Q: How + When was Mill’k born?
I consider that Mill’k is still evolving every day, that is also how the organization was birthed… I grew up in the little, but artsy town, Hartbeespoort. The inventive juices did not really flow throughout my college years and I would’ve by no means imagined myself in the place I locate myself today.
I did my post-matric studies at UP in law and was later accepted as attorney, but knew from the commence that it was not fairly me. Shortly after I was accepted, I decided to rather go into teaching as this would free up my afternoons for far more creative projects. This was specifically what was required to commence Mill’k, inside a year I had a strong client base and all my ideas produced for very a handful of merchandise.
I initial started my personal retail organization, but now practically focus wholly on the wholesale of the things.

Q: Why the name Mill’k?
I was searching for a name that was both short but catchy. I thought of “mill”, like in “windmill”, but then I added a “k”… completely random.

Sheesh, there is such a lot of creativity around us. I enjoy travel and people, these two factors inspire me.
