BRIEF: Sonia Chhinji Founder of Woodlot on Travel Preferences




On this edition of the BRIEF, we want to introduce you to our colleague and friend Sonia Chhinji, co-founder of Woodlot, a home and clean body products line made from simple and quality ingredients. Sonia and her co-founder and partner in life Fouad, started this company two years ago taking all the elements of their family traditions to combine them to respond to modern market needs, which is how they have been able to grow so quickly in such a short time. Natural and practical is the perfect combo in todays’s world and we are very excited to show a little sneak peek into Sonia’s travel preferences.


We are dedicating the month of September to fearless women that are breaking the rules, overcoming fear, adventuring into the unknown, creating the life they want to live, exploring their creativity, and overall getting things done.
