by Ingeborg Meurkens
It was Ingeborg’s idea and inspiration that lead to the creation of Quokka. Ingeborg Meurkens (the Netherlands, 1956), mother of two daughters, lives in Belgium. She was diagnosed with MS 30 years ago. Since 2010 Ingeborg is dependant on a wheelchair. In that period she kept her bag in her lap (uncomfortable!) or kept it at the back of her wheelchair (unsafe!). Being the bag afficionado she is, she decided to invent the first practical bag for wheelchair users. The Australian marsupial Quokka is the perfect metaphor for our brand.
