We have a very exciting company for you today, when we saw there work we knew we just HAD to feature them! Introducing Ben and Karen from THE ORIGINAL WEDDING TEA TOWEL
And here is the story behind the company:
In December last year Ben and Karen got married. Ben's a designer so was under huge pressure to come up with a cool idea for the invitation. After about 20 failed attempts they finally hit on the idea of doing something people could keep, (after all, why spend all that money on something that people are only going to throw away), so perhaps, oddly, they decided on doing a tea towel.Anyway, they got married and when the dust had settled they both thought maybe the idea was good enough to make a little business out of, so that's exactly what they did. They've since taken orders all over the UK and sent out loads of samples, OK, they're not the next Microsoft, but as a cottage industry it ticks over nicely.
Eventually, they created the original Whale design and got it to print, then we came to the day of sending them out. Waiting for people's responses was quite terrifying, we were worried it was going to be met with a blanket 'WHY?', but really, it couldn't have been further from the truth. People seemed genuinely blown away by them and the feedback was totally amazing.
Our experience in marketing (Karen was a Senior Project Manager at BBH and Ben's Creative Director at a large MK agency) means we can use that professionalism with our clients to make them feel at ease. Our biggest challenge is getting free press from the magazines and wedding blogs, so far we've been pretty successful in getting the idea picked up, and that press has driven most of our business. (this is where i come in haha!)
People always ask "why don't you do mugs, coasters, or sell the idea to schools, and playgroups" but we're not going to diversify in that way and lose focus. The strength of the product and of it's targeting is its niche; it's a specific type of product for a specific type of customer at a specific time in their lives and the smaller that target the more likely we're the only ones that can hit it.
It's a simple idea that appeals to the kind of interesting people we want to work with, and a business that's grown-up with love and attention.WOW - we are simply blown away by this company! What a brilliant idea Ben & Karen have come up with!
