Me, the maker. 📷 @mrtomclarkson
It just so happened that the @justacard campaign, which started with a request for a photo of the maker, coincided with my friend taking this cool photo. So despite being camera shy, I’ll join in with supporting this cause. Shopping with independents is so important for many reasons. Of course supporting small businesses is the main purpose of #justacard but also, if you are already trying to shop more consciously then you’ll know that us makers improve the transparency throughout the production of goods, not only this but you as the consumer have the opportunity to learn how stuff is made from skilled crafts people in all disciplines!
For Day 1 you get 10 facts about me! ... I just turned 31, I took a degree in knitwear at Winchester School of Art, I designed for high street for a couple of years before going solo, I am an only child, I love cooking, I recently moved to Margate, I grew up in Watford, I work part time @raystitch in London, I can’t stop eating 90% cocoa Lindt chocolate and I’m about to spend the night sewing labels into scarves!
