Today we chat with founder of Kollab, Hayley about how this blooming beautiful collab came to life!
Tell us all about Kollab! Where did the idea come from, who does what in the business, and how have you grown from that initial start up to the booming biz you are now?
We started Kollab in 2014 with an idea to create beautiful, everyday essentials. Many of our products cooler bags, shopper totes, market bags were available in the market but we wanted to do it in a more fashionable and trend driven way. That’s partly the reason why we named the business Kollab, we always had hoped to be collaborating with interesting and creative partners! For me, it has always been about making practical items more fashionable and affordable for most customers.
Where do you get inspiration for all your awesome new products?
From everyday life. The Picnic mat as an example was something we needed. As a family of 5 we couldn’t find a product that suited our needs in this category. Large enough, water resistant, a fun colourful print and a mat you didn’t have to fold a particular way to pack it up! We worked on it for a few years sampling and testing and came up with the current mat.
What’s your most popular / all time fave product?
Right now the Picnic Mat! It was a labour of love and we really wanted to make it happen so to know now that our customers are loving it feels really good.
