Tell us about yourself.
I was born in Russia and I was graduated from University Tourism Economics and Management . I was working in Turkey as a tour guide and I met the person of my life.
We got married and have a lovely boy in 2012. We were working in tourism but something happened in 2015. There were no more people coming to visit Turkey because of the terrorist attacks and the Coupe attempt.
We lost our jobs but it was a gift because I started to do something I like.
I love to make nests, pillows and toys for babies. I did it for a long time as a hobby for my friends and family. And now I am making nests for babies and sending to all over the world.
Just a few days ago I have sent the 1000th baby nest to over seas.
It is wonderful to think about 1000 babies are sleeping comfortably and their parents are having a better sleep!
When did you open your business and what made you decide to do so?
I started my business in 2016. After me and my husband lost our jobs. We were working in tourism and there were terrorist attacks in Turkey. But everything is really good now here. We don’t have that kind of problem anymore.
Tell us a bit about your products.
Baby nest bed is a portable bed, a play mat and even a changing table !
I use only organic cotton for my products. It s so comfortable, super soft and breathable material. They are all certificated material.
I have 3 sizes. Newborn size, medium size and the ones for toddlers.
What inspires your work?
Happy moms are inspiring my work. I know how difficult to be a mom of a newborn. You need to wake up a few times every night and walk to the baby room and nurse. it is exhausting. With my product they nurse their babies right in their bed and get more sleep.
Your little one sleep more, you sleep more!
What are your future goals for the business this year? What is your dream for this business?
My future goal is to grow my brand and make it known all over the world.
What makes your business stand out from businesses that sell similar products?
The difference is Me I guess. I check every details by myself.I make the quality control and I don’t ship any item with a mistake. Handmade with love.
Tell us a bit about your work space. Do you have a separate studio?
I work in a little room upstairs in my house.
What have you learned since opening your business that you wish you had known before hand?
I wish I knew it’s not the end of the world when my suppliers were not keeping their promise and my customers were waiting for that product.
