Our founder, René Graham, was riding the Houston metro to her job Downtown. She was a graduate student at the time, making ends meet by working her way through school. She was constantly on-the-go.
For quick changes from class to work, she always carried her makeup bag and a change of clothes. One day while riding the metro, she (yet again) had to dump her makeup bag out on the seat next to her to find the eyeliner, notoriously buried at the bottom.
She thought to herself: there has to be a better way. A few sketches later, Renzoe Box was born.
