Hi! My name is Jasmin and this is my family – Ben, my husband (and designer) and my two children, Zion and Lacey. Ever since I can remember I have been addicted to sewing, designing and creating.
The beginning of 2013 is when it all started. I had Just had my 2nd child (Lacey) and we had maxed out our credit card to purchase our first supply of leather. After taking pre-orders in preparation for our first official launch, I was thinking to myself “I’d be so happy to sell even 10 pairs. That would mean there are some people out there that like my stuff”.
Well we soon realised that people liked it and wanted it. Our first night, we sold out of our entire leather supply. That meant we promised to get 100 pairs of shoes handmade and delivered within 2 weeks! My husband (while still working full time) and I spent that 2 weeks, with a 16 month old and a new born, drawing, cutting and sewing until 2am, every night! After the orders were out and we had time to collect our thoughts (and sanity) again, I asked myself that scary question “Do I go back to work or do I pursue my dream?” Well you now know the answer to that question, but it was one of the biggest risks we have ever had to make. If we didn’t earn $300 a week, every week, we couldn’t pay our bills. Forget about savings, that was just to live.
But somehow, with a healthy balance of fear and faith, we stepped into the unknown, and we are so glad we did. Today you will find us working out of our warehouse in Coffs Harbour, NSW, Australia. We still produce soft leather moccs but have also grown to include apparel and bedding with our signature Bamboo fabric (It’s seriously unparalleled comfort!). Seeing people from all walks of life, all over the world enjoy our products makes us so happy.
This journey has been crazy, stressful, challenging, and extremely risky, but it’s just the start of something we believe was given to us from Heaven, and we are grateful for every moment.
Oh by the way, that’s exactly what ‘fromZION’ means - from HEAVEN.
Thank you all for following and supporting us. You are helping a small dream become a reality… Now, do us a favour and go after yours!
