The ramblings of Hayley & Lucas

Mollie Makes Home

Posted on 4th October 2013 by Hayley & Lucas

We were excited this morning to receive our copy of the new Mollie Makes Home magazine in the post.

We were doubly excited as the lovely Caroline Taylor had asked if we would be happy for our home and office to be included in the issue. Of course we said yes!

Our favourite photographer Fanni Williams provided the images for the feature, and the office was tidied from top to bottom for her visit! We have since moved on from the house in the article, but we will always have Fanni's wonderful photos to remember it by.

We were delighted to have the opportunity to answer Caroline's questions about our business and homelife. 

The magazine is beautifully put together and filled with gorgeous homes and workspaces, not to mention some super sweet craft projects. We are so happy and flattered to have been included alongside such beautiful spaces. Thanks so much again Caroline and Mollie Makes Home!

The issue went on sale in September so be sure to pick up a copy soon!

It's our Birthday!

Posted on 27th September 2013 by Hayley & Lucas

Alphabet Bags turned five over the weekend! We can't quite believe it's been five whole years since it all began. Back then we were working from a tiny second bedroom in a small flat and never imagined we would be where we are today. 

Five years ago we launched Alphabet Bags with just one collection, natural cotton bags with bold black initials. I can still remember the day our first delivery arrived, there were lots and lots of boxes of bags and we stood there wondering if we would ever be able to sell them all. Five years later and we now have over 10 product ranges and a whopping 13 initial collections! We have loads more new things in the pipeline and in our heads too. 

Over the years we have been lucky enough to have our products stocked by some of our favourite retailers including: Selfridges, Paperchase, Madewell, Heals, Urban Outfitters, Colette, Barneys in Japan, not to mention numerous amazing independent stores around the world. 

We feel incredibly lucky to still be working together and doing something we love. We just wanted to say a huge thank you to all of our lovely customers, suppliers and stockists who helped us get to where we are today. We are so grateful to each and every one of you for your support. 

Here's to the next half decade!

With love, Hayley & Lucas
