We all have a bit more time on our hands at the moment , and more time to press the reset button on our lives Everywhere I see around me on social media people are moving back to the simple pleasure in life , and reassessing what really makes them happy.
We feel blessed to have a lovely home and a space to feel safe and happy. It is so important especially now. One of the best ideas that I have seen is to have a jar ,and everytime someone says " I wish I could just " write it on a piece of paper and pop it inside. It makes you realise that it is people , and the simple things are what really make people happy.
Love , friendship and family are the building blocks behind the whole Hettie ethos and about spending time with the people you love doing the things you love.
We want you to treasure the things you buy from us for a long time
The inspiration behind the Hettie is to create timeless pieces that will be treasured for a lifetime and passed down from generation to generation. Hettie is actively against fast fashion and campaigning for a cleaner industry that focuses on traditional craft and quality.
Slow Fashion is an awareness and approach to fashion, which considers the processes and resources required to make clothing, particularly focusing on sustainability. It involves buying better-quality garments that will last for longer and values fair treatment of people, animals and the planet.
This week is Fashion Revolution week . You can read more about it here
"On the anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse, which killed 1,138 people and injured many more in 2013, we encourage millions of people to come together to campaign for systemic change in the fashion industry.
We are living in a climate emergency and the fashion & textiles sector is one of the most polluting and wasteful industries. The industry continues to lack transparency, with widespread exploitation of people working in the supply chain. Never before have there been this many people on the planet in slavery, and fashion is a key driver of this reality. Brands and retailers are still not taking enough responsibility for the pay and working conditions in their factories, the environmental impacts of the materials they use or how the products they make affect the health of people, animals and our living planet."
The Hettie collections are Made in Britian.
Everything is produced in safe working environments by workers who are looked after properly . There are no long journeys across the sea or air to get your products to you either which reduces our carbon footprint .
Hettie is committed to creating products that stand the test of time.
The planet and the country can't withstand the current manufacturing model. We at Hettie are doing what we can to ensure the products we create, stand the test of time and become a valued possession to our customer, not just another throwaway purchase.

Let’s all think about the wonderful world in which we live and preserve it for future generations. We need to leave our planet for them as we found it .
I really hope that people will remember the way they are feeling at the moment during these horrible days of the coronavirus pandemic. Remember that we don't need to be spending money all of the time on plastic tat , goods that aren't made well and will be thrown away soon. Teach your children and each other to respect their world , and to respect the other people and animals that share it with them.
