New Flextiles website

Since the start of this year I’ve been taking part in the Dream Plan Do scheme run by the Design Trust to help give my business a bit of a boost.

And it’s been a real help, by making me think more strategically, setting goals, and teaming me up with a local accountability partner, Becky Bird. Becky designs some very funky prints, stationery and textiles, and we meet up once a month with emails in between to listen and give feedback on our ideas and progress, as well as giving the occasional dig in the ribs to encourage each other to get on with things. 🙂

As part of this process I decided I needed a new website – and here it is!

The idea is to showcase more clearly what I do, so I hope it does that. Undoubtedly it will develop and change as my business develops – but I would be very happy to get any feedback from you on whether the message is clear and what you think could be improved!

You will notice that this blog has been incorporated into the site just as it is – I’m not intending to change it for the time being. So I will still be posting on various textile-related topics, from arashi shibori to Zoroastrian trouser panels, and if you’ve signed up to receive updates they will still come into your inbox – you can choose to unfollow at any time.

Thank you for putting up with the trumpet blowing – normal service will now resume. 🙂

Flextiles uses shibori, ecoprinting and felting to create original, one-off upcycled pieces. Extending the life of a garment by an extra nine months reduces its environmental impact by 20-30%.

  1. Congratulations on the new website. It looks great and is easy to navigate. So many wonderful upcycled things!

  2. The new website looks really good. Very easy to navigate and it definitely gives some good information about what you are creating. The only question I have is about using “we” throughout the explanations. I think “I” would be better unless there are multiples of you 🙂

    1. Sometimes I wish there were multiple mes Ruth, though I doubt that ESP feels the same way! 😉

      Interesting that you picked up on “I” vs “we”. I was in two minds about that myself. I originally used “I” but Flextiles sounded more like a company or organisation so I thought it sounded weird to refer to it as “I”. If you don’t think so, I would be happy to become “I” rather than “we”!
