Wraptious - Farewell to 2017!

       

As we settle in to 2018, we thought we'd take a minute to look back on everything that's happened at Wraptious in 2017. It's been our busiest year to date, and things are only getting busier!

Our move to the new mill space in Stockport was much needed and a fantastic milestone for the company. After a very hectic few days packing thousands of cards, mugs, prints and cushions into boxes we finally made the jump down the road to Welkin Mill, an old cotton mill with more floors than we've been able to explore. 

 

A bigger premises meant more staff, and we were happy to welcome Erica, Rachel and Lisa to the team (with help from Claire, Sam and Ruth over Christmas!) 

We once again ran our Autumn and Spring competitions, and discovered four talented new artists. Olivia Hicks and Ninola Design were our Spring winners, and our Autumn competition was won by Adam Barsby and The Lady Moth. We had more competition entries than ever before, with a fantastic variety of styles on show.

 

September saw the team attending the Mercury Music Awards in London, where our Wraptious cushions were used to decorate the green room backstage.The night featured performances from Stormzee and Blossoms, and was hosted by Lauren Laverne and Edris Elba.

 

 

2017 was also the year that we launched our brand new floor cushions, and stocked our own studio space at the wonderful South Downs Heritage Centre .

 

...And of course December saw us braving the cold at the Manchester Market Christmas Markets, where we got to chat to our customers one to one ( and help out with a few last minute Christmas presents!)

 

It really has been an amazing year at Wraptious - due in no small part to the fantastic support we've received from you, and the talented artists who work for Wraptious. We look forward to an exciting 2018!

Wishing you all the best for the New Year,

Simon, JP, Naomi, Shelby, Lisa, Rachel, Erica x
