Taíla Carrilho, a creative Mozambican entrepreneur with a passion for design — Lionesses of Africa

What inspired you to start your company?

Everything around us inspires me. But for now, I specifically get inspiration from the 60’s, 70’s and pretty much everything around me, never forgetting my heritage and culture. Who knows what’s coming next?

Why should anyone use your service or product?

We do our absolute best to meet our client’s needs. We have a passion for what we do, and we try to make sure that every piece tells a story, its own story. Our pieces are mostly exclusive so we seldom have two pairs of the exact same design. Everything is handmade and with our hands. We keep on telling the story of our culture, our heritage, it’s mix with the contemporary world, and our vision for the future.

Tell us a little about your team

As part of our team, we have the most talented local sculptors, carpenters, locksmiths, metal, and wood workers. Our daily routine consists in giving them a vast  amount of information on the areas mentioned above and combining our technical knowledge, our views of the world, artistic vision, and design touch, taking in consideration their need to improve and express their ideas.

Share a little about your entrepreneurial journey. And do you come from an entrepreneurial background?

My family is a traditional family with traditional jobs. Because of my health condition, I figured I was going to have to fend for myself as no one would employ a person who gets sick basically every month. So, it automatically became my natural plan to follow.

What are your future plans and aspirations for your company?

I want to grow and share with the world that in Mozambique we have fine, quality products to offer, made by our hands.
