SO HOW DID IT ALL START…. MAKING BEANIES ON A TROPICAL ISLAND?
Martina is from Austria and when she went to Bali 2004 she stayed the summer in 'The Balicamp' and started surfing at that time
This lead onto Martina becoming good friends with Balicamp owners. This summer saw the first little summer collection of Dana Beanies.
It was at this time that Martina meet Rian, a full hearted Hindu from Bali.
GUESS WHAT .. THEY FELL IN LOVE – DEEPLY IN LOVE!!
This blossoming love affair inspired Martina to make more than just a few beanies for friends she wanted to be able to pay for a flight for Rian's first trip to Austria.
Over the coming 6 months after some hard work the dream became true - and Rian went to Austria….
live your dreams and keep on working on it......all we can say is THANK YOU.
Rian has been in Austria now several times.... and in 2007 he finally dropped the question:
and Martina & Rian are married since 2008***
