About

Anne & Eva
We are mothers of four, soon to be five (in total that is). We met each other in Durban, South Africa, where we are living with our families since 2011. We both had a job in the Netherlands that we liked very much. After settling in South Africa we realized that of course being a mum is wonderful, but that we also missed the vibes that come with working.

Our plan

How come people don’t use these here in South Africa and how come the bags we do find are all imported?

We started brainstorming, came up with a plan and started designing and producing sleeping bags for little children. We don’t import anything because we believe that we can find everything to make a beautiful product here. Besides that we want to know the people we work with and make sure that they get paid properly.

Our journey
We discovered that starting a business is a great way getting really familiar with the country and its people. It’s an exciting - not always easy - journey. We encountered wonderful people to work with and we are using beautiful traditional Shweshwe fabric in all our designs. Releasing our first range of ‘Born To Be A Star’ products, completely designed and produced within South Africa for your little stars, makes us very proud.

Our dream
It never was our dream to be designers of our own South African label, but in retrospect, it definitely should have been. Hopefully you will think the same and like our products as much as we do!
