We recently brought Lois on, as one of our Makers and were very inspired by her story 🤍
- What motivated you to start your own business?
Visibility was / is a huge challenge. A lot of people do not know about my business. Sharing my story and marketing are the way out of this.
Supply chain management is also challenge since I want to ensure that all aspects of the goods are of best quality. Most of the artisans I work with are rural folk, this poses a challenge in terms of communication infrastructure where they are located.
What has been your greatest reward?
- Seeing the growth of my own brand has been very rewarding. Getting beautiful handmade goods from my native community to my new community is very rewarding. The stories of the rural artisan woven and ‘read’ by discerning consumers is very rewarding.
