Team

Mela, Nina and Petra spend a lot of time throwing ideas around – and also their realisation. Each one of us brings special qualities and skills to this work and to Kulmine. The result of this combination is a wonderful synergy effect:

Of course, as the owner of Kulmine and center of our team, Petra is in a very special position. But in the end it is more her particular ability for connecting and inspiring people, her deep calmness, wit and passion for everything that she does, that makes her essential role so special.
Overseer for all our projects is Mela. Additional to her design qualities she brings a big treasure of bubbly ideas and an admirable ability for structure. She holds the threads of all our projects together. You could really say: Everything that is visible on the homepage, was designed by her or at least went through her hands.
That also means the many texts and a lot of these were written by me. Through this, my capability for spot-on wording and imaginative word finding comes through again and again. My love towards Kulmine fabric has also lead me to think of a lot of possible (and impossible) products and projects. Currently especially in the area of publicity.
First and foremost is the huge fun we have together and the satisfying feeling, when another great idea is realised. – Nina

What do you enjoy most in your work for Kulmine?

We get a lot of feedback from our customers these days, from midwives and people in healing professions which confirm the wonderful impact Kulmines have on the attitude towards life and also the health of women and sometimes even men. Additionally, the internet has enabled us to become more known, and we have gained many supporters, which gives me a lot of joy.

What is the most important thing that people, especially women, can learn through Kulmine in your opinion?

The most important thing for me, can be explained with the expression “to get in touch with oneself”. But to me this means so much more and happens on so many levels, that I find the term almost too small. For men it is certainly interesting to see how their partners get a new connection to their bodies and they can profit from that.

What gives you the most pleasure in your work for Kulmine?

I savour how diverse the work for Kulmine is for me. I can act out completly different aspects of my creativity. I am integrated in so many of the processes. For example when Nina discusses a new product idea with me, or when we cut new fabric with Petra and I design the corresponding banner ad on the website. I feel very supported and valued by Nina and Petra: “thread holding spinstress” they call me at the moment. :)
