Hello! My name is Samantha. I am 16, and I am the CEO of The Parsi Company. The Parsi Company is dedicated to producing frugal and eco-friendly products inspired by WWII.
The Parsi Company was created in 2014. It began with the help of the Young Entrepreneurs Academy, a program committed to teaching young teens how to start a successful business and make money. Through the program, I created an intense and realistic business plan and had the opportunity to pitch my business in a 6 minute presentation to local investors – and I earned $1,275 plus a trip to Boca Raton, Florida!
The Parsi Company was created with “use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without” in mind, combined with today’s natural and eco-friendly trends. So many times, frugal is partnered with “cheap” and eco-friendly paired with “expensive.” I hope my products break those misconceptions and combine both with versatile prints for every kitchen and taste.
I began The Parsi Company because of my love for history, frugality, and natural products. The ReTowel was a unique way to do this.
“Parsi” means “unwilling to spend money” and is the root word of the word “parsimony.”
