Tell us about you, when did you create your company, who established it and etc.?

It started very spontaneously without any plans. For me, it has always been a difficult task to buy a gift for the friend. I wanted something different for my friend’s birthday. I didn’t have time to knit something big, so I made gloves. My friend liked it a lot and that’s how Gultatmani idea was born. Later, the demand increased for it.

How did you come up with an idea?

I was knitting hearts on the palm places and that’s why I named it Gultatmani. From the beginning, it was only gloves with hearts knitted inside but later a lot of people asked for hats and we couldn’t refuse them. We are working for new ideas in the future and we will be more prepared next winter, probably in summer too, but we will see how it will work out.

What activities do you plan to implement for the popularization of brand in Georgia or abroad?

In the future, we are going to get involved in different activities (e.g Flea market, startups and etc.) so that more people will know about our product. At this stage, only one person receives the orders but we are going to add human resource to our company. As for international market, considering its unique character, it is not a problem to present the offer and it depends on the demand.
