A fine romance - the week so far

It’s been a while since I’ve sat down and poured my little heart out over here.  We’ve all had a bit of a tumultuous week haven’t we? So I thought I’d put together one of these gratitude journals, because sometimes counting the smallest of blessings really is the only way to keep head above water.

Our Pre-Sale Explained

This Thursday, 18th of August, we finally launched our brand! We couldn’t be more elated and relieved. Your warm reception over on social media meant the world to us. But that’s just the beginning.   You will have also seen that we are launching our brand to the market with a pre-sale for our first collection.

An update on our brand launch

By golly, have things been quiet around here! An unplanned hiatus to be perfectly honest, but only online. In the background, it has felt like nothing really stopped. The relentless onslaught of emails, factory and fabric wholesalers visits, and telephone calls to potential business partners has not slowed down at all. What has felt a little slow perhaps, is finding the right fit for everything. The right manufacturer with an ethical stance towards their treatment of workers, the right fabrics with eco-conscious accreditations and sustainability credits, the right production prices that mean we can actually afford to bring this brand to launch at sensible retail prices to you, our sole reason for doing this in the first place!
