About the founder.
My name is Lindy, and that little picture up top, my family, is the why I am here.
When I was on mat leave with my daughter in 2016, I decided to take the leap and fulfill my lifelong dream of owning my own business selling my handmade items and curating all the pretty things. I've been crocheting since 2011 and after becoming a mum I was inspired to make cute and practical pieces for the whole family. Most importantly, create items to withstand the wear and tear that living life to its fullest entails, thus allowing them to be heirloom quality items.
As this business grows, I've transitioned from solely creating to sell at markets(my fave!, que major fomo every holiday season) and online selling to designing and supplying to fellow entrepreneurs. Throughout all of these changes, the goal remains to provide handmade, affordable, fun and quality items.
Our newest venture: Ains & Ems Closet comes from my love of supporting sustainable fashion and curating items that I love and that I think you will love too! Ains & Ems Closet focuses on selling gently used, and new returns that would otherwise go to the landfill simply because large businesses don't take the time to restock them. I have filled the gaps in the Ains & Ems collection with pieces that I believe will be staples for the long term, allowing you to be fashionable yet timeless!
I am excited to see where life's transitions take us and this business next, but most of all I thank you for joining me on this journey.
Lindy, Stu, A & E
