EMPOWERED WOMEN EMPOWER WOMEN
Being an entrepreneur isn’t always easy, ups and downs are part of the journey, but one thing is for sure, meeting women that follow their dreams and go through the same challenges you go through are always an inspiration.
We are a community, we support each other in any way we can so why not showcase their projects and brands instead of just showing models and girls we might not feel identified with.
So… meet our first girl, Carolina Baena from JetLagMode. Check this amazing brand and Carolina’s unique style using her products and ours.
Q/A with Carolina Baena from Jetlagmode
WHAT IS JETLAGMODE:
Jetlagmode is a conscious brand that seeks to rescue the local Latin American art & technics by working with artisans and creating products that are 100% handmade. But that's not all, we want to help our planet too, which is why we use recycled materials to make our very special pieces.
WHO AND WHAT IS YOUR MAIN INSPIRATION?
My inspiration are all those incredible places I have been blessed to visit in my life. The colors and textures I find in every little market, in the clothes of the locals and in the art of every street corner. When deciding the name of my company I immediately thought about "JETLAG". JETLAG is a feeling that is usually associated with traveling, but instead of looking at it as a negative aspect I looked at it in a positive way; for me Jetlag means all the butterflies you get in your stomach before going to any new place, JETLAG is that happy feeling that any new travel adventure can bring.
Believe in your dreams, believe in your passion! It’s not easy when you're starting, you have to face so many problems and barriers, but that's part of the process of being an entrepreneur and every step it will be magical. Every difficulty you face makes us grow, learn and finally bloom as a flower.
My passion is my motor, let it be yours.
WHY COLLABORATE WITH OTHER BRANDS?
I believe we are stronger together! Many designers prefer to do their own thing and just fight for their brands and goals, for me having a tribe is the most powerful tool there is. Having the clarity that there's space and opportunities for everybody makes all the difference, competition is great but it doesn’t mean that because someone does good the other one will fail. For me, the most important thing is create and maintain a group of talented friends who support and empower each other.
WHICH EARRINGS ARE YOUR YOUR BEST SELLER?
I always have best sellers in each collection, and every time is different. But these two designs are THE STARS!! People keep asking for them and apparently they are never bored of these pieces of art.
KON-DOR BAG CRUSH?
The Mini Kori Bucket is my fave! It’s practical, modern and has a lot of space for a mini bag. As a woman and mom on-the-go I always need space in my handbags (you'll find many funny surprises inside!) so even though its mini it can carry a lot.
The quality is incredible, I have checked every little detail and I love it all, but mostly the colorful accent of the artisanal handle. LOVE IT ❤
