Tell Helen, tell us about your concept…
My name is Helen and I am still a full-time mom on the island of Spetses. Not long ago, I came together with my colleagues and started a journey into the business world under the name “Olive the Sun”. In short, we were finally approved by the EOF laboratory to prepare a multitude of products, after a lot of dedication and insisting of course!
As we stand at our work bench making preparations, or creating olive oil soaps or candles or essential oils or aromatherapy products, we always have in mind a single thought of “how can our product make the everyday life of our customer even a little bit better?”.
What is the inspiration behind your work? Who are some people/ what are some projects that have inspired you?
Our inspiration is humanity, and all our products are created inspired by a personal desire or need of a friend or customer!
Whats your experience of the Meet Market?
Each Meet Market is like a trip with friends to an unknown destination. You can never be sure about the experience and the people you are about to meet, but you know that you will have a good time any way, eat good food and laugh a lot.
Where do you realistically see yourself in 5 years? If you didn’t have to be realistic, where would you dream to see yourself in 5 years?
I dream myself … five years wiser and sitting under an olive tree after a creatively fatiguing day and checking in my notebook if everything is ready for tomorrow’s Meet Market. I see myself after another five years doing what I dream!
Whats the one tool in your workshop that you cant live without?
I could not part with my library, even if I had all the equipment in the world because without knowledge, I could not prepare anything.
Whats the strangest job you have every had?
I haven’t had any strange jobs… or at least not yet…
