I’m Cathrine,  the creative director and founder of Urbanmantra® .

I’ve always felt that with the many roles that women take on we need something of our own, a place, a practice, a quiet moment to keep us balanced and take us from one day to the next with a ready smile and open heart.  Yoga, pilates and meditation have been that for me, whether hopping on a plan and catching taxis or putting baby (now a teenager!) to bed and logging off after a long day.

So I wanted to bring to life Urbanmantra a place to be, to laugh, stay in touch, and pause for breath.

For the moment we are a single laptop, kitchen table and an enthusiastic team of designer, pattern cutter and jack-of-all trades.  With a good dose of wide-eyed optimism and wonderfully supportive partner thrown in.
