Valentine Mghoi also known as Vee is a self-taught graphics designer and the founder of Mats by Vee, a crocheting company that makes mats, runners and table coasters. Her passion for crocheting was natured to her by her mother and aunt when she was a young girl.
Vee’s entrepreneurial journey was sparked when she wasn’t able to find the perfect carpet for her house. She decided to custom make her own carpet and in the process, a business idea was born and ever since, it has grown so much thanks to the support of those who believed in her dream.
