2020 has been tumultuous so far + Sans Beast has not been immune to the challenges. As a niche, vegan handbag brand celebrating our second birthday in March, it was a rude awakening to follow the blowing out of the birthday candles with a new acronym + lifestyle - WFH. However this post is not about doom + gloom, it's about celebrating creativity, getting excited about a new collection, recognising the power (and importance) of collaboration + enjoying the notion of blooming again.
Pam Ahern is the founder + owner of Edgar's Mission. A former equestrian champion, a chance encounter with a trotter named Edgar Alan Pig saw her give up her full time job + create a haven for farm animals which she built from the ground up.

We spoke with Victoria Fox, the inspiring founder of Melbourne CBD urban beauty wonderland (aka day spa with a difference) Miss Fox about all things business, the need for evolution when priorities change + the importance of self care in the business building + life journey.

From day 1 of Sans Beast, we wanted to ensure we were walking our talk by committing to animal welfare in a tangible way. We donate the gross profits from the sales of bag charms to animal rescue sanctuary, Edgars Mission. The sanctuary is open to visitors + is a delightful day trip for anyone visiting or living in Melbourne. You will learn from the caring + knowledgeable volunteers + staff at Edgars Mission + be inspired by the non human residents of this peaceful property.
