- Liz started her career in an accounting environment, but soon realised that this would not bring her long-term satisfaction. She couldn't see herself working in an office environment and soon found a job in a sales role. Her sales career varied from office furniture and space planning, to logistics and the international freight and exports industry. Liz always aims to be at the top of her game, and has completed various certificates in marketing, freight exports and imports.
Fort Blanket is the result of the common desire of two female entrepreneurs to start their own business. “After many hours of brainstorming, we realised that the right business was right in front of us! We used a combination of the resources and expertise at our disposal, combined with our passion and came up with the idea of creating beautiful spaces for children. Our aim is to bring European styles and trends to the South African market.”
