About Us

Katy’s Story

Katydid Wholesale is the brainchild of designer and entrepreneur Katy Messersmith. Katy began her journey into fashion back in 2002 while volunteering at a prenatal clinic in Ghana. After her luggage was lost, Katy sprang into action – collaborating with local seamstresses to create vibrant wrap skirts and playful shoulder bags. That experience lit a real creative spark in Katy, and she continued to design and create unique shirts and bags when she returned to her home in Dallas, TX.

Today, Katydid Wholesale is an innovative brand of cute and trendy apparel, accessories, and gifts. From stylish trucker hats to graphic tees with flair, Katydid Wholesale offers the best products for adventure-seeking, fun-loving women.

Katy’s work ethic and innate sense of fashion transformed Katydid Wholesale into the business it is today: an emerging leader in wholesale apparel and accessories for women who want to look good while having fun. Katydid Wholesale has grown into a multi-million dollar brand and was recently named in the prestigious Inc. 500 list as one of the fastest-growing private companies in the USA.

Our warehouse in the Dallas design district offer shirts, hats, totes, phone rings, jewelry, and more at unbeatable prices. At Katydid Wholesale, you’re guaranteed to get the best products at the best prices for your valued customers.
