Who we are
Panda Press was born of the idea of helping small businesses in South Africa to collectively reach a bigger audience. After having her first child in 2015, Panda Press founder, AgnieszkaCeitil realised that there was no online store where she could purchase personalised baby products for her new daughter. After doing some social media digging, Agnieszka realised there were hundreds of small individually owned businesses that make beautiful personalised goods, but few of them had the funds, knowledge or time to reach a larger customer base or even to open and maintain their own online stores.
Coming from a corporate IT management background, Agnieszka realised that on their own, these small businesses would hardly ever get noticed by the broader South African consumer base, but collectively, they would be able to create one big powerful platform that could reach a massive customer base in South Africa and beyond.
