Katie is the amazing local mum who founded TommyandLottie a few years ago with beautiful hand drawn animal designs on organic unisex non-seasonal clothing. Initial just for children, this lifestyle brand now carries unique lines for babies, children and adults.
Katie previously worked in retail and marketing for larger companies but wanted a more flexible job to fit around her life as a Mum. As the children grew; Tommy is now 15 and Lottie is 11; Katie decided to turn her passion for wildlife and conservation into a business.
Making a positive difference to the world is really important to Katie. Her philosophy extends from raising awareness about how important it is to protect wildlife for future generations, to making eco-aware choice over every detail of how a product is made, how well each individual involved is treated and paid, and what impact the manufacturing has on the environment.
- Her clothing range is unisex and non seasonal making it easier to hand down after use which all goes towards helping reduce the global textile waste problem.
- The cottons are certified organic and oeko tex class one, making it better for the environment and better for you.
- No plastic transfers are used on any of the clothing, only screen print or embroidery as these processes are better quality, kinder to the environment and last longer.
Katie is especially proud of the recent partnership with the Sumatran Orangutan Society. Launching a baby orangutan design (with fluffy hair!) sweatshirt and donating money from every sale, to the charity, helping to protect orangutans and their forests in Sumatra.
