Modern Union bags also started out of a need in the marketplace. About 18 months ago, I owned a yoga studio and was looking for a modern yoga bag to sell in the studio. Not one existed. I searched long and hard for fabric that met my idea of “modern”, and the ball kept rolling from there. The bags also sell tremendously well as diaper bags. The best part of running my own business is the creative freedom I have. Of course, having children affects the way any business is run, especially if the owner is a stay at home mom. I am constantly working late nights and early mornings while they sleep. Those are my times to get the “business” taken care of. The rest of the day belongs to my kids and the joys of childhood.
