We are celebrating our 2nd Birthday over the next few weeks!
The official Bday is the 16th March, when in 2016 we had a launch party at our HQ in the Bristol Textile Quarter, Old Market, Bristol.
It has been two years of hard work, navigating what has felt like untrodden territory, but we are delighted by our gentle progress: we have sold nearly 200 jackets, been to the Berlin Ethical Fashion Show, had a pop-up shop and online sales are growing every month.
Over in Vietnam, Tamay forever has people visiting her home village Taphin, who have heard about our collaboration. She was even granted a Visa for her trip to the UK back in November which left us all in overwhelm about the humble joy of craftsmanship. Little by little Tamay's way of life and wonderful textile skills are being more appreciated and valued which was what we always dreamed to achieve, so we couldn't have got this far without your support,
To celebrate these small but mighty successes we are running a photo competition for all of our trail-blazing indigo jacket wearers...
It's a bit competitive, the best entry will win one of our artisan Indigo Jackets.
We want snaps of you and your jacket.
We would like to see the adventures you have taken your jackets on and hear about some of the moments you have had in your jackets. Tamay and all the team in Vietnam want to see the whole journey of the garments, who wears the pieces they are making and to see that they are enjoyed.
Be creative with your styling, the light, the place you choose to take the photo, even dress up a friend. You post it on instagram or email it to us with a few words about your Tamay & Me garment:
- When do you like to wear your jacket?
- How do you feel in it?
- How does it stand-up as a long-lasting friend
Naomi Wood, our photographer, will choose the one photo that she loves.
It needs soul!
Our winner will be able to choose from the 21 dip or 6 dip Indigo Jackets in any size.
