The Designer

Hi, I'm Cristina! I'm Portuguese born from Lisbon, Portugal.
I'm passionate about Design, Sustainability and long talks over glasses of wine. I landed in Australia, in 2007 after finishing my degree in Industrial Design. I decided to do the big travel on my own. Little I knew, I would meet in Sydney, the love of my life and partner in crime. We got married in Portugal, lived in Sydney and in 2009 moved to his gorgeous town in the Mid North Coast. We have 2 beautiful girls, dogs, chickens and ducks!

How it all started

I was a home staying mum for both of my girls, as you mums know, it is a full time job. Truth is Design always has been present my core, as an undercurrent ready to be birthed. Slowly, I regained confidence with another love- handmade. It was my previous business, kids decor, made out of plywood. I loved it, but deep down I knew I wasn't leaving my comfort zone. Ekokids Au, happened when we moved to our new house, when I was looking for a desk for my girls. In my search, the products I'd found, always lacked one element I believed essential. That's when it stroke me! What if I designed furniture with no screws? That I could assemble with no help? What if I used the very best material available? That could be durable, eco friendly and beautiful? I brainstormed with my girls and for weeks and months, I was drawing, researching to find the best material available. This process, relit the passion I have had for Design. Not long after I was able to birth my first prototype set- Kreature. That's when Ekokids was born!

I hope you can enjoy this journey with me <3
