About us

Hi there!
My name is Sara and I am the founder of Chacosqe. I guess one of your questions might be, “where does the name come from?” and I will be answering it, of course! But before I do, I would like to tell you a little bit about my story, and how it is that I decided to start this entrepreneurial journey by making a handbag company.
Two years ago, around that not-so-forgotten year 2020, I had a job that didn’t make me happy at all. I spent my working hours looking at the clock and the weeks looking forward the weekends. Also, due to the situation we were all facing at that time, I had enough time to think and reflect about what I wanted to do with my future, and I also spent many hours on IG.
This social network showed me how many women were starting their own companies (even in the middle of the pandemic!) many of these being fashion related. A topic that I am certainly interested in. I could see as a follower and spectator, how they started with little, but step by step they managed to escalate their businesses. I was definitely amazed and inspired by them! I wanted to be like them and have the courage to go for my dreams and most importantly, bet on myself. That is when I thought, if they can make it, why can’t I too?
I started to research about fashion and sustainability, if I was keen to start something, sustainability needed to be part of it, along with ethics. I wanted my products to be ethically made, and preferably in Europe, and more specifically in Spain.
After looking for factories and materials, I found a family-owned-factory in Petrer (Alicante) who I could work with and develop a little collection. I put my ideas, heart and savings into it and then, Chacosqe was born!
