★ sweet elite sponsor spotlight ~ The Turnip Seed Co! ★

I am a big fan of the totally custom sorority & preppy caps at THE TURNIP SEED CO! They have a popular Etsy shop and now a new website as well. You can pick your cap color • pick your greek letters color & pick your sorority name colors. It’s easy as 1-2-3 to have the cutest individual cap for you and your big/little. Perfect for REVEAL. I recently chatted with owner Reva at The Turnip Seed Co to get the inside scoop on their fab greek business! 


SS: How did you come to start The Turnip Seed Co and why did you choose to sell Greek merchandise?

TTSC: I went to graduate school I got a job in textiles. It was more of a research job. Soon I realized that I would much rather make things than research them. I remembered how much fun I had using the embroidery machine at school and decided that I wanted to embroider hats. College will always be an amazing time in my life and selling Greek merchandise is a way for me to stay close to my college days. Each time I make a sorority hat I’m taken down memory lane. 

SS: What makes your hats stand out in the crowded sorority marketplace?

TTSC: I looked around myself and there wasn’t a lot of sorority baseball caps around. I know I like wearing hats when I’m having a bad hair day and I couldn’t find any. The ones I did find, only came in one color and one design. The Turnip Seed Co. strives to offer a wide variety of designs and color customization. This way you can make sure your hat matches any outfit or theme! 

SS: What’s your favorite style or type of cap design?

TTSC: Oh, this is a tough question. But, my favorite style is the STATE outline with either Greek letters or a monogram. Also the hats we’ve completely made from scratch, such as the white eyelet hat. I love representing my own state and I’ve very proud to be a local business. As for the white eyelet hat, I LOVE pattern and textured textiles. I feel like wearing a pattered hat is an easy way to add texture and depth to your outfit. 


SS: What’s the funniest or craziest thing that’s ever happened at The Turnip Seed Co?

TTSC: Everyday is an adventure here, but I think one of the funniest times is when our hat steamer came in! We ordered it from China, so it was delivered in a giant crate. It was about 3 ft wide, 5 ft long, and 5 ft tall. We were lucky enough to have movers there to help us. It took 4 grown men to make an action plan and them lift and push the machine into a 15 point turn to just make it inside without going through the wall. It was a miracle that no was hurt, the machine did not get bumped, and all the walls stayed intact!

SS: Does your company have any philanthropy involvement?

TTSC: We have donated some items to sorority silent auctions. And we are looking into donating more to nonprofits. I am doing a lot of research now to make sure that what we donate will go to helping the cause that the nonprofit stands for.  

SS: Do you have any exciting new plans or new products on the horizon for 2015?

TTSC: Oh yes! We have all the machinery now to make hats from scratch. We are going to be releasing some amazing new designs soon!
