An Update On How We Are Managing During COVID-19

Posted by Carol Davies on

Dear Lovely Humans,

It is crazy to think that it has been several (eight!!) weeks since the temporary closure of our brick and mortar shop in west Hamilton. We miss seeing our customers in person and everything that entails: listening to their needs, sharing stories about life and upcoming events, and receiving feedback on new styles that we take with us to the studio. We learn SO MUCH from our customers and helping customers in any way makes us feel like we are part of something. 

The past few weeks have been a wild ride. Our work life has changed. We have had to move and think quickly — and slow down and reflect at the same time. 

We intended to launch our Spring/Summer 2020 Capsule Collection in early April, but experienced a serious delay. This delay was due to temporary closures of suppliers and manufacturers, and our quick reaction to release a NEW product that would work to serve the community and public health immediately during a pandemic. This product is our Non-Medical Grade Fabric Face Masks that we proudly produce in small batches with our excess Bamboo/Spandex fabrics.

We are happy to announce that we have now launched our Spring/Summer 2020 Capsule Collection and we are SO proud of the work that we put into making this collection happen, given the challenges. We are so grateful for your support and we have been working hard to fulfil and ship your orders and answer customer questions as quickly as possible. There may be delays in postal deliveries at this time, due to increased volumes of shipping and increased safety precautions in response to COVID-19. We are shipping orders 2-3 times per week, as well as offering free curb-side pick ups and contactless porch deliveries within the Hamilton area.

But enough about us and COVID-19... how about YOU? How are you managing to take care of yourself during this time? What helps you feel good in your body and mind? We both take daily wellness walks (weather permitting) as we feel most at peace when we are moving in nature. Apart from that, we are grateful that we have technology to connect with loved ones that we do not live with. Community is essential now more than ever.

We just want to say that we are grateful for you all and your support of small businesses. We are so much stronger because of this and we cannot wait to see you on the other side. 

Much Metta, 

Morgan + Carol
