I was asked on a recent application the following question, to which I submitted the following reply:
Tell us how you decided to start your own business.
I am a crafter, a lawyer, a law professor, a wife and a mother. In 2010, while one of my children was a baby and my other child was a young toddler, a colleague and I worked on a very difficult homicide trial in which we were co-counsel defending a mentally retarded young man whose actions ultimately and tragically caused the death of a well-liked local police officer. The grueling trial went on for several months, during which my colleague and I worked punishing hours that kept each of us from spending time with our families and our communities. Throughout that difficult time, I needed a creative outlet from the physically draining and emotionally exhausting demands of my work. So late at night, after I finished working on our trial, I began crafting for my children while the rest of my family slept. After our trial was completed, I continued crafting and founded Made In the Haight to pay homage to the vibrant, joyful San Francisco neighborhood where I work, play and live with my family. In keeping with my personal priorities, I donate my time, energy and portions of my proceeds from Made In The Haight to support community charities, including each of my children’s local schools. Because I care deeply about the environment and the sustainability of my community, I purchase most supplies locally, shop sustainably for ethically produced supplies, and creatively package my work to reduce waste and protect the environment. Made In the Haight is my vision for a strong, independent, green accessory line designed with unique colors, textures and versatility. Made in the Haight is a Certified San Francisco Green Business, a member of SFMade and a team member of SFEtsy.
