Today we’d like to introduce you to Lolita Rodriguez.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Lolita. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Lola’s Classic Babies started primarily making diaper cakes for friends and family and a niche was discovered. Today with an inspiring new line of all natural products for the whole family. Lola’s products ease the pain of adding a new little to your family. By providing items that serve a purpose while bringing you back to your childhood. Our sole mission is to make the transition from child free life to baby filled easier.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
With every success comes struggle! Being a mother and a wife is a job within itself. In the beginning, I also worked a full time job to create a seed of revenue to start my brand. Trying to function fully on so little sleep was a huge hurdle, but I leaped. Once I narrowed it down by quitting the full-time job, getting people to see and support Lola’s Classic Babies became my ultimate goal! One obstacle I commonly came across was how the child’s grandmother made the same products like myself. So I continuously strive for originality while keeping the same traditional feel. Networking and letting people know who was behind the brand truly helped me grow. The love and support I received from my community have made the road just a little bit smoother.
Please tell us about your business.
I specialize in original handmade unique baby accessories and ware. I’m known for my one of a kind diaper cakes and clutches. I’m most proud of staying true to myself and always making products I would use. Lola’s Classic Babies stands apart from your average grandmother with uncommon retro classic fabrics and designs.
Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
My success is in the details. Every item is my design and style. I see myself in every piece I create. I keep true to originality by creating my patterns and fabric combinations. My inspiration stems from my struggles with motherhood.
