Starting a New Business

I was reading an article in the Guardian recently about three people who have each started up a design related company after being let go from their job. I guess we all like reading stories about people who manage to turn a situation around as it gives us hope and life doesn’t seem so scary. Don’t get me wrong – I know this is by no means easy and not an option for everyone but I still like hearing about such successes. One of the companies mentioned in the article was Anorak, who specialise in outdoor products such as travel, camping and gardening accessories.

    I came across Anorak at a show or something some time ago and they are doing brilliantly – great designs and best of luck to them, they are grasping the mettle and running with it.

  2. I love the bird bag. In fact, they’re all great – strong and simple designs. I’d like a sofa covered in that bird fabric…

    lorna – thats great to hear. hope you are feeling better.

    Mise – it would be great to see the prints available to buy on a heavy cotton fabric for covering chairs and the like.

    I was rather obsessed with buying these sleeping bags for my little boys, but couldn’t let myself pay the shipping cost from the UK – I hope their products make it to the US, because they are lovely!
