COLOUR ME HAPPY
Type of business: Personalised towels Founder: Liesbeth Ramsay Contact: colourmehappyx@
The simple idea of personalising a towel became an interesting business proposition for this mumpreneur. Add gorgeous bright colours and they basically sell themselves. If you see a kid at some poolside somewhere wrapped in a big fluffy towel with their name on it, you can be pretty sure they come from Colour Me Happy. The wording and dyeing of the towels are done using the batik technique, which entails stencilling the wording in wax and dip dyeing it several times to get a brilliant colour. It is quite an arduous process and is still mainly done by hand.
