Willow & Hide
Hello! Chloe here from Willow and Hide – the creator, founder and all things BTS of this operation.
For years I have always dreamt of having my own little business and one day the dream of working from home for myself. I haven’t quite got to that part yet, but hey, Rome wasn’t built in a day.
In the early months of 2019 at my kitchen table to be exact, Willow and Hide came to life. I was looking for something to do, a hobby if you will. I have always been a creative and have an undying love for all things fashion. I started creating and making for myself and to keep busy while my partner was away, this gained interest and an immense amount of support from family and close friends and it all kind of snowballed from there.
I live on a little property outside a small rural town in QLD, Childers with my partner. While being my own boss for Willow and Hide I also work a full-time job. I have since taken over one of our bedrooms as my studio/office space where I create and work. I hand paint small pieces of canvas to ensure that there are no two clutches alike, making each one very unique and completely individual! Each clutch is then enclosed into its own PVC cover to protect it from all of life’s mishaps!
WHAT CHLOE LOVES ABOUT BEING A
Can it get any better than being a bush based business? I love the community connections and comradery that comes with living in the bush. It definitely comes with its challenges, but I have made some beautiful friendships with other women running a bush based business and know were all in this together.
