We've been very busy here in the Epona office, August/September is one of our busiest periods during the year so we've been a little quiet on the blog front, don't worry though this post shall hopefully make up for it as we have lots to write about today!
August Supplier Visit
Our production manager Vanessa headed over to Bangladesh in August so we got her to write a little something about her trip.
It's hot, it's humid, the chaotic noise of the traffic confirms we have arrived in Dhaka. Even after numerous visits to this city, the mayhem on the roads never ceases to amaze.
Visiting a key supplier in Bangladesh to see some of our final production in progress, we are treated to a fire drill. Fantastic to see how thousands of workers are evacuated in an efficient and well-organised fashion.
The yarn trader for Epona Fair Trade flies in from Calcutta to join us for new fabric development discussions. Looking forward to seeing what new Fair Trade Cotton fabrics we can source for 2016!
Rugby World Cup
We've really got into the rugby spirit here in the Epona office, so we decided to pass on the rugby spirit by offering 25% off all rugby shirts until the end of the Rugby World Cup (aka 31st October). Simply enter the code: RUGBYWORLDCUP when you're at the checkout and enjoy the world cup!
We are currently working hard on rebuilding our main website, but until that is complete all of the information you'll need can be found right here. Whether you want to buy one item or a 100 printed garments you can get all the details here. If you would like to order larger quantities and/or printed garments please visit our Trade page.
We've got a lot of exciting things planned between now and the end of the year, not only will we be sharing sneak previews of our upcoming collections, we'll be running other awesome special offers, we've got another load of items to launch on the site and who knows we might even throw in a competition along the way.
