ICONS FOR THE GENERATIONS



THE STORY OF GENERATIONS

Quality awareness is a mindset that is often passed on from one generation to the next. If a brand or product is consistently dependable and durable, and meets or exceeds discerning standards, trust is slowly built. Once that trust is formed, we will be able to recommend it to the next generation. Thus, the love for a brand can also be passed down through generations. Some things become family traditions – for example, a mother buying her daughter her first bra from HANRO.
