LIGHT BULB MOMENT - How Kazzi Kovers Started
For years I've travelled the world looking for business opportunities, but it wasn't until Tuesday, 12th August in 2014 that my passion and Purpose came to fruition - and I found it 'in my backyard' - my wardrobe!
It all started when I was looking for a spare handbag cover to protect a new handbag I had just purchased - similar to the non-woven, draw-string type-bags - that sometimes come with your handbag purchases.
It was also then that I noticed that my treasured red leather handbag stored on a shelf had transferred colour onto another handbag that was stored behind it (commonly known as a colour bleed). It dawned on me that over time, this was due to the relentless humidity of the Australian climate and the lack of natural air flow circulating throughout my wardrobe. Also, the real fact that cheap non-woven dust bags just don't work long term.
It was in that 'aha moment' that realised that these types of non-woven dustbags' only purpose were to transport my new handbag from the shop to my home safely. They were NOT favourable, or to be used, for protecting my handbags for long term purposes. The damage caused to my red leather handbag ended up being irreparable.
This immediately got me thinking: How do I prevent handbag colour bleed? How do I protect my handbags against humidity? And how do I prevent dust from settling into the crevices and onto the handbag with these drawstring bag covers?
So I set about developing a range of handbag covers that not only safeguard against dust particles, colour bleed but also environmental factors.
Kazzi Kovers was born.
My first range of breathable 100% Cotton Covers was designed to accommodate and protect any size handbag. Each cover would be equipped with a double-sided zipper (unlike the difficult zippers just across the top), a spacious opening for quick and easy access, and it was fun when it came to choosing the sassy range of colours and mix 'n 'match combo options.
Most importantly, the cotton covers had to protect the longevity and fabric fibres of all handbags.
Since that light bulb moment, these 'handbag covers' have since developed into a myriad of other uses. The feedback from our customers has been tremendous! These humble handbag covers are perfect for travelling, as packing cells, and are great for segmenting your suitcase and keeping your clothes, shoes, electronic cords, kids items and more organised and tidy.
We've even discovered that they're great for covering small and occasional appliances, office equipment such office laminators, heat sealers, binder machines and more, to stop the dust from getting into the heating elements and crevices.
Onwards and Upwards...
Kazzi Kovers has since grown to house a suite of premium, on-trend and practical product ranges, with more products and accessories coming on board throughout each year.
Each product range is custom made, and ultimately designed and tailored to help you simplify, organise and protect the items you love - be it for home, storage or travel purposes.
Who knew that a 'handbag cover' would be the catalyst for what is today - Kazzi Kovers.
I’ve been centred around business all of my life. In 1974, my beloved parents', Elias and Daad Kazzi, established Byblos Bakery in Brisbane, Queensland. They were pioneers in bringing and introducing ‘pocket bread’ or ‘pita bread’ as it is commonly known these days, to the Australian market.
My parents are my greatest mentors.
At the age of 17 onwards, I witnessed first-hand the unparalleled opportunity to truly understand each facet of the business from the ground up to the senior management level at Byblos Bakery. These learning platforms: education, experience and a positive attitude are the 'Powerful Trinity' of which has propelled me to truly understand what it takes to be an entrepreneur, and the director and strategist of my own business, Kazzi Kovers.
I've always been inspired to Dream Big and find a Purpose - My Purpose - that I am deeply passionate about. Something that gets me up everyday - no matter what! I've learned that my reason 'Why' must be bigger than the 'How'.
That is, how I am going to bring this vision to reality.
Life is about giving back. As the Kazzi Kovers range continues to expand and grow, my ultimate vision for Kazzi Kovers is to make a difference in our community. My 'Why' and 'My Purpose' is to eventually build, develop and nurture "Kazzi Kamp" for sick kids with diabetes, while giving back to the community and community projects.
And 'how' that is going to happen is with unwavering determination and a fabulous and dedicated team that will bring this Purpose to fruition through sheer tenacity, hard work and a whole lot of fun along the way.
Kazzi Kovers is simply the vehicle to make it happen!
Thank you for your support and taking the time to read My Story.
