Inspired by the Bike

Serendipity is amazing. I was at the MADE market this past holiday season and a very friendly and stylish woman comes up to my booth and essentially says that we need to start a new basket liner collection and that she could be the one to help make it happen. We met at the Madison Improvement Club at the top of 2013 and within a month, new basket liners were added to our Bicyclette collection. Lauren has a great sense of style, is a perfectionist and I love collaborating with her by sharing the feedback from our customers – we come up with new patterns, new colors and it’s fun to see all the smiles of delight when people discover that the basket liners can also be taken on the go!

It’s my pleasure to introduce you to Lauren, the woman behind the basket liners!

What inspired you to start…
