It’s been a long time since I wrote a blogpost here. Honestly, this past year has been a rollercoaster with ups and downs, and I just didn’t find the time and energy to keep on writing. I really hope I’m gonna write more on here, because I really love writing and sharing the things I love and writing about everything that happens in my life.
First, as you can already see in the title of this blogpost, Texture the Brand is turning 1 year today! Last year on February 1st, I launched my brand on Instagram, starting with a collection of only a few items. Now I’m very proud to say that we have a collection of more than 130 items live on our webshop, and still a lot more to come, so exciting!
Our items are being sold in 17(!) stores, and there are
more to come in the future! We also have some big B2B orders on our list, and I really love that companies ask us to make products for them to hand out to their colleagues or to give to their clients as a gift! We also had some exposure in a few magazines and papers. I can’t write this without a smile on my face, because if I think about this all, it’s all a little crazy! I just started this as a hobby and sold some items to friends and family, still producing all items in my house. But I didn’t think about being here today, and that all in combination with a fulltime other job that I love! Of course I couldn’t do this without some help from my mum, she’s amazing in helping me with taxes, thinking big but also in producing the items. Literally couldn’t do this without her, we make a pretty damn good team! I’m sorry that I turn our house into a warehouse, an office and an atelier at the same time haha!
As I’m working in the day, I’m busy doing emails/invoices/social media/webshop updates/B2B follow ups/… in the morning, at lunchbreak and in the evening. And I love it, I’ve always loved to be busy doing things I like, and that’s exactly what I’m doing today. Of course at peak moments it’s very busy and I’m also in need of some relaxing time, but it’s all for a good cause: the growth of Texture the Brand.
I wanna say thank you to my friends & family for all the support, it really means a lot! (ps: you know who you are)
Who knows what more is in store for us? I have a lot of ideas in my head, a lot of lists made with all the things I want to do in the future, and I can’t wait to share everything with you guys, on here but also on our Instagram! Keep an eye on us! We are very excited and we hope you are too!
