- Tessa & Dan
Tess + Dan. The creators, masterminds, boss babes, empire makers of DONTBEADOORMAT.
We’ve been together as a couple for 7 years, and started dontbeadoormat from scratch about 4 years ago from a little garage in New Zealand.
We started designing + making our own doormats when we couldn't find anything but boring, fuddy duddy "Welcome" doormats for our home. And we're not boring "Welcome" kinda people.
We're more of the “hello beautiful, yay it's you, got wine?” kinda peeps.
So we needed a doormat that suited.
Where it all started
Our dontbeadoormat entrepreneurship also stemmed from Tess having a 2 year battle with chronic fatigue, after which we knew we wanted and needed to create a job for her where she could be her own boss and put her health and wellbeing first. Since then, we have added another member to the DBAD crew, our daughter Indi, and we’ve decided to keep her on.
We LOVE doing what we do, and providing all the awesome, fun loving un "Welcome" people out there with doormats that display their awesomeness too (even though we nearly kill each other in the process sometimes).
We also take pride in the way we run our business, making sure it’s done as ethically and sustainably as possible, while giving back along the way.
