"As a young mother and entrepreneur, I believe we should all be more careful about the planet and how we treat it. I am very into sustainability and producing carefully for the earth. Therefore, I do not encourage high-volume production but rather boutique quantities. This way, our customers could feel unique and special and Made-To-Order is a big part of our brand's philosophy."
