‘Eureka’ is a spotlight on business origins brought to you by Daniel Giacopelli and the team behind ‘The Entrepreneurs’. This week we hear the story of Emma Wingfield, a Brooklyn-based researcher, expert on West African art and co-founder of textile brand Five | Six. Along with her co-founder Laine Henry, the two collaborate with the weaving collective in Waraniéné, Côte d’Ivoire, to produce gorgeous ethically-made home-goods and bags. Wingfield explains how they turned a research passion into a company.
