Ending 2020 beginning 2021

2021-06-26T01:08:22+02:00January 13th, 2021|

  366 days of 2020 ended. 366 days of growth, either out of achievement or pain. Achievements like being able to cheer up each other despite the distance. And pain like the one fear made us feel all year long. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Every day was an experience. Each day of 2020 made us thankful for everything we can be thankful for, despite the difficulty. A reminder of how fragile we are just [...]

Handgemacht, Fait main or Handmade

2021-06-26T01:08:22+02:00September 22nd, 2020|

To make things by hand brings us into a meditative state, all our attention is focused on what we hold in our hands and one usually does not drop something until it is finished. So thinking of something as handmade, transports us into a place of calm, beauty and achievement. Do you agree? When it comes to purchasing something handmade it feels valuable and special, so usually we are willing to [...]

Taking the risk of being an entrepreneur, is an act of freedom

2021-06-26T01:08:22+02:00August 15th, 2020|

Deciding to be an entrepreneur involves a lot of insecurity. It implies not having a stable income, there is no recurrent amount of money that allows you to feel safe about your future. No salary means no possibility to dream or plan with matters that require money (which is a lot in the reality we are). Deciding to be an entrepreneur also involves a lot of compromise. When a person with [...]

We are digital but we are real!

2021-06-26T01:08:23+02:00July 29th, 2020|

We truly are! ;) Presenting ourselves in this platform or on our website, might give you the feeling that we are only digital; a certain thing hard to grasp and with a presence that lives only on the internet. And partly yes, we are digital, it is part of our work, just as it is part of everyone else’s life. How we present our selves digitally is now part of who [...]

Investing rather than spending

2021-06-26T01:08:23+02:00July 22nd, 2020|

How do you spend your money right now? And how would you better invest it? A recession is here. Time filled with uncertainty and anxiety. Money feels scarce and the fear of losing the little we have is more than understandable. So yes, the question about money is in our thoughts; and for a person, just as for a business, it is a situation hard to endure. But we must continue [...]

Part of Our Identity: No filter│No airbrushing│No beauty standards

2021-06-26T01:08:23+02:00July 9th, 2020|

Choosing a model for your start-up might seem like a no brainer. You just get someone who looks good on camera, make a photoshoot and done! your brand has a model. Of course, hiring an agency is also an option, spend a good sum on a campaign and choose out of professional models. In our case, since our team and budget is small (but powerful ;)), we ask around our close [...]

Fairtrade Is Equality

2021-06-26T01:08:23+02:00June 10th, 2020|

Well, in an ideal world yes, fairtrade would mean equality. It already is, at least a little, but we all know one should be careful if we truly want to be fair when purchasing an item. Fairtrade is a wonderful concept that has given you great peace of mind after purchasing coffee, fruits or any other item that stamps itself with this kind of label; however good ideas sometimes end up [...]

We are that #supportsmallbusiness everyone is talking about

2021-06-26T01:08:23+02:00May 12th, 2020|

Picture this: you go abroad to study a masters, before you finish this program you and a couple of friends decide to start a project, the idea is so exciting that it ends up being a registered business. Wuhu! Now you have a registered business! But… what does it mean? It only means that you are legally allowed to operate and of course that your business is now part of the [...]

Lulo and Co – From Colombia to Europe

2021-07-28T18:41:44+02:00November 20th, 2018|

Why Colombia? Most importantly, one of our team members is from this beautiful country. As she bought a creative backpack from an independent designer in Colombia and received a lot of positive feedback with regard to its great look, she, together with a friend, came up with the initial idea to create a business that imports hand-crafted designs from Colombian artists to Europe - or first of all to Vienna. And [...]
