with a degree in graphic design, I love to create. A few years ago, I created in a new and different way.
I had a pile of pants that needed to be re-hemmed because I wanted to wear them with different height shoes. Most days I wear pants to work and I’ve always done my own hemming. I walked by those pants and kept procrastinating because I knew once I re-hemmed, I would want to wear them with a different heel height!
I was determined to figure out a way to make my pants permanently adjustable — quickly and easily. I wanted a permanent solution that would change the length of my pants as quickly as I could change my shoes. One quiet evening, the idea popped in my head. I ran to the recycling bin to get materials to test the idea. Once I saw that it would work, I knew this product would solve the age-old dilemma of pant length and provide significant savings to pant manufacturers by reducing SKUs.
