Part 1: The Story of Sandune, Cornwall.
Introduction to Sandune:
Nestled in the heart of Cornwall, Sandune is more than just a company; it's a manifestation of passion and creativity. Born from the simple yet profound idea that everyone harbors a passion waiting to be discovered, Sandune stands as a testament to the power of following one's dreams.
The Birth of Sandune:
From Idea to Reality It all started over a casual glass of wine, where idle chatter gave way to a spark of inspiration. That night, the foundation of Sandune was laid, not just in thoughts but with a determination to make it a reality. The brainstorming that ensued was not only about starting a business but about creating a space where passion meets purpose.
The First Venture: Crafting Frog Doorstops
Jilly's Design Process: Jilly's childhood memories translated into the charming design of frog doorstops. Each stitch was a step towards realizing a dream.
Jan's Online Presence: Concurrently, Jan's expertise in web design brought Sandune's vision to the digital world, connecting their passion with potential customers.
Expanding into Resin Beach Art
The transition to Resin Beach Art marked a significant milestone for Sandune. Drawing inspiration from the picturesque beaches of Cornwall, these pieces encapsulated the essence of the sea. The process was as much about artistic expression as it was about bringing a piece of Cornwall into homes.
Customer Reception: The unique blend of artistry and local inspiration resonated well with customers, further fuelling Sandune's creative journey.
Collaboration and Growth:
The Journey to Greece Our expedition to Greece was more than a holiday; it was a journey of discovery. Here, we encountered 'Aelia Anna', whose exquisite Peshtemal towels and backpacks were a perfect embodiment of craftsmanship and care. This collaboration was not just a business expansion but a blend of cultures and shared passions.
