ferox et ferus

Lucy is bringing ferox et ferus back to Design@HEART.  Her colourful clothing and accessories for children were very popular last year.

I started making things for my children when I struggled to find clothing that they liked on the highstreet. They wanted bright, fun clothes in colours other than just blue and pink, so I found some fabric online and taught myself to sew. What started as a hobby then became business once my children started pre-school, leaving me with a few spare hours a week.

I only pick bright and colourful fabrics – things you wouldn’t often see on the highstreet. I also only buy fabrics which are made with organic cotton (produced without the use of harmful pesticides/chemicals and produces up to 94% less CO2 than conventional cotton growing) and all the packaging I use is either recycled or recyclable to reduce my environmental impact. I have also started making zero waste products using the offcuts from making clothes, so I now also make reusable cotton face rounds and baby wipes.
