A little Rew ***UPDATE*** what's been happening

Year on year as REW grows older and my little business adapts yet further.

So in brief I though it was about time I update all of you REWbies who might not know much about the Rew journey so far..... 

Rew launched in 2011 after I had sat on a simple idea for years, I launched just before my 40th birthday and I have never looked back, read more here how it all started.

I'll start by apologising firstly (I am dyslexic, I am also a fly by the seat of my pants kinda gal) so I never ever get my written work proof read as I am too impatient 🙈.

Well, well what's been happening with REW ?

Firstly, I think I need to explain a little more about me, a few facts you may or may not know and what makes me tick !!!

I am now 51 years old .... jeeeeeez seeing that in print is a reality check, I am mom to Isobel and Dewey and Grandma to Rudy, Ferdy, and little miss Vivvy.

I made the life changing choice to move to Wales over 4.5 years ago and I truly love my new life in Wales.

Since moving here we have been hit by floods, the pandemic and now another renovation project (I must be mad).

Rew - stands for "really easy wear" however it is also my initials RACHEL EMMA WRIGHT.

I am truly in a very fortunate position I absolutely love what I do, running a small business isn't easy but it is super REW-warding, I love designing and adapting silhouettes to suit all body shapes and sizes.

I do not mass produce my clothing and the reason for this ..... because I never wanted to look like everybody else, from a young age clothing was very important to me, I learnt to sew so I could make or adapt my own clothes so I wouldn't be wearing the same clothes and I could express me.

Now I want to be able to do this for you too, so small runs non mass produced means we take our time and care when making your REWS, I also buy end of line fabrics from European mills again trying to be a sustainable as possible.

I want you to wear and treasure your REWS for years and years and DO NOT SAVE THEM FOR BEST ...... WEAR WEAR WEAR !!!!

So what is next for Rew ?

I am planning a few changes and all will be revealed soon, one big change will be almost going full circle and offering a more personal service and individual design service, I'll explain more very soon I promise.

Much Love
