Missed us this summer?
It's been a while. But we haven't been slacking off, honestly!
As well as beavering away on your new orders (thank you all!), we've been busy with product development, launches of new fabrics and lines, new collaborations, work on the new website, and most excitingly for us here at ColieCo HQ, the new studio build. Phew!
Whilst all of that has left us with little time to write for you, thankfully, others have been filling the gap for us.
So in case you've missed any it, here's a quick roundup of what others have been saying about ColieCo in the media and across the electronic blogosphere over the last few months.
