Business Name: Krafted Kreations Website: www.kraftedkreations.com Established: 2020 Questions answered by: Robyn Dann
Can you please fully explain your business or product line?
Krafted Kreations is a company inspired by self-care and created to show how creative and fun self-care can be while taking a more natural route. We specialize in ethically sourced products.
With the Winnipeg local maker community continuing to grow, what is the most important thing you’d like potential customers of your company to know?
We would like potential customers to know that they matter to us. At Krafted Kreations, our slogan is “made with you in mind” because we aim to create products that are “cleaner” for consumers (you) as well as the environment.
What inspired you to start your business?
We always loved self-care products like candles and aromas. We also appreciated the good vibes they can add to a space, but we could not handle the fumes store-bought candles released and the headaches associated with them. Thus, we made it our mission to see if we could develop products that gave the beautiful scent we desired without the toxic stuff. This became a huge mission of ours because we knew we were not the only ones that dealt with these issues. Moreover, we knew others would relate to our story.
What was the biggest struggle you’ve had to overcome?
Getting our products and brand acknowledged by potential customers. This was a struggle because there are so many competing products on the market.
What has been your biggest success as a maker?
All of the positive feedback we get from all of our great customers; it really motivates us! Also, the fact that we are making a difference is a success we are proud of most. With every purchase, a percentage of proceeds are donated to mental health charities across Canada. Although people often overlook it, mental health is an important issue.
Do you have any advice that you would pass on to someone hoping to start up their own business or product line?
Our advice would be to never give up. The journey may not be easy and it may not be swift, but it’s very much worth it.
