During August 2016 and May 2017, we ran crowd funding campaigns on Kickstarter. Our aim was to raise money to help us produce the new collection and develop a whole new range of designs. For many new businesses finance is often a barrier businesses struggle with, and this process allowed us to build and grow our brand which has been incredible!
We had a great time reaching out to our networks and meeting more people all over the world who have shown interest in our designs and brand. We wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone who backed the project and really made a dream become a reality. Below are all the people that made this come to life, THANK YOU!!

And a special thank you goes out to those who really helped me build the campaigns and business. Jon Bancroft for his hours of support and for listening to all my ideas, for filming the video and editing it so magnificently and for all the emotional support through the campaign and always! Tracey-Lee Sharples for being the queen of communications throughout the campaign, for contacting all the press and getting us seen in some awesome places, and for really helping to spread the word about the campaign. Also for being a great support and team mate when working together and for always making me smile and turning up with tasty treats! Lastly to my wonderful mentor Mark Hackman who has led me to lead the business I am so proud of today, for all his incredible knowledge he has shared with me about his business and entrepreneurial journey and for always clearing the space for me to see the big picture more brightly and creating goals and a vision to be inspired by.
