Meminio was founded by both Marie & Alison, here is our story.
We met when our children were at pre school and very quickly hit it off over a bottle of wine on a ‘Mum’s night out”. We found ourselves talking about everything but the children and got locked in at the pub to chat until the early hours.
It wasn’t long until we started to talk about a business idea that I had. My Nan’s suitcase had been perfect for storing my daughter Maisie’s keepsakes in but wasn’t big enough and didn’t have any compartments – it was also a bit smelly. The vision was to create a vintage suitcase on the outside that was a bit like a jewellery box on the inside that would be a great gift for Christenings, New Baby or for your own children. The talking stage took a couple of years as I was still working as a Maths teacher so it did just seem like a dream. That was until something happened in Alison’s life to make her more determined than ever to make our dream come true.
Since launching our Meminio products at the end of 2015 we have had an amazing response. We started with our Memory folders and our Memory Cases followed then the Wedding Keepsake case and now in April we are looking forward to receiving our life cases that are for everyone from New baby to Grandad. We are keen to keep making more products that fill that gap in the market for a brand to go to for keeping memories treasured.
We love Oodlique the look and feel of the website, how personal it is and how friendly and approachable everyone is at HQ.
