When Purdie was little, she went on a holiday.
In the backyard was the biggest mango tree she had ever seen.
The tree was so full of ripe, sweet fruit, that mangoes were falling to the ground.
Before Purdie and her friends were allowed to play each day, they were sent out to collect a box of mangoes.
Day after day, they picked hundreds of luscious mangoes.
When Purdie was older, every time she treated herself to a mango, she relived that carefree summer holiday.
Looking through a box of old photos, she realised life was filled with mango moments.
She laughed at her 21st birthday shots, remembering the antics she got up to that night!
Her wedding photos made her feel like a princess again and her heart swelled with pride when she looked at her children’s baby snaps.
These special moments had made her who she is today. It was her story.
Purdie wanted to give every one a chance to tell their story and celebrate their individuality.
And so mango ink was born ……
