February 10, 2018
Interview with Kristin Coia designer and founder of Go Gently Nation

Kristin Coia designer and founder of Go Gently Nation lives in Manhattan Beach, CA with husband Henry, her son, also called Henry, 10 yrs old and a daughter, Katherine (Kit), 7 yrs old.

Henry is an old soul, protector of all living things and his Mom too. He is kind, compassionate and full of goodness. He is a loving little boy that may never ever grow up (Kristin’s little Peter Pan). He tells me “he will never go far away from home”.

Kit. Well she is a redhead, need I say more!? She took every ounce of my energy since the day she was born. She is more determined than any human I have ever met and will fight for her cause till the end. She is the cutest little girl however and her darling voice, and spirit for life will make you melt. Before even realizing it, you are woven into her little web. She will be a leader someday, and how very proud I already am of her!

Gabriel (4 years old) and Alessandra (6 years old) live with their parents in Hong Kong. Laura Egloff their mother is a fashion designer and the founder of children’s fashion label Velveteen.

They’re both very sensitive souls but in very different ways. They are 2 years apart but were born on the same day, exactly 12 hrs apart (4:07 am and 4:07 pm) which they believe makes them “twins”. Laura finds it interesting to see how strong their personalities have been ingrained in them since birth. In many ways they’re almost two sides of the same coin.
