GC4W is so excited to announce that we are carrying Oobaby Luxurious Italian Leather Handbags on our newly launched GC4W Marketplace. We started a new campaign this month to encourage our community to #shopsmall and support female entrepreneurs when doing your holiday shopping this season.
“ooobaby is defined by the spirit of a woman who has a great attitude and loves classic minimalism to show her style. As a slow fashion label we design minimalistic handbags encouraging the wearer to avoid overconsumption and to keep high quality, classic and functional handbags that last for many years!
Working with artisans of the industry, our handcrafted luxurious and affordable handbags are made in small bathches with great attention to detail. Biodegradable, ethical, and sustainable fashion is what inspires ooobaby.” (Source)
We sat down with founder Tulin Sallabank about her collections, her entrepreneurship journey, her motivations, and more!
1. What inspired you to start your business?
As a busy mom and hard-working businesswoman, I needed a multipurpose bag that could go from the office to the playground. No other bag lives up to the challenge. I designed a multi-purpose bag based on functionality, organization, and affordable luxury. I carry this timeless bag because it covers everything from great mom to corporate chic. The Urban Bag is stylish, great quality, functional, and fulfills every modern woman’s needs. I was unable to find the perfect back to fulfill the invariably changing role of a woman
