Happy Easter! Yes, the sunny Spring holiday is already upon us and it’s time to give you a brief update of what’s going on here at Rickwells Himalayan HQ.
A BIG thank you to everyone that came to see us at March’s Exeter Vegan Market at the Corn Exchange. It was great to see you all, and we had a really good day. Due to some other date clashes this year, we’re still not sure when the next market appearance will be, but rest assured we will publicise it well as soon as we know.
So as you will have seen, our online store is bulging with our largest ever variety of products. We had some new arrivals in our previous order, such as gloves, hemp belts and a new range of hemp wallets. With the summer and festival season rapidly approaching, we’ll turn our attention to restocking our popular summer items and festival clothing range.
We were approached by Cherry Jackson regarding a donation for her charity Playing for Georgia. Cherry lost her daughter to suicide in December 2017 and has since been raising money for the wonderful support group, Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide (SOBS). Through a women’s football tournament and an auction they hope to raise more vital funds for the group. We were humbled to be able to contribute by donating one of our Elephant Family Ornaments to the auction and hope that it can go a small way to contributing to this excellent cause. Their Facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/PlayingforGeorgia so please check it out and get involved if you can help out.
The popularity of hemp is growing rapidly due to its significant environmental advantages over other materials and we have been working hard on our first ever fashion brand – HempStyle. This is a bit of a sneak-peak – we’ll be launching this properly in the next couple of months with a new range of bespoke footwear. High quality, strong, made from hemp, Fair Trade, vegan and super environmentally friendly. We’re super excited about this, but all we can really say for now is watch this space!
Have a wonderful Easter – enjoy the bank holiday weather and don’t forget to keep up to date with us on our social media!
