This is why garment decorators generally buy in their stock from reputable sources and those get sold on to high street chains - go down the self-manufacture root to save costs and you're asking to compete with the big boys and pretty much the only way to do that without increasing prices is to use dodgy factories that don't give a gooseberry fool about anything but volume at any cost.

Would you be willing to send a photo if needed? I wonder about trying to get a story run.

Let us know what you pick up.

Been intrigued with terrariums for awhile like how it has its own ecosystem inside the glass and today by chance I came across a store in Shoreditch just specialising in terrariums.
I ended up getting this, what they call their Jurassic Egg range...its got a small bonsai surrounded by moss. Think I'll make my own one sometime.
Its very easy to maintain too just two sprays of water each month.

I potted up a Monstera today looks really nice in my home office :)

I've also got a Kentia Palm in my living room that looks really smart.

Nice one! I find houseplants just bring a lot of life into a space. And I love Monsteras mine is finally producing leaves with upto 5 fenestrations on them :)
Don't have a Kentia Palm as they are too big for my flat but they are nice too.

Thanks man. I worked as a journalist for a bit way back and ASOS were always awful at responding. Nothing will probably come of it but will link you up if I can get something run.

I should say that the translation was done by the Google Translate app so if it turns out to just be someone's name or something then we've got Google to blame. :lol:

It's cute that you got your toddler to take the picture. Those hands!

Wish Hermes would hurry up with my Moana doll, it was supposed to be here on the 12th but didn't even enter their system until the 13th.

Yeah I'd be interested in this as well as I'm really hot on CSR for garment decoration and think this sort of thing needs to be exposed.

It could conceivably mean something like "end of run" but I'm sure that would be some kind of barcode/QC sticker or something like that, not hand written on some random pink label. That's not part of the branding is it (the label itself on the other side for example, not the writing obviously :shifty:).
