Hi, I’m Michelle Kline. The name of my company is Xobruno. We make all of our leather goods here by hand, in our Portland Studio. Bruno is named after my grandmother. I wanted to, kind of, pay homage to her and all the women in my family that have made me the person that I am. I just love making something that’s not precious, that holds precious things. I set up a website because that’s how people shop these days. I wanted to be able to upload information, upload photographs when I needed to and not have to wait for someone to get back to me. I ended up picking Weebly to build my website because it was super easy to use. Very intuitive and fun, actually! The blog aspect is great because it’s like: “Well, here’s me!” and a snippet of what I’m doing. I think people really like that because it connects people to the human being, me, making the products. I think I like the idea of being my own boss.
