Petra and Andrea, and some of their friends, hand-paint magnets for sale to tourists. They paint and package from their small apartments. Their dream is to have enough magnets to paint, so they can make a better life for themselves and have an impact on their local community by putting more Czech women to work.
They have started a store on Amazon selling some really cute magnets for only $4.99 US each: search for Striped Cats Magnets on Amazon.
Children and animals inspire Petra, who has personally created each comical character seen on their products. A single mother of two pre-school children, Petra began this enterprise 4 years ago to support her family. Andrea supports herself by painting with Petra. They both hustle sales non-stop. Their creations are now found at tourist attractions throughout the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Croatia, and soon Switzerland and this provides them a very modest income.
Andrea says, “We personally paint these magnets with love for our customers. We hope many people from other countries will buy our magnets on our Amazon store We are all organized to paint and ship magnets to you. Won’t you please support our business venture.” Striped Cats Magnets
