Editke is more than just a bag for me: it has a deeper meaning and purpose. We spent the entire year working on her and thinking of what to name her.
A few months ago I read two books by Dr. Edith Eger, "The Choice" and "The Gift." I knew right away that I'd found our namesake. I reached out to Dr. Eger to ask for her blessing and permission. I received a beautiful reply back and the rest is history. Editke is the Hungarian version of Edith and pays tribute to her Hungarian roots. It was an idea she shared with me on our first video call and it touched my heart.
At 93, Dr. Eger continues to be a remarkable force, using her life story to share the message that our circumstances do not define us. This comes from a woman who survived the unimaginable horrors of the Holocaust. We all need to pay attention to her story. I am honoured today to share the most important conversation we've ever had on "In Conversation". - Elle
