Blade & Rose the Journey, Amanda, Jon, Harvey Blade & Issey Rose.
During my maternity leave in 2010, after extensive research, and a thorough evaluation of the children’s market, I designed and developed a range of leggings, each with their own unique and trendy design on the bottom. At the time there was nothing on the market like this and I was fed up with boring legging designs. A major component of the development was to ensure that the quality of the fabric was durable, functional, would wash well and most importantly, that it was soft and kind to my baby’s skin.
After three prototypes, I was finally happy with the result, which is made using top quality yarn and launched my product to high end, independent children’s clothing stores and gift shops. The three initial designs sold out immediately - evidence that there are plenty of mothers out there in the same predicament as I was! I went back to work and worked on Blade & Rose in the evenings and weekends, whilst looking after 2 toddlers.
It’s hard to believe we are now in our 12th year of trading. The husband-and-wife team has grown! But we couldn't do what we do without the support of our amazing team. And now the British family business has stockists all over the world including Germany, Switzerland, France, Spain, Belgium, Italy, Netherlands, Greece, Japan, China, Taiwan, UAE, New Zealand and Australia and is now extensively rolling out in the USA. Blade & Rose will continue to extend the clothing range with matching accessories and new designs.
