Hi there! We are two sisters, Abong and April, and we're the owners of Brimm. We're so happy you're here and want you to know how much we genuinely appreciate you supporting our Texas-based small business.
Behind every brand is a story and we think it's important to share ours with you. In the 1980's our parents escaped Vietnam in a fishing boat to give their children a chance at a better life. Our mom was pregnant with me (Abong) and had our older brothers with her as well. They were toddlers at the time. The stress of escaping put her into labor and I was born on the ocean. My name, Abong, comes from a city that we landed upon in Malaysia (Kualabong).
There are many details of the story that we'll skip for now but we were moved to the Philippines to a refugee camp until an American family sponsored us to the U.S. We still don't know who that family was but we are forever grateful. When we finally made it to the U.S. my parents had to start from the bottom. When they left Vietnam they literally had the shirts on their backs and a handful of photos.
Our parents didn't have many options to provide for their family so our dad mowed lawns until he could save up enough money to sell things at an outdoor flea market. Fast forward many, many years and their entrepreneurial spirit was alive in us as well. They taught us to work hard and be grateful for the blessings of everything we had in the U.S. They sacrificed so much for us so that we could have the lives that we do.
Our history is important because it's a part of who we are and it influences how we run our business. We truly feel blessed to have such amazing and supportive customers. You have left us the kindest, most thoughtful reviews and we read every single one of them. We want you to know how important you are to us and we hope that each carefully wrapped package you receive conveys that.
Our entire Brimm team is considered family. From our packing team to our photographers, we value the work that each person puts into their job. Our core beliefs include an atmosphere of kindness and personal growth.
While we have a lot of fun while working, we are also serious about getting our customers the right product at the right prices. Each style is carefully hand selected, photographed, and measured to ensure you get the best description possible. We are human and sometimes mistakes are made, but we stand behind our products and team and will do what it takes to make sure you're happy.
Here at Brimm, you are so valued and important to us. We hope to earn your business!
Abong & April
