Nina taking her first sewing class

In an attempt of understanding better Ilaria’s explanations and the technical challenges our suppliers are facing I decided that it is about time to take my first sewing class ever!

The moment I arrived this big machine seemed way too complicated for me to ever understand. But under patient supervision and endless trials to pass the thread through the needle I was ready to sew! And honestly, it was so easy and enjoyable!!

Our workshop consisted of sewing a pillow and later a small cosmetics bag. Here you can see me extremely proud of my first sewing results. And I started humming to the melodie ”one day, baby, one day, I can sew the entire business bag for ya” 😉

Everything works better with a glass of wine ;-)

Still life of a romantic evening in our house with candle light and a glass of red wine … sewing our Mojo prototype together with my husband 😉

 

After producing our first prototype we received a lot of feedback from you. Positive ones that really motivated us to continue, but also some negative comments about the size and the weight of the bag. As such we decided to take one step back and re-work the design process. Optimizing the size and the weight of the bag will be crucial before going into production.

It is our aim to fine-tune and rework the design countless times until we fall in love with our own product. That is not a small goal we set us there but we are prepared to do everything to create the perfect business bag for you 😉 But may be you can help us by naming below in the comment section the bags you carry and consider optimal in size? This would really help us designing the business bag suited to your needs 🙂

Many thanks and greetings,

Nina & Ilaria

Yes !! WE MADE IT !

Beaming with happiness and pride we felt like dancing around our apartments and jumping into the air when Annegret called us in November to announce us that we are now part of the Accelerator of the Strascheg Center for Entrepreneurship in Munich.

It all started with a small undefined idea I had during my holidays when I asked my husband if he thinks that I am crazy and he told me to go full in (note to myself: he truly is the most amazing husband J). After spending endless days and nights together with Ilaria defining an elegant fashion line for working women, spending the week before my wedding working on a first prototype and the week after my wedding preparing for the admission presentation with little sleep and endless discussions it felt like our work finally paid off.

After the presentation we were nervous and decided to focus on other topics while waiting for the result. But then Annegret called. And we just couldn’t believe it. Other people, people we don’t even know, actually believe in our idea and us! We reached a HUGE milestone!

Now we are extremely motivated and created an ambitious timeline to bring out the first prototype as soon as possible. Nonetheless it is our biggest drive to bring out a product that both Ilaria and I will carry with pride. We promise that we will settle with nothing less!

Stay tuned and subscribe to follow our adventure J
