Joanna and Sabeha.jpg

Joanna and Sabeha met in May 2016 at St Hilda’s East Community Centre and came up with a crazy idea to start a shoe company…

Sabeha has worked at St Hilda’s for 12 years, leading women’s community projects and working to reduce social barriers for marginalised women, and she has a BA in Social Enterprise.

Joanna was a 2016 Year Here fellow, and nearly went to medical school before she realised she’d prefer to be making shoes.
