Who Made Your Pants?

Gorgeous Pants. By women, for women.

Our team are back today!

Howdy pants fans!

How was your Bank Holiday? We all had a great time – I went bike riding, and got rained on, built sandcastles, and got rained on, Della went camping, and got rained on, Amy went dogwalking, and got rained on, but we all had fun.

It’s a very exciting day today – our team are back in TODAY and well, have we missed them. The place is just not the same without them being here. We’re going to be introducing our Rosalind style to them very soon – our designer Emma and superviser Nisha made up the first batch to iron out any niggles in what’s called ‘the order of construction’ – basically how you do it, which steps and which order, and now we are going to be teaching the team to make them next. This will teach them new technical skills but it will also teach them that they are versatile – we talked about the word and concept recently.

Last week was also pretty exciting. I went on a very exciting trip to our suppliers with our brilliant designer Emma. We found some gorgeous new fabrics and Emma is now working out some exciting new things with them. We’re hoping to be able to roll out some pretty pants incorporating gorgeous printed fabrics very soon!

Our crowdfunding initiative is still going steadily but with just about eleven days to go we still need to raise the remaining 54% – £3240. If you could spread the word, we’d be so grateful! Some great people promoted it for us over the weekend – Dr Alice Roberts (BBC Coast; Incredible Human Journey), Dr Helen Czerski (BBC Orbit; Horizon, Transit of Venus), author Alom Shaha and Guardian columnist Martin Robbins. If you’ve not heard about it, we’re aiming to raise £6000 in pledges by mid September to fund a new machine (which can be used to make man pants as well as woman pants!) It’s live online here http://buzzbnk.org/wmyp Pledges go from £0 to £300 and every single one helps us grow.

I’m going to run off now, the team are due any minute and I forsee lots of hugs and kisses. Don’t want to miss those

Big love to you all and sincere thanks for your support
