I am Lea Fialho, the creator of Travelleaf. My label, LeaF, is a fusion of my first name and the first letter of my last name.
My company, Travelleaf, is rooted in my professional experience in the fashion industry. I have worked as a hands-on designer, pattern maker and master tailor, and I have also owned my boutique and created my clothing line.
For 8 years, I worked for the renowned clothing retailer Brooks Brothers. Though I was first hired there as a master tailor, I ended up entrusted in a variety of roles, from overseeing the manufacturing made-to-measure suit process to instructing associates in many Brooks Brothers stores. At Brooks Brothers, I gained firsthand knowledge of the entire clothing manufacturing process and an in-depth knowledge of the industry that I knew would serve me well in future endeavors.
During a break from the clothing industry, I traveled the world as a flight attendant. As a frequent traveler and stylish, organized Virgo, I needed my suitcase and travel accessories to be functional and fashionable, in matching fabrics and materials. However, in all of my travels, I could never find products that suited all my needs. One day, after returning from yet another trip disappointed, I decided to create my own; drawing on my extensive knowledge of textiles, fashion and manufacturing, I created Travelleaf.
