People are often ask what inspired me to start Artisanne and I have shared my story on the website. One of the highlights of Artisanne is meeting other entrepreneurs, often women, and discovering what led them to start their business. One is Jennie Hogg of Lois Avery (www.loisavery.com) who I was introduced to by the lovely Natasha of Wear and Where.
When Jennie and I first met, we talked for hours about beautiful design, travel and the fusion of creativity and practicality that make certain items truly unique.
