The only role as rewarding – and challenging – as being a female founder is that of mother. The Quality Edit is honored to have spoken to six women, all Quality Makers breaking the mold with brands we adore, about what they wish for on this cherished holiday. Long-time admirers of these heroines, I am taking notes for my own celebratory list. With just eleven days until the blessed event, feel free to do the same.
We don't like
Jennifer Fisher, Jennifer Fisher
The stunning entrepreneur responsible for our favorite hoops (and salt!) touts her first born's birth as the impetus for her eponymous line. While her stamped dog tags are now a classic — and the perfect gift for any new mom — Jennifer most cherishes her burnished cuff with her family equation. This Mother’s Day, along with family time, her wish list includes:
Lisa Odenweller, Kroma Wellness
Wellness is more than Lisa Odenweller’s business, it’s in the visionary entrepreneur’s DNA. This California native mother of three is as devoted to transformative health journeys as she is her offspring. With her daughter by her side, Lisa is working tirelessly in building the brand that is redefining the detox; it’s no surprise her Mother’s Day wish list is brimming with feel good items:
Rosie Jane Johnston, by/rosie jane
Rosie Jane has been a fan favorite since revealing her morning routine to TQE. The beauty founder, known for her clean, cool California (by way of Australia) beauty brand by/rosie jane, is as passionate about motherhood as she is beauty. This holiday, the mother of three would love to indulge in restorative beauty and wellness – and showcase her motherhood pride – with the following gifts:
Kate Foster, The Outset
While this serial entrepreneur recently co-founded a skincare brand, The Outset, alongside Scarlett Johansson, it’s her role as a mother of two that cements her creativity and joy. A huge fan of the ritual of facials, a monthly membership to Heyday ($114/month) tops her wish list this Mother’s Day.
Ariel Kaye, Parachute
Ariel Kaye is more than a design enthusiast who transformed our quality of sleep (and now elevates the tranquility of every room) with her company Parachute – she is all about relationships that motivate and bring her joy. As the mother of two, bliss is brought about by her little ones Lou and Van; there is no greater way to start her day or wind down than by their side. With her brood in mind, her wish list includes:
- The Khaite Medium Lotus Tote ($1850) tops the list as it’s “a great summer bag that is both chic and versatile, and will take me from the beach to the playground with my kids, to lunch with friends.”
- Parachute Willow Organic Cotton Towels ($174/set) “as I would love to get a new set of towels and am loving anything green right now.”
Cassandra Thurswell, Kitsch
Cassandra’s lifelong entrepreneurial spirit and passion toward beauty has led to the dynamic success of her company Kitsch, renowned for its eco-conscious haircare essentials. In keeping with her brand, this holiday the mother of two little ones has elevated beauty and wellness basics on her wish list:
- Kitsch Glazey ($98)
- Bala bands ($35)
We hope you receive all that you wish for this Mother’s Day. In the likelihood your offspring falls short, always remember gifts pale in comparison to the unwavering love they have for you and -- while many days it feels otherwise as you stare down piles of unwashed, inside out clothes -- you are cherished every day of the year.
