Like many growing small businesses, we have found that as sales grow we begin drowning in an enormous sea of small administrative tasks – especially book-keeping.

Jesse has just completed his postgraduate legal studies and aspires to venture into the world of corporate law in the coming years. Jesse joins us in the role of Operations Manager and it has been a pleasure to have him on board going into the perennially hectic Christmas season.

We also sent our first order to a longstanding Pucket stockist – The Handpicked Collection, and launched the new website you are on now.
