Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in clothing but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Carolina Etchart, Owner of Argenta Crochet Lab, located in Montreal, QC, Canada.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

Argenta Crochet Lab is a handmade crochet wear small business for those who love to express themselves through clothing in an experimental eccentric way.

Tell us about yourself

Experimenting with fiber and fabrics has always been my passion, and the wide universe of crochet gives me an endless world of possibilities for creation.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

I’d say the biggest accomplishment for me was being able to create and share my art in a fun, artistic way, which also brought me to meet a lot of amazing people and creatives. I think the feeling of seeing people wear your clothes and share the same style language is something that keeps me going and motivates my work.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

I’d say my biggest challenge as an artist in business is dealing with the sales marketing part of all this. Social media can be a bit overwhelming, and it’s a challenge for me to keep up with it every day.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Whatever you do, make sure you enjoy it.
  2. Frustrations gonna happen; learn from them and keep on moving.
  3. In an era of networking and collaborations, work with other people, share your work, and create something together.

Where can people find you and your business?
