Making Le Mondeur - A Look Back at Our Journey
Two years ago, I quit my full-time job and started Le Mondeur. I had worked on human and civil rights issues since college and I was feeling, well, a little burned out. It was time for a change. I wanted to start connecting and working with people in a more positive way, and I had a serious itch to scratch with this little idea that has now become Le Mondeur.
I had it in my mind to travel to three different countries, connecting directly with artisans to build collections of one-of-a-kind, handmade clothing and accessories. So I did just that.
As it often goes, one road led to another, and the new Le Mondeur began to take shape early on. Our original shoes were a big hit, and I realized that my real passion and knack lay in connecting with people across cultures and sourcing unique artisan textiles that I could then turn into beautiful, modern designs.
While this abridged version of our story might make everything appear relatively seamless, there were many delays and course corrections, but I kept moving forward. I deeply love and believe in what I have created in Le Mondeur, and I wanted to share it with you, wherever the road may lead…
Happy worlding, friends. — Jessica
