I remembered, back in high school, I have no money to buy my own bag. So what I do is tear up old jeans and hand-saw it to become a bag. Then my friends took notice and we conceptualized the idea of putting up a bag business. We thought of names, target market, designs, etc. and came up with a brand name, “Barough”. From the root word, “Cynthia Barurot”, also a pet name I gave to a friend of ours, we nonchalantly gave the business a name.
The high school bag business didn’t really came to fruition back then, but who would have thought that it will come true in a form of my own brand, JapaneseAdobo. I guess destiny brought me to this for a reason. Although I am yet to find out the limit of my potential in this industry, I am excited and cannot wait for the next big thing.
