On 29th October 2021, Emma Easter from the Rhondda Valleys was recognised by British business woman, Jacqueline Gold CBE, for her success as a female entrepreneur, and awarded with a prestigious #WOW badge.
Emma was selected by Jacqueline after she entered ‘Women on Wednesday’ – a competition launched by Jacqueline in 2011 to celebrate the growing number of UK female entrepreneurs and businesswomen.
Women on Wednesday (#WOW) takes place every week and is run through Jacqueline’s Twitter and Instagram page. When selecting the winners, Jacqueline looks for businesses that are interesting, that have strong brand values and that she thinks have potential to grow and succeed in their industry. She looks for quality products and services, well designed websites and entrepreneurs who demonstrate good business acumen and who have spotted a gap in the market that meets the consumer’s needs.
As a small, independent handmade business, Easterkins prides itself on making luxury baby and children's clothing. We work hard to ensure all our products are gender-neutral, ethically made, organic, and zero waste. All lovingly made by Emma from her solar-powered studio in the Rhondda Valleys, South Wales.
Jacqueline Gold says: “Easterkins is an amazing family run business based in South Wales. Born out of frustration at the lack of gender-neutral and sustainable children's clothing available in high street shops and supermarkets, Founder Emma decided to change things. She created fun, colourful and sustainable clothing that her customers will love, regardless of their gender. The business has partnered with Ecologi to become a climate positive workforce and they plant a tree for every order. I wish Emma every success with Easterkins!”
