Nadien started her brand with the idea to make something from their family’s discarded clothes. Clothing that was full of stories which would always keep her from throwing them out.  She began by sewing a pair of trousers for her little one from her boyfriend’s old shirt and then developed a service turning parent’s clothes into new clothing for their children to make new memories. Nadien Klages then started her ready to wear collection which has since expanded into rucksacks and hand dyed cork bags and purses.

She enjoys her freedom from ‘work-to-do’ lists dedicating the 6 hours a day for work while her son is at nursery and the rest for playing in the park, exploring museums, meeting friends or reading books together.

When Nadien struggled with the amount of time she had to invest in social media she hired a mentor. Her mentor helped her to create a structured way to plan, manage and create content for social media. Now she knows who her target market is and how best to reach them.

For maker mums starting out, she prescribes a hefty dose of optimism to face all the challenges to come with equal measures of realism to tackle the economic tasks of your business.  A structured day helps to balance the time between your passion for creation and the time for family. Try to outsource as much as you can.
