AMY PETERS | owner
hard work, or industry, has been built into my DNA by those who are closest to me. I grew up in a small farming community in Independence, Oregon and began picking strawberries at age 9 to earn extra money for school clothes. my parents allowed the extravagant purchase of a pair of Guess jeans (with the zippers at the ankles) and thus began my love affair with "premium" denim. I later attended Oregon State University and graduated in 1996 with a degree in Business Administration and a minor in Apparel, Interiors, Housing and Merchandising.

I started working for Nordstrom as a salesperson in the BP department when I was a sophomore in college. upon graduation the Salem store manager offered me a management position. in 1999 I moved to Seattle to be an assistant buyer - it was the adventure of a lifetime! when I became a national buyer for Nordstrom Rack in 2003 I was introduced to a buyer named Kimiko who upon our first meeting said to me, "my sister's name is Amiko. Amy's are very industrious." at every turn I found mentors and friends during my time at what I consider to be the best retailer on the planet.

​my husband and I married on 10/10/10 and our first daughter was born in August of 2011. we moved to Olympia in 2013 when I was 8 months pregnant with our second daughter. a year passed and I found myself craving community, connection, and a way to merge my former corporate life with my new life as a wife and mother. industrie clothiers was born and the rest... is making history.
