If you ask me which straps I like most, I would like to say I like all the straps we made. The white braid, Smurf, Bohemian strap, Cheerful camera straps all are very beautiful.
I’m now just full time focus working on my straps & the official website of !mo Straps is just launched. I’m excited to make more & more beautiful & comfortable straps for people who loves photo-shooting!!
-- I like travelling, traveled countries: Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, Switzerland, Holland, Belgium, England, Paris, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Malaysia, China...
-- I'd glad if I can offer help: I visited Sichuan, in China, after the earthquark in 2008 & I involved in fund-raising event for Japan this year in March.
What got you started crafting?
It’s been 10 years of my working life after university graduate. I’d worked as management level in exhibition & events sector. My work was extremely busy; I used to spend over 12 hours in work daily in average. U can imagine that I have only got very little time to do the things I like, and I don’t have much time to accompany with my family, my friends & my dog. And I just think life is not just working, I think there should be something more. So, I quit my job last year and went to Scandinavia for 1 month myself and think of my road ahead.
I thank the Lord that He is my shepherd. I started my business last year, starting to do freelance marketing for different companies, mainly in event marketing like arranging exhibitions & product launch… And it’s my dream to have my own brands for years. So, I started making straps in Aug, last year. I enjoy making these straps because I can just make what I like. I like genuine leather, that’s why all the head of my straps used genuine one. And if you ask me what inspire me to have new design, I can just say I just did what I like, including the color, pattern & style. I will shop around the fabric / leather shops, to see what good materials there. I think it just like cooking, if you see something fresh /good in the market, u’ll buy it & cook it! That’s my way to make !mo Strap.
What is your source of inspiration?
I'm a bit picky, I like fashion, I think style & comfortable are both important. I choose the fabric & styles as I like. I like indian, boho & colorful styles. I'll window shopping in boutiques & fabric stores to get idea.

Bohemian Camera Straps
Where do you sell your crafts presently?
I’m very happy when I first put my straps to sell on etsy, I can hardly believe there’s someone bought my strap! In fact, before I sell on this website, I know nothing about etsy & selling on-line. What make me feel most happy is that people bought my straps & say they like them. I’m so glad that my work is acknowledged by my customers!!
Why are handmade crafts important to you?
I can design & make what I like, flexible & could custom-made
