I have always been fascinated by colours and I am often surprised by how little colour there is in the world of every day fashion.

On the other hand, I am all too aware of the disposable mass consumption the world indulges in, along with all it's vices.

So at 36, I decided it was time for a change:

I am determined to create a fashion company that  focuses on creating colourful fashion accessories that are 100% hand-made, timeless designs and made to last. No more cheap throwaways!

The other big part of the equation is the social impact: Why just run a business for profit, when you can do so much more?

The driving force behind my creativity is the knowledge that I can provide employment and fair wages to rural artisans, re-invest in their communities and educate them about business.

I am very passionate about what I do. I enjoy sharing ideas and meeting other social entrepreneurs, the more the merrier!

“Drive a nail home and clinch it so faithfully that you can wake up in the night and think of your work with satisfaction,- a work at which you would not be ashamed to invoke the Muse”
-Henry David Thoreau

In our case, it would be the needle or other fiber tool. Drive it home! And, we all thank you for your words, left here to these good folks. Invoke your Muse!
