Příležitosti jsou dárky, které dostáváme, ale někdy jen nerozbalujeme. A strach je jen kozí bobek.

Marie Stará is a dressmaker, car mechanic, fashion designer and founder of the Rodná Hrouda clothing brand. The first half of her life, affected by the loss of her mother at the age of 8, was a period of discovery, both of herself and of the meaning of life. She grew up feeling that life was difficult and love had to be deserved. She worked for the Škoda company in Mladá Boleslav on the assembly line for 11 years, repaired cars and finally sold new ones. The turning point in her life came with the founding of Rodná Hrouda in Poděbrady and the beginning of a journey to fulfil her long-time dream. She has come to know where she belongs and has her own family and a fulfilling job. She is returning to one of the time-honoured crafts of our ancestors and reviving Czech folklore – for example, she created the national costumes for the Czech Miss beauty pageant.
