I hope you have found all your gifts in time and are now looking forward to the joy of giving, and spending some well-earned time with your loved ones.
I wanted to extend my very best wishes to all our wonderful customers who have shopped with MYTHYN this past year. You cannot fathom how thankful I am as a small business owner, and maker, for your continued patronage.
MYTHYN is now 1 year and 4 months old, and I’ve been plotting the most exciting things I can for the next year, which I cannot wait to share with you in more detail. Below is a flavour in the meantime!
While the business has done very well in the past year since our first Christmas season, I did not launch all the product ranges I had intended.
I have made some decisions about the direction of the business that have delayed the launches. Namely that I want to go even further with our ethical guidelines, switching for example away from plastic containers to glass, as well as reconsidering the use of tussah silk, where I am testing vegan yet still 100% natural alternatives to create a new vegan collection. This is particularly difficult in the case of Mélusine where the silk is inherently part of my process and unique (secret 😉 ) recipe. For this recipe, should I not find an alternative I may keep it as is and move towards using the new process and ingredients in new recipes.
From the feedback I’ve been receiving, I know these two aspects will be welcomed, and I am working excitedly towards these changes.
On a personal level, I expect to have a dedicated workshop area and store early next year, and I am planning to open this space to visitors for collections, shopping & workshops. This will make a big difference to my productivity and ability to stock products while I grow the range. I really cannot wait, and will share developments as I move further with this project.
All in all, this is an incredibly exciting time at MYTHYN and I cannot wait for what comes next.
Wishing you all the best,
