newsletter

PHEW! I sent out my newsletter today, and it was such a tremendous effort. I worked on it for about three days, and Joe spent several hours making it prettier. If you'd like to see it and didn't get it, drop me an e-mail at darien@zolowear.com, and I'll send a copy. We have a discount code to celebrate 5 years, plus announced lots of new prints.

New prints are listed on our home page as well.

Getting closer to signing a lease on an office space. Right now my lawyer is reviewing it.

Jetson is in da house!



We just got the first Jetson ring sling tester last night. I washed it and it came out beautifully. It is the most luscious sateen. It's washed in the photo - no ironing! Very minimal shrinkage as well. We are going to switch around some of the trims, but overall I am so thrilled with this fabric/sling.

We just got the XS, S and L sustainable sable hemp/organic cotton/lycra slings in. They are so gorgeous. They're in our quality control now. Should be available soon!

fabric, travel, office

Work on the hemp slings and pouches is ongoing. We expect them in a few days. The Jetson fabric is back in stock, but this time in a luscious cotton sateen. The sage and cornflower are also now going to be in this lovely sateen.

We're going to New York at the end of the month, for a fabric show. I LOVE New York. The fabric shows are fun, too. Exhausting but fun.

We're also going to Philadelphia to see my SIL and her children.

I'm looking for office space. It's challenging, to put it nicely.

We moved into this house two years ago to make room for the business. It's been so nice to work from home with small children, especially when Clark was a baby. But we've outgrown the space, and having the business in the home gets old.

Work on print publications is ongoing. Still refining wearing instructions, also working on trifold.
