One of the main reasons I started this blog was to give fans and followers of BODO UK an insight into what it was like being a CEO of an ethical
fashion start-up and keep them up to date on the goings on behind the scenes of the company.
One of the things that a lot of people involved in start-ups can find really frustrating is just how long it takes to get the ball rolling and get your idea or product out there. There’s always going to be a lot of red tape to wade through, ‘i’s’ to dot and ‘t’s’ to cross, so when you finally start taking those steps towards your vision becoming a reality, it’s a really great feeling.
This week was a good week for myself and for BODO UK as we took what can be seen as the first steps in our partnership with Barefoot Foundation (Pies Descalzos Foundation). We handed over a package of approximately 90 pairs of the pre-production retail version of the BODO Sandal to Barefoot Foundation, so they had the opportunity to see first hand, the quality of our product and decide where best to distribute it.
As my regular readers will know, we haven’t started selling the BODO Sandal as yet, (our retail launch won’t be long though hopefully) however we wanted to get some samples of our product to the people at Barefoot Foundation and begin what will hopefully be a long and successful working relationship with this incredible charity.
It’s a really good feeling to know that it won’t be long before our product is reaching those in need and that we can start making a big difference.
