WHY 103 COLLECTION
Inspiration Behind the Name: A Tale of Divine Connection
The name '103 Collection' isn't just a random choice—it's a reflection of a remarkable journey that Melinda and Delfondo embarked on long before they crossed paths. As teenagers, they both called the same neighborhood home, residing just a mile apart on Chicago's south side in the Roseland neighborhood. Remarkably, their paths had never crossed during those early years.
Years later, fate intervened, and they finally met. What they discovered was a divine connection rooted in shared stories of growing up on 103rd street. It was a connection that felt like destiny had played its hand.
When it came time to choose a name for their business, Melinda and Delfondo couldn't ignore the palpable energy that surrounded the number 103. It was a name that not only held their personal history but also represented the serendipity that had brought them together.
The 103 Collection is more than just a brand; it's a testament to the power of connection and the beauty of a shared journey. We invite you to be a part of our story and experience the love and intention woven into every product we create.
