Kay Patel is the co-founder of Intricate Creations, a bespoke stationery company based in London. Trained as a physiotherapist and then having a career change into event management, Kay was always striving for bigger and better things. After meeting her now-husband and business partner Jit, they decided to leave the rat race and travel the world. A bold move for two individuals moving up the career ladder at a rapid rate.
Whilst travelling around the world, she stumbled across an artist hand-cutting a card. She loved it so much that she purchased the card and sent it to a close friend back in London. When they returned, now engaged she knew she would not return to the safety of a 9 to 5 but wanted something of her own. Whilst planning her own wedding the card she purchased in Vietnam was perched on her friend’s mantelpiece and it was the detailed lace pattern cut on the card that made her want this as her own wedding invitations but could not find anyone that could achieve this - Intricate Creations was born.
To add to the chaos of running her own business, Kay recently gave birth to her son Kyle and is now juggling the joys of being a “mumpreneur” and a devoted wife.
