Welcome Lunch for our new team member Bianca

Bianca from Germany joined our team this week. She just moved from Cologne to Hong Kong a couple of days ago and is very excited to be here. We welcomed her by taking her out for some Dim Sum, a very typical style of Chinese Food. You order a lot of different dishes that are served in small portions and everybody can help himself. As you can see, there was a lot of food on the table. Bianca really enjoyed that Chinese experience and tried as much as she could, although she didn’t always know what she was eating. The only thing she refused to try was a serve of chicken feet, a dish you can find a lot in Hong Kong. She promised to try at one point though, we will see if she actually does .

From now on Bianca will be helping us to support our shop and write a lot of texts for our website in German and English.

cute Puchi Babie deer and matryoshka key covers

We just added some cute soft Puchi Babie deer from Japan in pretty funky designs to our shop. There are 4 different designs that you can choose from – from romantic pink cherry blossoms to rocky colourful skulls. Of course the little deer always looks super cute and will turn your pencil cases, bags, backpacks or other things into an eye-catcher. Which design is your favourite?

We also got adorable matryoshka key covers from Japan. They really look so pretty that I want to keep them all to myself. But I was able to stop myself from being so selfish and put them online already.

‘What a Hoot’ fabric collection

I contacted Classic Cotton in the USA to order some of their fabrics from the “What a Hoot” collection. Unfortunately they were completely sold out. I was too late, my fault. A few days later the sales manager of Classic Cotton sent me an email and told me that they did inventory in their warehouse and found a few bolts of the “What a Hoot collection” and asked me if I want them. I replied immediately and order a couple of bolts of the 3 fabrics with owls. Today they arrived at our office and we immediately added them to our shop. I am sure these fabrics will be very popular among our customers, they are just sooooo adorable ;-) I love owl fabrics!

Clothworks Textiles’ CEO visited us

Today we had a visit from Clothworks Textiles‘ CEO Ted from the USA. He visited us at our office to talk about a future collaboration because we are very interested in selling some of their fabrics in our shop. I always prefer knowing the people I do business with in person. I have met most of our suppliers before, it is just easier doing business together that way. Ted was so nice and brought us some chocolates from the US which are really yummy ;-)

But back to business: we talked about his fabric collections and he explained to us that their target customers are women aged 40 and older. That’s really funny because our customers are usually between 18-35 years old. Therefore, not all their fabric collections fit into our shop but some definitely do, including the super cute Woodland Friends fabrics. I plan to immediately place an order of those fabrics, plus the Dinos on Parade collection and the Beetle Boy collection. I think those 3 fabric collections fit perfectly into our cute fabric shop. I am very excited to work with Clothworks Textiles together soon. Thanks for visiting us Ted, I know it is a long way from the USA to Hong Kong. ;-)

Translate our shop into your preferred language

We just added a function to translate our shop into different languages, including Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, Chinese, Russian and more. Our programmer used the Google translation tool and changed it so it fits to our shop design and our settings. I know that an automatic translation is not perfect but I believe it is better than no translation and having no clue what is written on the site. We do have customers who would like to buy from us but don’t speak English or German (our current language options). We hope this automatic translation will help those people.
