A lifelong lover of beautiful things, Irene Held started Indaba in 1990. Inspired by her South African roots, she has always had a passion for handicrafts and sought to share her love of handmade design with North Americans. That passion for living through a lens of beauty resonated deeply with her daughter Alison, and together they travel the world in search of beautiful people, products, and purpose.
