The perfect time for reflection. Integrity is at the heart of what we do and many decisions made are often not the quickest or easiest but it is important for us to stay true to our belief in quality of materials and manufacture, which means working with suppliers and retailers who hold similar values to us. As with many things in life, day-to-day it can sometimes feel like we are taking two steps forward just to fall one step back but what is really lovely about this time of year is taking the time to appreciate how far we have come.
2016 saw the launch of new styles in new colours and we are over the moon with how they have been received. Once again, we showed our collection to store buyers in Paris and for the first time to the design loving public at designjunction in London, as well as spending the weekend in Glasgow for our Pop-up at the beautiful Instrmnt store. New stockists mean that our British-made products are now sold in stores in Denmark, the USA, Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore, France, Switzerland, Australia, as well as the UK... just before Christmas we were contacted by the wonderful people at Oi Polloi who now stock a selection from our Simple Collection. We were very excited to say the least!
Two weeks ago we moved into our new studio, a seemingly crazy thing to do at the busiest time of our year. We write this still surrounded by unopened boxes, but after some long days spent sanding floors and rebuilding a wall, we are very happy to finally be in this lovely bright, inspiring space.
Thank you for taking the time to read our journal and support our business. If you have treated yourself to one of our products, we very much hope you are enjoying using it.
Wishing you a very happy 2017.
Ian & Felicity
