At Pot-Teas we handmake our cosies to perfection for the more discerning customer who looks for quality performance and style.
After twenty years in business as a Chartered Accountant, I decided that doing something I truly loved was my new normal, and that was being creative and sewing.
My business also helped me to be at home with my children as they were growing up, something working for others did not enable me to do. I still have my accountancy stripes and a business degree which has helped tremendously with the business, and I have not yet hung up my calculator!
My first brand I created was a success, so much so that I had lots of fabric left over that I was determined to use and not add to landfil. This lead to my second brand the Pot-T®
My late mother always commented on how difficult it was to find a 'decent' tea cozy, desperately clinging on to one she purchased many years earlier as others were just not right for her pot. So with her remit and my creativity the Pot-T was born; curved, insulated, in 4 sizes and many colours and patterns.
Clearly a play on words, but a nod to the unique nature of the design in so far as it is 3D, insulated, 4 sizes and not flat like most tea cosies on the market.
The three dimensional concept came from the size of the waste fabric we had left from another of our products, and this maximised the amount we were able to reuse, we also found it the most insulating shape as it sits cleanly on the table and does not created a 'gape' at the back.
We now offer some of our products in fabric that is not recycled, and purchased specifically for the product it is intended for, although we will always make products from offcuts of the sewing process as well, making them truly unique.
Look out for these as well as our limited edition designs that are exclusive for our NOTHS customers.
