A loan helped our family to purchase inventory and buy advertising to start a business—our hope for the future.
After years of working in corporate marketing and design jobs, both my wife and I felt unsatisfied, yet we knew we have a passion for what we do and what we could offer to the world. So losing my job during COVID-19 made us stop and consider our next best steps. We decided to start a business that would be our future. We both have a talent for identifying, enhancing, and branding new product ideas. We feel we have special skills for making items more aesthetic, more relevant, more meaningful—to honestly change lives. As an inter-racial family, we are sensitive to the specific needs of those who may not have traditionally had a voice in product development and want to serve those communities with well-made yet reasonably priced and dependable products. During these times of COVID-19, the demand for these items is exceptionally high, but going forward, this is the start of offering more tailored and relevant products to a diverse market.
