Maker Story

Right As Rain

November Rain Maker Mary Seelen, a busy mother of four, had a sunny idea to protect women from downpours. She could only find rainwear that was bulky, unbecoming, and not built to last—leading to wasteful plastic production and disposal. She dreamed up a new kind of garment that would work for all women and be kinder to Mother Earth, too.

Her waterproof ponchos pack up small enough to fit in a drawer or handbag and unfold in a flash. The modern and cheerful patterns and colors are printed with non-toxic inks and by using an eco-friendly waterless method. And unlike the typical toss-away type, these ponchos feel soft and breathable and have heat-sealed seams, sturdy snaps, and a heavy-duty zipper to amp up durability. Mary even thought about what happens behind you, so the ponchos are designed to provide extra room in the back to better fit over a coat or backpack, or add protection against wet benches and surfaces.
