Etsy Euroweek 2011 - A shop from Germany
I'll finish off my day by promoting a shop on Etsy based in Germany. As you know I'm trying to promote at least 1 shop from each of the 50 European countries.
Quite a challenge I know.
I'm finding these blog posts really interesting though, listening to how people have started off in their craft and finding a little about the countries and cultures they live in.
Anyway , back to Germany - here goes
Here's a little bit about myself: PeriDotbyDuni - http://www.etsy.com/shop/PeriDotbyDuni
I have been crafty all my life, with a special weakness for pretty fabrics.
After graduating from business college I had a stint working for a merchant bank before landing a position in the fashion industry. My job took me to many cities in many countries and I was continuously inspired by the many beautiful fabrics and designs. About ten years later I decided I wanted to fulfill my dream of creating my own clothing, so I started my indie business and sold locally before joining Etsy last year, specialising in sleepwear and accessories made with designer and organic cottons.
Personally I love the vintage/shabby chic/cottage style and this is reflected in my clothing. I take great care in selecting fabrics and only use those from reputable manufacturers. I design and sew everything myself, photograph the items, maintain my shop site, do the marketing, packing and shipping too!
Oh, by the way, I currently live in Germany with my husband and cat Sammy.
