Who We Are

Turquoise Ladder is a social enterprise based in Asheville, North Carolina. It serves as the creative schoolhouse & studio for Birds Eye Business Planning & Adventure. Our mission-inspired products are designed with the stylish explorer in mind.

In the summer of 2018 Sheila Ostroff joined our team, as the project coordinator.  Her onboarding began with a series of conversations about what her own entrepreneurial dreams are and what type of products she would develop if given the time and resources to do so. She shared a story of a product of which she had a prototype made for herself during her solo travels in India. Annie’s enthusiasm for this idea stemmed from her own background in fair trade and product design and she decided to invest Birds Eye resources into its development.  Annie and Sheila joined their skills to bring it into market under Birds Eye’s muse brand, Turquoise Ladder.
