THE MAKING OF TRMTAB
ABOUT THE FOUNDERS
Mansi and Cassandra met in graduate school and realized that they had a mutual love for both cowboy boots and finding sustainable ways to make change. Mansi’s family started Prachi Leathers 20 years ago and she grew up with the factories. She has always had a vision to improve Prachi in many ways. Cassandra, an avid storyteller, encouraged Mansi to pursue this dream and wanted to help her tell this story.
The founders were inspired by their personal hero, systems theorist Buckminster Fuller. "Call me trimtab," he famously said referring to a tiny surface on the end of a ship rudder. With a little pressure, it can change the direction of the ship. An individual can be a trimtab by making small changes that lead to a big impact. Cassandra and Mansi decided to call the company TRMTAB as a reminder that we can all be trim tabs.
