Meet the Women Behind Some of Our Brands

This year's International Women's Day theme #EmbraceEquity inspired us to take a closer look at some of the inspiring women we work with.

We encourage you to celebrate all of life's moments, big or small, so it's only fitting we take a moment to embrace International Women's Day and celebrate those who help bring Handsel to life. 


Carlotta Casals + Georgie Cavanagh, Carlotta + Gee

Carlotta and Gee's message to other women looking to embark on their own business venture is to "Just start! If you have an idea, that is great but the hardest part is beginning it" and we couldn't agree more. 

Their business journey started with the goal for "people to invest in themselves, their health and wellness and most importantly their sleep. If you sleep well then the rest of your day is good. Life is already so fast paced now that it is important we stop and enjoy the small pleasures."

With this year's IWD theme #EmbraceEquity, Carlotta + Gee told us that lifting other women up is vital in teams.

"It is so empowering women helping women and as one growing together. It is amazing how much when we put our minds together and share ideas things have come off the back of it"

Kate Dalton, Mayde Tea

Her journey from a small store in Byron Bay, to now having her product stocked in more than 300 stores Australia-wide, shows us that something that starts out as a vision, if done with enthusiasm and hard-work can turn into success.

Mirabai Winford, Purebaby

Established in 2002 and founded by Mirabai Winford, Purebaby was born out of a desire for beautiful and simple products made with awareness and care. In search of a natural alternative for her first daughter Samara, Winford was unable to find quality organic garments. Discovering a gap in the market, Winford thrived!

A treat for bubs' and those who raise them, Purebaby's baby items are made to prepare a new parent with essentials for their next chapter.
