Who We Are
We are Lan and Martin, the founders & creators of SHIN JARDBO, the Yin (陰) & Yang (陽) of the SHIN JARDBO constellation, and also companions for life. Coming from completely different backgrounds, cultures, and continents, we have somehow found common values that we want to share with the SHIN JARDBO project.
We believe our most precious gift is the opportunity to experience life, and Movement, Outdoor Adventures, and Being Mindful are the keys to enhance this experience.
Martin comes from a slow-paced and close to nature countryside town in Sweden, while Lan has her roots in the fast-paced and trend sensitive capital of South Korea. Our roads crossed thanks to our mutual curiosity to see and experience more of this world. Martin has lived in 17 cities in 9 countries on 3 continents, and Lan has lived in 8 cities in 4 countries on 2 continents. We both speak English, Chinese, Korean, and Swedish, have a deep understanding of diverse cultures, people, and what is happening in a multicultural world. We strongly believe experiences change our perspective, and ultimately our lives.
We are currently located in the south Swedish city of Malmö together with our young daughter. As soon as circumstances allow, we go out to explore more of what life and nature has to offer. We love to engage in training, travelling and outdoor adventures. Preferably all three at the same time.
On July 22, 2020, we launched our first project: Raw Silk Travel Towel on Indiegogo, and our second project: Hemp Compression Socks, was launched on September 29, 2020. We continuously create products for people who enjoy an active & natural lifestyle with Nature, Style, and Function in mind.
