“I’m hoping to give my customers quality denim and a friendly shop environment that not only brings positivity but also [provides] the

upmost customer service!” -Cara Eckles, Owner

Rizz Denim is a hand-distressed shop that takes existing items and hand alters them turning each item into a one-of-a-kind, unique and fashionable piece. Due to the nature of this craft, the shop works on a pre-order basis, allowing customers to choose exactly what they want. Occasionally offering pieces like bleached flannel, they specialize in distressed denim for boys and girls along with distressed leggings with the option to add on the acid-washed look. They will also be adding jeweled leggings to their shop selection very soon. Drops happen every two weeks to allow each piece the attention and time it requires.

Owner, Cara Eckles, opened her shop two years ago inspired by her love of distressing denim. She has been distressing her own denim for years so she simply, in her own words, “decided to make a hustle out of it.” She now gets to see her own babes as well as her customers and reps rocking her hand- distressed denim! In the development and growth of her shop, she hopes to provide quality denim to her customers while also offering a friendly shop environment with positivity and great customer service.

The shop is named after Cara’s daughter, Charisma, whose nickname is “Rizz.” Of course, Charisma is the name and inspiration behind the shop along with her other children. Cara refuses to put her daughter’s name on anything other than the very best. As such Cara puts as much time and effort into each individual piece as needed in order for all items to reach perfection. She will not sell anything that she wouldn’t pay for herself or be willing to put on her own children. She strives to only use the best denim brands when fulfilling her orders. Cara gets especially excited to work with vintage denim – another love of hers.

As we all know, the friendships that come from being a part of the small shop world are really what keeps us with our shops and honestly keeps us sane as moms. Rizz Denim is another shop whose rep team is much like a family. Plus, what shop owner doesn’t love seeing the babes of the small shop world rocking their handmade pieces! But of course, the most important source of joy for her is her family and her children, but she also adores supporting other small shops with her shopping habits.
