Irka was interested in design very early. As a little girl she passionately drew ideas for lamps, furniture and all sorts of things on paper, devoured books on design styles and had incredibly much pleasure in designing and decorating.
Marcell was dreaming of being an artist and poet. While living in Texas and California he wrote, photographed and drew paintings on canvas and skin.
Years went by. We both travelled the world trying to find our dream. It must have been destiny that we met 2001 in the same state where we grew up after we both returned from a longer time abroad. At our very first date Marcell gave Irka the book „Siddharta“ by Hermann Hesse with a personal dedication „Hoping to travel India together with you one day.“ A week later we booked a flight to India and Irka canceled her job with an international law firm.
In India we not only lived out our joint passion for travelling, exploring foreign cultures and meeting people with a vastly different spirituality and mind set. We also found each other.
2010 we eloped in India in a traditional ceremony on a heavenly place called „A beach symphony“ in Kerala. To celebrate our vows with our family and closest friends we also had an intimate wedding ceremony and reception in Germany, where we implemented the colors of India with colorful flowers and PomPoms. After our wedding we founded PomPom your life! and were one of the first companies in Europe who sold handmade PomPoms. Over the years the business developed from manufacturing handmade decoration articles to designing and styling special events and editorials.
These accolades are special, yet the most meaningful parts of our business are the people we have met along the way. We wouldn’t be where we are today without the incredible people we have had the opportunity to work with.
It is rewarding to look back and see how far we have come over the years, but it is even more exciting to look towards the future as we dream up new possibilities. The best is yet to come. We truly believe that the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
This is our story. We look forward to using our story to create an experience that tells your story.
