The Aran Knit, Helping People From the Beginning

Posted on October 7, 2009 at 16:31 0 Comments

This season knitwear is in big-time. Big chunky knits with cable patterns are everywhere on the catwalk and the high street. As bibico is ethical while on trend, we also have knits piled up at our HQ. We found it interesting, while researching the knit, that there's a link between the Aran Islands a century ago and Nepal now. That link is the alleviation of money issues through knitting. In the Aran Islands, off the west coast of Ireland it's likely that women knitted the jumpers not just to… Continue

Green Knickers Fun

Posted on September 23, 2009 at 11:25 0 Comments

bibico was on Guardian online this morning and came across a photo of Green Knickers, environmentally-friendly underwear with a message. We found this article on The Ecologist's website:

http://www.theecologist.org/green_green_living/clothing/269680/good_clean_fun.htm

They have a “range of ‘understatement’ knickers with ‘Stop Deforestation’ and ‘Cycle More’ embroidered on them, and ‘Love the World’ hearts on globes.” The photos on their website really made us giggle. It’s great to see… Continue

Hi Nieves, happy new year!

Sorry I haven't been in touch recently, I'm still working on your article for The Source, would I be able to call you at some point to ask you a few more questions? Just basic questions such as when you started Bibico because I was so busy chatting to you I forgot to ask them!

Also, my boyfriend bought me one of your dresses (the Marine Dress) for Christmas, and I love it!

Best,

Cindy x

That's great news, congratulations!
I'm going to start on the article next week, and will post it on my blog after I've finished it so you can use it as PR etc if you wish. I'll need to interview you at some point over phone, or skype, preferably on a week day, please let me know when you are free!
Looking forward to hearing from you,

Cindy
