Naughts and Crosses owner Louise is a delightful girl, we have never met but we talk often on e mail.. lets just say I like her a lot ;)
Why did you choose your business name?
Naughts & Crosses was named after the wooden game I played every holidays with my Nana, The products we choose and make are quirky and have a real sense of nostalgia to them and so it only felt right to name it after a game i have so many fond memories of.
What have you most enjoyed in your career so far?
Meeting all the lovely customers! It makes my hear flutter to hear one of our customers talk about how much they adore something from our range and how it reminds them of their own childhood.
Have you had any major highlights, personal or business in the last few years?
We have had lots of highlights, Nothing is more exciting than when you are contacted by a magazine or a blog you love and told that they love you too!
What inspires or motivates you?
Everything! Children, fabrics, artists, fashion, books and culture, I find a new inspiration and motivation everyday whether it be someone who has made a beautiful cake and blogged about it or one on my 3 year old friends telling me a story about her doll, I am always searching for new ways to transform these ideas and inspirations into products for Naughts & Crosses
..and lastly tell me one things about yourself that you love but has nothing to do with business.
Breakfast! I love going out for breakfast on a weekend! Most of the time i am rushing around and don't stop to eat properly but Breakfast is about the only time I can arrange to catch up with friends and order something I have been craving all week long!
