Hi, this is me, Karen, the face behind Spice Jar. Let me tell you a little bit about who I am and why I have created Spice Jar.
Born and raised in the Netherlands, married and mom of 2 wonderful kids. Travel and discovering cultures have always been part of my life. First as an exchange student in Jaipur India, then working for a Dutch airline for 15 years and finally living in Singapore for 4 years have made me into the culture loving, travel addicted person. Always looking for new adventures and places to discover, getting to know countries, their people and artisanal skills. This has led into the creation of Spice Jar. Scanning the globe, looking for the most beautiful products, things I love myself and sharing the stories behind them. From blockprinted textiles from India, to high qualilty European linens and many more to come. I love to mix and match these different styles from around the world, both in my personal style as in my home.
