The success has motivated me to build upon this career path along several dimensions:
After running the childcare for 12 years successfully, the two passionate entrepreneurs, my husband and I, found it time to sell the business and start a new phase in our lives. We thought the time was ripe to begin a new chapter and pursue yet another dream, to reach yet another milestone.
I took a sabbatical year to travel around the world during my children’s school holidays, a wish that I had for a long time, and cherished immensely. It was during these trips, that I felt I had to follow my dream to design again. It was a great exposure to fashion from different cultures, which thoroughly enlightened me. I noticed that there was a clear gap in the market for non-conventional leather bags, and this was a gap which I just had to fill. During the 12 years when I was dedicating my time to the business, to support the family, I had no time to express my passion for fashion design.
