We all want a bag that can take us anywhere and that is comfy and holds everything, that perfect practical good looking bag, well Radka Šillerová out of Germany has created that bag for you.
Radka left Prague, Czech Republic and went to live in Nuremberg Germany to live a new life and was happy for 10 years until Radka’s whole life changed. Losing her job, leaving a relationship, starting all over again, she needed to find quick and viable solutions for all the problems in various areas of my life: Where can she find a suitable place to live? How can she afford the apartment? Where shall her children go to school? And many more… Radka had to make a far reaching decision: Should she go back home or stay in this “foreign” country? she stayed.
A universal need created a new business that catered to the needs of others.
The question was should she go back to work for somebody else or should she start another company of my own after so many years as an employee?
By chance, she attended a seminar held by the successful Canadian entrepreneur Darren Weeks in Stuttgart, who is supporting business start-ups in America and Europe with his ‘Entrepreneur Programme’. After giving it a thorough thought, this experience became the stepping stone for starting her own company once again. But the question remained: What kind of company would this be? In which direction should I be looking for inspiration?
WHILE I WAS WORKING ON THE SOLUTIONS TO ALL THESE ESSENTIAL PROBLEMS I ALSO LOOKED INTO ONE OF THE CLASSIC THEMES OF FEMALE INTEREST: HANDBAGS.
Radka says “I was looking for a handbag that would neither block the hands nor hamper movement. I searched for quite a while very intensively but simply couldn’t find anything suitable on the market. The more handbags I looked at, the clearer it became, that the handbag meeting my requirements would have to be a type of rucksack.”
However, the rucksacks she found in the market did not suit her taste nor did they satisfy her requirements in quality. During her search, she was inspired by a number of styles, but the design was mostly influenced by French charm. After a few months spent on the first design, the first rucksack was produced to test the market in November 2014. As her friends and acquaintances really liked it very much, this could be deemed the birth of her company.
Radka started to produce the handmade design backpacks professionally together with an acquaintance in Czech Republic in January and the company was officially founded in July 2015.
During the founding phase I was able to put together a great team of designers, seamstresses, consultants, accountants and graphic designers. I would like to thank especially all those who have supported me during these stormy times.
