The Making Of Mem & Maeve
Hi! Let us introduce ourselves.
We are Anna and Renee, owners of Mem & Maeve. We met as high school students 20 years ago. Such a span of time has afforded us many a journey together, the most central and life changing being that of motherhood. Our first born children were welcomed in to the world just 6 weeks apart. Fast forward to now, and between us we have 5 daughters under 5. To say life is busy would be an understatement!
One major challenge that we have faced as mothers has been dealing with our children's food allergies, sensitivities, eczema and asthma. At times, we have found it difficult and expensive to find natural and allergy friendly products for our little ones. More specifically, it was hard to find 100% cotton or bamboo clothing in fun, modern prints and colours. Considering that allergies are a major public health issue, we knew other parents and carers would be having trouble sourcing these products too. The cogs began to turn...
We started dreaming about having our own online store to fill this niche, and soon realised there was no reason we couldn't make it a reality. We didn't waste any time and very quickly hit the ground running- researching, brainstorming, creating, collaborating. It has been a very steep learning curve for two Mums from Western Sydney who have working backgrounds as a nurse and an administrator!
On Friday 21st October, our online store Mem & Maeve went live. The feedback we have received from you all has been wonderful. We thank you for the love and look forward to your continued support as we learn and grow as a business.
