A remarkable story unfolded in the year 2020 in the dynamic city of Doha, Qatar – the tale of a brilliant womanpreneur. It tells the story of Marcela Lozano, a gifted seamstress. Marcela, who is originally from Colombia, South America, spent over a decade in Qatar quietly perfecting her sewing abilities. She was a member of an elite sewing circle for five years, where she and her friends perfected their craft.
Then there was 2020, when a global pandemic altered the planet. Marcela found herself juggling household responsibilities and her children’s online schooling. Despite these difficulties, she saw an opportunity.
Fueled by her unwavering passion for sewing, she decided to reach out to a wider market. Marcela launched an Instagram page for her enterprise. Sitting on her comfortable couch one day, Marcela thought, “Sewing and thinking about sewing is so relaxing.” It was in that cozy spot and that comfortable moment that the idea for the name “COZY STITCH BY MARCE” took shape.
Marcela’s beautifully hand-crafted items quickly gained popularity, and her pastime transformed into a thriving business. With an abundance of fabric from previous projects with friends, she wisely opted to invest in tools like rulers and improved fabric cutters to enhance her sewing. Today her venture is licensed under mahara.qa and successfully continues to infuse warmth and elegance into homes.

Taking the enterprise further one lovely stitch at a time
Despite being a small city, Doha in Qatar has welcomed and embraced COZY STITCH BY MARCE warmly, and now Marcela feels it’s time to take its cozy charm to the neighboring UAE. The idea of expanding to the UAE has been a promising one, staying close to Qatar, yet reaching new places is what is prompting this growth urge.
Many people today are familiar with its creations, thanks to the growing presence on Instagram. What’s heartening is how customers’ needs have evolved. Initially, they used the products to beautify their homes, but now, the brand has become a go-to option for thoughtful gifts too. Customers are reaching out, saying, “I have a friend’s birthday coming up,” or “I need a special gift, and I thought of COZY STITCH.” This shift towards gifting has been a delightful surprise for the brand.
