Mia Tui recently kindly gifted me with a couple of her beautiful bags. I wanted to write about Mia Tui because as I loved Charlotte Jamme’s story behind her brand. I'm always inspired by other female entrepreneurs who step out of their comfort zones, have a great idea and create a successful business from it.
Charlotte started her in 2010 after she spent years searching for the perfect bag that would suit her busy lifestyle as a mother of two. She wanted to create a range of bags that made it easier for women to find things in certain components than rummaging for ages looking for something, which resembles a black hole! Sometimes I feel like Mary Poppins and that I could pull out a lampshade at any given moment. Anyone else?
Charlotte was living in Vietnam when she created Mia Tui, and they still have all our bags made there today in their friend factory, which is under the Mia Tui brand name. Mai Tui is a Vegan brand and her bags are made with the highest quality fabrics and they do not use any animal-based products throughout their range.
Over the last few years, Charlotte’s business has gone from strength to strength, winning Mother & Baby Gold Product Awards for the last two years in a row. We chose the Mini Jen Travel handbag in rose gold, which we thought was perfect for summer! I also choose the Maya backpack (because I love a backpack, so I have my arms free), which I chose in silver.
On the website, Mia Tui has a wide range of bags, including changing bags which are perfect for mums who want to feel organised and stylish. Designed in range of fashionable colours, you’re always guaranteed to be on trend. It looks just like a handbag, which means that even after your baby has grown up, you can continue to use this bag thereafter!
