Ronja Nielsen
Originally from Northern Germany, I have been living in France since 2012. There I did a master's degree in international business and then managed B2B sales in 57 countries as sales manager for a lingerie brand. On many business trips and appointments, I was always missing the right business bag. This is how my brand Bag Affair was born. To make my bags even more sustainable, I wanted to replace the cotton with flax/linen. After more than 2 years of research, I can now present CORKonLINEN - a next generation plastics-free leather alternative.
