About Rika

Rika is a creative on a quest. Sawing wood ornaments and hand knitting scarfs from an early age, has taught her a deep appreciation for handmade products and hand making processes.

Before she ventured into the world of fashion, she read a degree in Development Economics. She believes that we can learn most, when we’re outside of our comfort zone. And that the less alike we are, the more we can learn from each other.

Learning requires courage and grit. And being an entrepreneur regularly requires her to move out of her comfort zone, which can be scary or fun. It depends on ones view and mindset. She loves to work on the ground with women and artisans directly.
