The story so far …..
Two friends got together over a glass of wine.
From an old pen factory in the now fashionable Jewellery Quarter of Birmingham where they both lived, Vicky, HR and Operations Director, and Susan, a leading British Textile Designer, often shared their business issue’s over a glass of wine in the evening unawares that many years later they would be pooling their skills. After 21 years of friendship and some life changing personal challenges, Vicky found a way to utilise her business skills and passion for homewares to drive a path to this new venture. Their shared vision and determination enabled the business to move forward quickly and deliver wonderful designs and products across the world.
