MEZOOME – interview
A little more than a month ago I posted about a play mat by Mezoome, young Israeli designer brand for children. Today I am bringing you a mini-interview with the two ladies behind Mezoome: Maayan and Anat.
(There is also a discount code for their shop in the bottom)
1. For introduction, could you first tell us a few words about yourselves? Who are the two ladies behind Mezoome Designs?
Maayan Goln Shpigel is 31 years old mother of two girls: Alona is 3.5 years old and Michaella is 1.4 years old. Maayan is a trained feldenkrais instructor specializing in babies and a fashion/children designer.
2. How did it all start?
It all started when we met two years ago in our older children’s kinder garden. We started talking and became very good friends (so did our kids :]). We realized we both shared a passion for design and for children’s design in particular. As mothers, we were both under- whelmed by what we found in the market for kids and decided we wanted to start our own brand that would cater to mothers like us that wanted children products that were both practical but also aesthetically pleasing. This is how Mezoome was born.
3. What does the name Mezoome stand for?
The name Mezoome means “who’s who” in Hebrew. When we started working we were together a lot and constantly got asked who’s who. We liked the way it sounded as well as what it stood for.
6. Do you have a 5-10-year plan, or do you just do it instinctively?
We have a 1 or 2 years plan and a 5 years vision.
7. Could you suggest some other Israeli designers we should pay attention to?
We are always happy to recommend talented Israeli designers. The ones that we most admire are:
8. Favourite foreign designers!
Thank you so much ladies!
