Hello Ngaire,


Many thanks for the connection. I am currently in the process of putting together some designs  but then I will be pretty stumped as I don't have any connections in the actual manufacturing side of things yet! I have some ethical material ideas from swatches but that's about it. Any pointers are gratefully received!

Hi again Ngaire. My colleagues are in Japan at the moment speaking to retailers and organising our show for Nagasaki in September.. The show is centred around outfits designed for us by degree students in the four special tartans Ive designed -the 'Four Seasons' range. The project is linked to a childrens charity in India and we would like to source printed cotton and silk from India for some of our products.
