I’m often asked about how I started Easterkins and why, so I hope I can answer this here.
Easterkins is a small family business and family is the core of it! The name Easterkins may sound obvious if you know me, but for those that don’t Easter is my surname and kins is a noun used to collectively speak of family.
Initially I started to sew for family, however as others saw the items I had made for family, they started to enquire where the items were bought from.
It was at this point, I decided to look into making Easterkins a business. With the aim of producing high quality children’s clothing based on measurements and not age, whilst also using custom printed fabrics not available on the high street! I’m keen to protect the beautiful Rhondda Valley’s and have a range of reusable products in hope that we can all reduce our single use plastic waste. Which is why I am proud to use plastic free packaging and also use solar panels to power my equipment.
In March 2020 I was extremely luck to be shortlisted for the Welsh ICE Startup of the Year Award, whilst I didn’t win, it was an amazing experience and I loved every minute of it!
August 2020 was an exciting month as Easterkins was chosen as one of Theo Paphitis’ Small Business Sunday winners!
I look forward to getting to make your orders soon!
All the best,
“I Sew for the Smiles”
