Her name is Sabien Engelenburg. As a teacher and mother, children and the many colors that surround her have inspired her whole life. She wanted her daughter to remember her birthday and so she began working with her green sewing machine and a suitcase full of brightly coloured pieces of fabrics that her grandmother had left her. It was the beginning of Engel. With her products, she wants to become a part of ceremonies and the happy moments of life. But she also thinks that her products must be functional and sustainable. "Life is a party but you have to hang the decorations" Gerard Reve.
