Mary Jane Griffiths – HIPRAP Founder
The idea came to me when I became aware of how many times my phone would ring and how often I would miss calls trying to fumble for it.
I started wearing my phone at the waistband of whatever article of clothing I was wearing. I wanted to keep it close and accessible. From yoga pants, to skirts to bathing suits my phone always sat at my hip inside my waistband.
I also had the same problem at work. As a nurse we are required to carry phones and I was always misplacing mine. When I carried it in my scrubs pocket it would always weigh them down, so again I would place it at the top of waistband.
The phone was not secure just sitting in the waistband. So I started to search for something that could hold my phone and other small items that would be pretty and stylish.
I wanted something easy, I did not want to deal with buttons, zippers or Velcro. I wanted something that would be secure but also allow me to have quick easy access.
During my search I only found athletic hip apparel. I couldn’t find anything that was stylish that could become part of my outfit.
When I couldn’t find what I was looking for, I decided to make it myself, which started the process of HIPRAP.
I wanted to create a product that was fashionable and functional at the same time. I also wanted it to be versatile, something you could wear to the gym but also with a skirt for a night on the town.
I took my mom and my idea to Nordstrom’s. I tied a pretty scarf around my waist and placed my phone inside and said “this is what I want to create”.
Through many prototypes, trial and error I have finally come with a design patent product that I am proud to call the HIPRAP.
