Once upon a time...
In the ’90s, more precisely 1994, Maria Helena my mother, found a talent in turning simple clothes into beautiful dresses for children, her dresses were true pieces of art made with lots of care and charmed everyone that saw them.
My mother made and should her dresses and other children’s clothing, not only for casual clients but also for shops in the shopping center of my city, but the coolest thing was that I and my sister were her models, we cat walked in the center every time there was a new collection. Her sewing atelier, due to rehoming reasons, sadly was closed after 4 years later.
You might be asking, what does my mother's sewing atelier have to do with billy&bugga handcrafted chocolates?
When the sewing atelier opened its doors the name billy&bugga was chosen in homage to me and my sister since these were our childhood nicknames.
I, bugga, have always had an interest in chocolates, I remember when I was a child I would seat on top of the table and always help my mother make brigadeiro and packaging it for our parties.
The years passed by and I’ve found a passion and talent for making chocolates.
The name billy&bugga represents my childhood filled with pretty dresses and brigadeiros, it represents the person I am today, it represents my daughters who live in a world filled with ribbons, dresses, and of course a lot of chocolate.
