Anna and the Original Bambino, Nerai, send out handmade GB pieces from their home base on Queensland’s Gold Coast – that is when they’re not hanging out with their Market-Family, introducing the locals to Global Bambino threads! We loved catching up with Anna and witnessing the passion of a real mumpreneur building her business from scratch!
