two sister friends
Courtney, a Californian grew up admiring the homes her father remodeled and designed. She learned what it took to run a small, independent business from him and what it means to “…love what you do and you will never work a day in your life.” She spent many years in the fashion industry after studying fashion marketing in Los Angeles, learning how to successfully run a boutique in Manhattan Beach, California. After furthering her education, she then spent numerous years in Corporate America learning the backend on how to run a successful business, while still styling her friends and family. Courtney missed the creativity of the fashion industry and knew when visiting Chelsey in Africa fell in love with the colorful fabrics, handmade goods, craftsmanship, the culture, and that she wanted to support the artisans and launch a business.
