Following on from yesterday’s post, I wanted to shine a light on one of the wonderful businesses we had the pleasure of helping last year. We met Rachel and Lyndsey, founders of @makeandmendco and were immediately struck by their warmth, creativity and love of sewing ? We knew their business needed to be crafted from this love and it’s been an honour to see them grow from strength to strength. The joy of now stocking their soulful hoops in the Holly & Co Workshop, a product we helped them develop.
Here’s their soulful story, in their words: “The seeds of Make & Mend were sown during the more difficult periods we experienced in our lives. After a patch where things felt like they were falling apart at the seams, for us both. I, Rachel turned to my love of sewing and embroidery, where I began to stitch my way to a better state of mind. And I Lyndsey, travelled a similar path although I combined my loves with the sense of calm I gain from yoga and together they brought a new perspective on my life. Make & Mend was born from our mutual desire to share mindful mending and handcrafted happiness with the world!
We’ve many shared interests and values and that’s what makes us perfect business partners and friends. This includes an unhealthy obsession with coffee respect for honesty and authenticity, a love of creativity and colour, and a mutual desire to make our little world, a better place for those in it. We function best when our to-do list seems beyond the realms of possibility and fully believe that if your dreams don’t scare you, they’re not big enough!
We love ?what we do and can’t believe we’re lucky enough to call it ‘work’! We trust that the universe has our backs and that things will work out one way or another – so we may as well enjoy the ride!” I can’t wait to see what Rachel and Lyndsay do next and wish them hoops of luck XX Shop their hoops and many other curated products we’ve bought together under our ‘Mending Collection’
