GOIA BOUTIQUE ~ handmade accessories ~ Est.2008

I grew up watching my granny(mama Ica) and my mom, making clothes...sewing, crocheting knitting, embroidering and working at the loom. I’ve always been in love with sewing.
I make clothes and create patterns since I was 7 years old.
I remember I was almost six years old when I finally convinced my granny to let me sew with her mechanical sewing machine, Ileana.
Since then It became my fairyland, where I escape every time that life gets tough to create new designs.
This is not a hobby for me... nor my work, this is my life style. I don't know how to live without it.

DECEMBER 2, 2008 - April 2, 2011 : I was also making sterling silver jewelry with semiprecious stones. I used to sell them in person in various countries in Europe: Romania, Germany, Austria, Italy, Spain, France, Norway and England.
AUGUST 2011 : A few months after I moved to the United States, I opened my online shop "Goia Boutique".
Goia , it's my grandparents last name, they made the family that we are today.
CHRISTMAS 2013 : Was the last time when I saw my granny and I will never forget the happiness in her eyes telling me that I made her and the whole family very proud.
She asked me to never give up no matter how hard life may get, it almost seemed like she knew that she was not going to be here much longer to support me morally.
And as I promised to my granny :

I thank my family for all the help and the support that they keep giving me.
Thank you everyone who ordered from my shop and helped me live my dream.
I thank my granny(mama Ica) and grandpa(Momo) for being my role models and my guardian angels.

I make each product in my home based studio in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California.
I always been a perfectionist. I love to use high quality fabrics and threads and high end sewing machines and softwares.
My hubby helps me with the packaging and mailing process. He also helps me with the customer service and the marketing.
All important decisions are taken together with my hubby, my mom, my dad, my sisters, my brother in law and my mother in law.

My machines helpers:) are:
1 Babylock Enterprise BNTL10 - 10 needles professional embroidery machine
1 BabyLock Alliance - 1 needle professional embroidery machine
2 Babylock Jane - professional sewing machines
1 Babylock Ovation - professional serger machine

JUNE 2011
When we moved in the new house which is energy efficient and is full of natural light, I had problems with my sleep hours and my migraines got worst; and so I knew that I needed a sleep mask.
After many hours of research and a many nonfunctional sleep masks that I purchased, I knew that I only had one option left: To make it myself!
So, I created the pattern and started making a few sleep masks for myself.
After using my sleep mask for a few months, I came to realized that perhaps there are people out there like me who need a functional good quality sleep mask at a affordable price and I had an idea running thru my head. I asked my family for an opinion, and they all said "try it". A few days later, a few handmade sleep masks were already listed on my Etsy shop.

AUGUST 8, 2011
The Goia Boutique Etsy shop was opened and we were selling upcycled accessories, upcycled clothing and vintage items.

The first Goia sleep masks were added to the shop. They were handmade from upcycled cotton t-shirts and upcycled silk neckties. Also handmade sleep masks from new materials were added to the shop.

We were selling hand knitted baby booties and wool socks made by mama Ica;
hand knitted and hand crocheted hats by my mom;
hand knitted and hand crocheted headbands made by me.

The Holly Golightly sleep mask deign was created. We started to make personalized sleep mask and custom designs sleep mask.

Goia Sleep Masks and our personalized products are the perfect addition to a variety of events and can be made to match any theme.
