It’s here, our Big Day, when we announce ourselves properly to the world, and wait.
We are in turns, excited and anxious.
We are excited about what we have to offer – wholeheartedly contemporary designs which borrow from the cornucopia of African heritage textiles. And also anxious about whether people like what we are offering, and whether an initial trickle of interest will turn into a flood of orders.
We hope to do several things in this blog. It has been an interesting journey bringing an idea to life, and we think some of you might be interested in how we did it, especially if you want to channel your inner entrepreneur.
- Over the next few weeks, we will profile our journey to starting an eCommerce business.
- We have bought several new books recently, swelling our bookshelves, and will share some interesting ones we’ve come across.
- There’s an astonishing number of events in London and the South East related to Africa – whether art, design or culture – which we sometimes go to; we’ll write about these too.
- We have met some amazing people involved in either the creative or tech industries who have interesting stories in their own right, and we will occasionally invite them to be guest bloggers.
Do get in touch and let us know what you think about our products – we’d love to hear from you.
