Wyatt and Jack re-launch party 6th June 2013 from Wightpod on Vimeo.

The last couple of weeks have brought about some pretty big changes here at wyattandjack...

Its weird how, when you're growing a business, sometimes you're so deep in it, its hard to see whats happening and how quickly...

I wanted to go right back to the start... [not the original 2010 start], but the relaunch, as wyatt & jack, a couple of years ago, to remember what it is that i wanted to achieve, so i could bring it right back again...

Its always been about the salvage of materials primarily... but now and then, as opportunities come along, with the pressures of finances and daily goings on, its easy to be distracted by the pretty lights of 'building a brand' or 'getting yourself out there' etc etc...

Don't get me wrong, all of these things are great.. but they're just not as important to me as the salvage of materials.

We've had an absolutely amazing couple of years so far... unreal! And i've been personally blown away by the response to our little company here on the Island and what we're trying to do...

But.. its time to bring it back a little bit. Back to the focus, the salvage, the repurposing, the stories, the heritage and the roots. The history of the fabrics.

I'm going with my gut again here now, [which is always a bit scary] and making fewer products in lesser quantities, with new ranges exclusive to our site, at new price points...

Also, there are a couple of collaborations in the pipeline- all of which i have hand picked as their ethos matches ours...they will be surfacing within the next couple of weeks and I'm really proud of them...

Hopefully you'll remain with us, on this new part of the journey... [which is almost full circle] and right back to the start...

Thanks once again for all your support so far
