When Elonka Perez got bored with the over-used patterns available to decorate her son’s bedroom, she started designing her own items.
What started out as a small endeavor has become a booming business. Elonka Nichole Limited, based in Federal Way, now sells bibs, blankets, pillow cases, seat belt covers and diaper bags across the country.
She is best known for her Mimi blanket for babies and tots made out of the best Minky Chenille fabric on the market. Moms loved the super soft blanket so much, Perez made a queen-size version for adults.
Find Elonka Nichole Limited blankets at Healthy Reflections (4545 Point Fosdick Drive N.W., Gig Harbor), Heaven Sent (1200 S. 324th St., Federal Way) and other select retailers, or online at elonkanichole.com.
