Facebook has been reminding me that you haven’t heard from Be Natural in a while so I thought I would write and tell you what I been up to.
I was only in India 6 weeks and in all that time we created Lila’Lou design Mother & Baby Collection. It was finished the night before my depart and I packed as much as I could in two suitcases to return with and make an introduction into the local Christmas markets and pop-ups throughout the month of December.
Since Jogin & I started ’be natural’ I find myself in Europe for winter. This is due to something completely out of my control but will ensure my rights to remain living, working and trading in all of Europe. Normally I would be working alongside the tailors in India to design and make the next collection. This year I left the tailors to prepare a wholesale order of men’s shirts and trousers before starting on our new collection as I had to do things differently.
In January I sat down behind the machines to design
and made the ‘prototypes’ for this year’s collection with the new fabrics I bought back with me. These I have already been sent back to India to be copied and hope to have on line in May.
Amazon retail was my next task which consisted of a few minor delays including having to delete everything to start again and three weeks later Lila’Lou design is now available in
If there is anyone out there who is willing to help with Spanish or Italian translations don’t hesitate to make contact, your help & language skills will be very much appreciated.
After the many weeks at the computer a new outlook was needed so I spent some time changing my house and work space around to create a new perspective.
With a new perspective came new inspiration for the packaging made from the remnants and other recyclables found in my workshop. The rest of the month will be given to the preparation of our next pop-up for the whole of April in the local bio coop where we will have a stock of Lila’Lou design and what’s left of ‘be natural’s last year men & women’s collection on sale.
Be Natural’s creations are going to be in several stores this year. So if you find yourselves holidaying in the Languedoc Roussillon region France this year take a trip to the beautiful town of Anduze, ‘La Porte des Cévennes’ and seek our brands out.
