Mumpreneurs are becoming widely recognised as a new way of working for many mums in the 21st Century…..
I have always wanted to launch my own fashion label, it was my childhood dream, but I never dreamt that my new business venture would be driven through a brush with Post Natal Depression, but after over 10 busy years in the Fashion Industry my life was about to change.
‘With Small Children and a husband who is often travelling himself, a return to my previous role was impossible……and I did try!’ This breakdown in my career and me loosing my way allowed the PND to surface, but with the help from my family and my counsellor I regained my drive and acknowledged my desire to balance my work and family life…. and I am now proud to introduce to the you Gobi Knitwear….www.gobiknitwear.co.uk
Gobi Knitwear is an independent British Designer brand, I develop everyday accessories for Women. I believe that every woman deserves a little luxury in her everyday life. My collection includes Scarves, Stoles, Wraps, Hats, Gloves, Snoods, all made by using natural fibres such as Cashmere, Merino Wool, Angora.
Gobi Knitwear prides itself on being solely British Manufactured, after searching some of the worlds finest manufacturers, It was on a trip to visit friends in the Scottish Highlands that I stumbled across one of the best kept secrets in the textile industry, A mill that has been standing strong for over 200 years, and who produces for some of the biggest luxury brands worldwide.
With their products being recognised as some of the best in the world. The mill I work with shares the same values and extraordinary quality that I have been looking for to incorporate into my brand, ensuring beauty and luxurious fibres. From raw material to finished product it is all still carried out in the one mill, with every piece being finished by hand, it assures quality throughout the entire process…
Gobi Knitwear allows me to be me and still enjoy my career and working life but it also allows me the freedom to be a mummy to my young family. It has been hard work and some days I could have easily thrown the towel in but sitting here now writing this I wouldn’t have it any other way.
