I’m Shakira Mongul, founder and maker at Urban Eden Co.
I make candles, bath care, and lovely things for the home as a part of my personal mission to bring a little beauty into the world.
I’ve been a crafter, maker my whole life and come from a family of entrepreneurs and artists and makers. Before I started Urban Eden, I was an event planner and innovation consultant in the Silicon Valley/ SF Bay Area. I also lead a mindfulness event series for innovators and creatives.
