FLINT AND STEEL CO. Borneo designer + stationery goodness WHY “FLINT” AND “STEEL”? A flint is a piece of chert, a form of quartz, that will spark when struck with steel and is usually used to start a fire. "Flint" and "Steel" represent the co-founders, Marilyn and Rachel Ang, who may be identical twin sisters, but are in many ways different. However, they took the best of themselves and came together to spark a flame. HOW IT ALL BEGAN “It started off as a distraction from the toughest loss of our lives. We found our sweet escape in the comfort of our humble bedroom, just spending hours and hours doing what we love. One thing led to another and eventually we quit our day jobs and went on to pursue our dream full-time. OUR DREAM Our dream is to create new experiences for people through our products and to inspire people to find their passion and purpose in life, to run with it and never look back. And if we have one thing to say to you, it will be - Be in love with the things that make you different and believe in yourself boldly. They make you, YOU: your passions, your beliefs, your values and your story. That is your power.
“And the Master, God, stays right there and helps me, so I’m not disgraced.
Therefore I set my face like flint, confident that I’ll never regret this.
My champion is right here. Let’s take our stand together!”
