Welcome to the jungle!
Long time ago.. in 2005, we first saw Paraguay. We – thats Matthias and I, Stefanie.
Two months earlier in July 2005 there was a call in the German Kingdom Ministry to encourage brothers to consider moving to Paraguay.
The first time we went we spent a total of 10 months there. Everything was new and different. It was exciting to see how the first German groups and congregations were built and many young sisters and brothers responded to the call. During this time we also started looking around what we could do to make a living here and started working with leather and the website.
But then we had to go back to Germany, due to work and health reasons.
After more than three years, we finally were able to return to Paraguay. Life and people here are mostly wonderful. We learn a lot new things about the culture and mentality.
Everything takes its time here, nothing runs fast. “Tranquilo”, as you can hear always. Thats great in this stressful times – but could also be a challenge, if you want move something fast.
Leather & Design
We love good design and usefull things made with love to the detail. So we start working out new bag models with the aprouch to look good and work fine in our service.
Good ideas who also come from friends and our worldwide family helped us a lot to refine our products. To convert an idea into a finished product, takes a long way and you need a lot of patience and perseverance.
Feeling the joy of the friends & family and hearing that what you made is very useful in service, makes the effort worthwile.
What we do..
My work, for example, is staying in touch with you. Many of you know me by e-mail or social media. And do I have great customers! Often we became friends and some of you even visited me here in Paraguay! 🙂
Matt takes care about the webshop and all the design process. Ruth & Maria, two sisters from nearby congregations, are checking the product quality, do the packing and tracking etc. We working since years with them and they are great help!
These are only some of the tasks we have to manage all days. And as I said, the clocks tick somewhat differently down here. So not everything is as fast as we wish sometimes..
But even though we are only a small team with everybody working part time, we really put our heart into offer you the best products and service.
Thank you so much for your love, support and making this whole project possible!
Agape & Big hugs,
Matt & Stefanie 🙂
