When Wren started I was at a very difficult point in my life. I was struggling for direction and although I knew I had to go forward, I was making it up as I went along hoping for the best.
My first product was made out of necessity. I liked it but never felt it ‘true’ to myself but I did not know what the ‘truth’ was so it had to do. Now a year and half later I am starting to find my feet, lift my chin and stride proudly ahead. I have a much stronger feeling of where I want Wren to grow to and the products that you will see introduced over the next few weeks (hopefully) will clearly show this new direction.
I am taking a much more natural and upside-down design point of view. Now that I know a little bit about bag designing, sewing and marketing I have started to push this knowledge.Â Â Â – I have a laptop bag made from paper that is coming out soon. ItÂ is awesome beyond belief.Â Â Â – I have an antique linen and leather bag that is so close to be finished I am bursting at the seams. It is beautiful in every sense.Â Â Â – Made from my favourite fabric: the coffee sack, is a new bag that has taken over a year to collect the parts but hopefully not another year to make it.
I am finding the challenge of pushing materials to their limit the greatest adventure ever and in this, I am finding direction, peace and pride. I am having the time of my life.
