A Note from Founder, Karen Naidoo

The idea for Cuando came about when I was asked to be a Godmother to my beautiful goddaughter Matilda. Intent on finding an extra special christening gift but working long hours in the digital media world, I had no time to visit shops or craft fairs. I spent my commutes to and from work scrolling through thousands of bespoke gift options on various websites only to find that the item I selected didn’t ship to Ireland, or if it did then the shipping fee was enormous! I knew people in Ireland were making wonderful things but I couldn’t find and buy them – as I needed to – at the tap of a phone. My background (13+ years in digital media) spurred me on to create a solution to this.

So Cuando is essentially about two things: Making beautiful, thoughtful and unique gifts easy to find and easy to buy, and supporting creative people all over Ireland.

Thank you for reading, and I hope that you enjoy browsing the website and that you find something for your special occasion.
