1998.. Carole Eckles (owner) was a stay at home mom, while Tim Eckles (owner) worked to provide for a family of five.
It was difficult to find CUTE, AFFORDABLE leotards for their THREE daughters.
Carole was taught to sew by her mother when she was a young girl, so she decided to make her daughters their own leotards. While attending Kips Gymnastics, Corona CA the girls were approached by parents and fellow teammates about their new leotards. Soon… Carole was asked to make custom designs for other gymnasts.
The k-Bee team may all have individual titles yes… but when it comes to design we ALL pitch in. We could have a monthly meeting on new fabrics, or it could be a quick, “HEY do you like this!” Depending on the complexity, we can have new designs in as little as 1 hour!
