Hi,

this is where other unfortuate individuals like myself can lament our distance from *insert fav. city*. Feel free to discuss our sad predicament, maybe some good will come of it, but I doubt it.

Thank you, No Thank You.

Although the distance between us and the rest of the world may be far, I reckon this gives us an unfair (rest of world viewpoint) advantage over the rest of the world in terms of being able to explore our original ideas without being influenced by trends.... Having said that our inherent lack of fabric resources especially organic leaves a lot to be desired......who will invest and help me fund, plant, harvest and process the organic cotton into fabric? said Henny Penny. Got a great climate down here and I would love to try it! What a dreamer! I hear you say..... and to that I say no. 8 wire mate!
