The PlayBag Company is a small family run business in Northamptonshire. Here is a short biog of the main team players.
That’s me! I am the owner and driving force behind the company, and handle the designing, making and selling side of things. I love the whole creative process from coming up with the ideas, drawing up designs, creating patterns, sourcing the best fabrics to finally putting together the final products.
When I’m not busy creating PlayBags, I can usually be found indulging in one of my other passions: either woodcarving in my shed at the bottom of the garden, or watching Bollywood films.(On the odd occasion I find any spare time in between all the other wife and mother duties of course!). I have also been known to throw the odd baton twirling costume together…!
My fourteen year old daughter and right hand woman! She is also my sounding board for any new ideas, proof-reader, photographer and she sometimes consents to being my model! Caitlin is also a fresh pair of eyes when it comes to quality checking – and trust me! She has an eye for detail and will pick up on any missed stitch!
When she is not helping me with The PlayBag Company, or working her way through her massive load of homework, she is passionate about baton twirling and trains sometimes six or seven times a week, so we can often be found around sports halls. Hence one of the main reasons for creating the PlayBags in the first place!
The inspiration behind the company and chief tester! He is always giving me new ideas for PlayBag and features. He is also very happy to test them out for me and make sure that they are robust enough to handle the rough playing of a four year old boy! Also The PlayBag Company’s top model.
When he is not busy testing PlayBags he is mad about tractors and basically anything with wheels. He also loves going to steam rallies, and generally anything that involves getting outside and muddy!
Bye for now!
