Creative entrepreneurs are often known to take creative career turns and go down roads less traveled. One such story is recounted here by Joey Pringle – an industrial designer who became a handbag designer, only to leave it all behind and become a sustainable vegan handbag manufacturer in China.
And not just any vegan handbag manufacturer but he is setting up a factory founded on five sustainable core pillars focused on attracting like-minded brands and clients and creating change and impact in the fashion industry, one bag at a time.
Listen to the podcast and discover how:
- Joey got his start in the fashion industry,
- how he met his business partner and why he decided to take on this opportunity, instead of starting his own brand,
- the 5 core values upon which he is building a sustainable vegan accessories factory business,
- what type of designer brands Vechin factory works with and what are the requirements they have from potential new clients
…and much more.
