Founders Curtis & Shawna of The Swanx in Las Vegas at the WSA Sanita display
Lately it seems as if there is no good news about local businesses. Empty storefronts and “Going Out Of Business” sales are a common sight in cities and towns across America. But at The Swanx headquarters in Puyallup, Washington business is thriving.
Curtis and Shawna, founders of The Swanx, have pioneered a technique that combines the quality of Sanita handcrafted clogs (as well as other footwear styles) with the work of accomplished artists. They are proud to employ a fantastic team of brilliantly talented, local artists with no outsourcing involved!
The idea of hand painting clogs came from Shawna, a nurse in the Tacoma area, who always enjoyed wearing colorful scrubs; but thought her plain black clogs needed something more. She and her husband Curtis work full time with local area artists to create fabulous hand painted designs sold exclusively at www.TheSwanx.com. Their unique creations attract customers from across the globe that are looking for something both fashionable and unique in this era of mass production.
“We have worked hard to develop the right formula for our collection, the perfect paint and the most beautiful designs,” says Curtis. “But one thing that was never in question from the day we started was our canvas. We chose Sanita Footwear, the original clog company. You can’t beat hand craftmanship and over 100 years experience.” The Swanx also have recently added Zipz canvas shoes to their repertoire and have exciting plans for more varieties of footwear options coming soon!
The Swanx company continues to beat the odds even in the current down economy; growing every month, while bringing comfort and style to thousands of happy feet. It’s no wonder The Swanx company motto is “Have Fun On Your Feet!”
