Work has been going on behind the scenes to bring out new products in the popular designs. These last few weeks, focus has been on a new apron to add to the kitchen textiles. This is an exciting development which will hopefully be in stock and ready by mid-September.
The process is to find the right quality fabric for the work. Something that is machine washable and will retain it's shape and style. It needs to be hard-wearing and finished to a high standard. It's looking likely that this first run of aprons will be a light grey colour as an alternative to white.
Here is a very rough first draft. This is to get an idea of the shape and design placement. Everything is measured to the exact millimetre before the artwork is prepared and sent to the manufacturers.
Pebbles did her best to help with the decision making on the right fabric.
As with any small business, when you bring out a new product, you have to go carefully to test the market and make sure that the reaction is a positive one. If all goes well, there will be more designs and colours in the future. Watch this space!
