CLOSED | Advent Competition - Win Sina's favorite bag!
In the exciting build up to Christmas, we’ve asked four people who work with Maison Hēroïne to choose which bag from our collection is their favorite. Each week, we’ll give away one of those bags to a lucky reader. Read on to find out how to apply and learn more about our employees and collaborators.
For the second Sunday of Advent, we spoke to our Co-Founder and Head of Production, Sina Jurina.
In 2016, Sina's husband Anton, initially came up with the idea to create a brand that focused on stylish and functional women’s accessories. Following a trip to Cape Town in South Africa, inspired from a men’s accessories brand he had seen on his travels, Anton decided to research whether women had the option to purchase premium accessories which were chic and practical. He would see Sina going to work with multiple bags, one to carry her laptop, one for her phone, wallet and keys and another for shopping or documents. He realized that there was a gap in the market for a brand that produced elegant bags that could carry all a woman could need in a day.
In 2017, Sina left her previous job to join Anton and together they founded Maison Hēroïne. They started selling our first design, Marlene 13” and the brand quickly blossomed. We now sell many different styles of bags, small leather accessories and womenswear.
Over the past two years, Sina’s role and responsibilities have grown vast and diverse for Maison Hēroïne. Essentially, she project manages all elements of the production process, which means planning samples based on the designs, selecting colors and materials, communicating with our Italian production factory and organizing how the products will be sold. She also manages how our accessories will be marketed through advertisements and PR.
We asked Sina to share with us which bag from our collection is her favorite. She has chosen Sophie 13” because she likes that the interior has multiple separate compartments. She now has one bag to carry all her things. She says, “I like that I can leave the bag open and reach everything inside easily with one hand.”
