A message from our CEO Laura Kofoid
To our community of always inspiring and exceptionally resilient Individuals,
In this weird, scary, unsettling moment that is suddenly our lives, it's hard to find the right words. But here is what I want you to know for sure: while these times are uncertain, the values of Laudi Vidni -- based from the start in both holding one another up and holding one another together -- remain firm.
We are caring for our people.
For you, that means we've closed our Chicago-based design shop to the public for the foreseeable future. We know that giving one another space now will allow us to flourish later. When the time is right, we will welcome you back into our store with socially-distant-yet-still-very-open-arms. And we can't wait!
As for our Laudi Vidni support team, they are working from home and making their health the priority. Our Chicago manufacturer is also placing people first and will be temporarily halting production so that their office members and craftspeople can safely remain home. Since our bags are all made to order just for you, it means our shipping times will be longer than usual. We'll communicate personally regarding every order, so please be patient.
Of course, our hearts go out to our dear friends in Spain, Italy, and other parts of the US who make many of our incredible leathers. They tell us that they're staying positive and making the most of the moment. We are rooting for them from afar.
But still, there is beauty.
I have found over the years, when I am facing moments of fear or the vastness of the unknown, beauty nourishes me. I am transported out of the daily ugliness to the promise of a big, gorgeous life on the other side of the scary moment. So I encourage you to look for beauty in the coming days--an unexpected pattern, a just-budding crocus, your brightest, most fabulous shade of lipstick, a flicker of something that feeds your soul. And please know that I built Laudi Vidni on the promise of beautiful bags made of beautiful leathers! So spend time enjoying our bags at www.laudividni.com and order leathers swatches to relish the possibilities of the future. Because when this moment is behind us, you really will want that perfect bag.
Finally, as ever, if we can help with a friendly word or advice as you fashion a custom-made bag that is oh-so-very-you, you can always chat with us at www.laudividni.com or find us at email@example.com.
Yours. Truly. Laura Co-founder, CEO
