Kroped opened as an Etsy shop in June 2020, based out of Los Angeles, California! Kroped is pronounced just like “crop” in “crop top” because it started with a single artist selling canvas paintings trying to raise enough money to launch a line of crop tops in all sizes, FOR EVERYONE! Our message was this – no matter your sex, ethnicity, size, or sexuality you deserve to feel beautiful in a Kroped Top! After only one month, Kroped released its first shirt design, “The Girls Room”. 6 months later, we had over 20 live designs in sizes small-5x.
A few 3D printers later we expanded! Kroped is owned and operated by one person, you may already know me as Angel! I am the one responsible for all of the designing, finishing/painting, packing of orders, and everything in between! I’m also the same person running all of our socials and customer service! Kroped is everything to me and I am so grateful to be able to sell my art full-time and fund my dreams with it! To show my appreciation, each and every order is hand-packed and made to feel like a gift to you each and every time.
After a year as a company, Kroped looks very different than when it started! Kroped has now expanded to live plants, planters, keychains, necklaces, and most noticeably earrings! Our main goal now is to get pieces our customers will love forever across the entire globe. As of March 2023, Kroped has shipped to all 50 U.S States and over 20 international countries.
As for the future of Kroped, we’re looking to hire a crew and start in-person sales. Thank you to anyone was has supported me up to this point! Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns, I’m here!
