Vicky (China)

Vicky is a breastfeeding mom and our Production Manager. She is the one who turned kindestCup from an idea into the actual high quality silicone product we have today. The production of kindestCup, with its organic shape and large overhang, came with many technical challenges and she overcame them all. Vicky also ensures that every cup is manufactured to strict standards, using pure food-grade silicone.
