How it Started

Hey there! My name is Barbie Porter and I started Sun Mountain Threads back in the summer of 2021 while on maternity leave after having my second baby. When friends & family would come in from out of town they would ask where to find a Woodland Park t-shirt to take back home. Not having a lot of options to choose from I decided to create my own! Having a degree in Fashion Merchandising, apparel has always been a love of mine! I worked up a few designs and partnered with a nearby screen print shop sourcing high quality t-shirts and applying a long lasting print. I began selling at our local farmers market during the summer of '21 here in Woodland Park. Once the summer ended and I was back at my Corporate job I always had my little summer t-shirt business in the back of my mind. With a super supportive and encouraging husband I made the decision to leave the corporate world in April of 2024 to explore what I have always wanted to do- have my own shop! So here we are taking Sun Mountain Threads to the next level one step at a time.
