Meet Claudine, the woman behind our groovy Romeli bags!
Claudine is a fifty-one-year-old mother of three kids, an author, a great cook, and a woman of integrity.
One of the fascinating things about Claudine is her multifaceted role as a mother, teacher, author, artisan, and advocate in her community. She learned weaving skills while living with her mother in Rwanda.
For Claudine, working with her hands was a blessing. She started her artisanship because of her willingness to provide work for women in her community, her desire to reduce human impact and resource consumption, and her social cohesion.
In one of our conversations, she explained how her passion for the underprivileged transformed her into today's person.
Her recommendation to us is? To use the bags to express our fashion sense while contributing to sustainability as individuals.
