Sadly, Covid put the kibosh on our autumn ’21 relaunch: Our Slovakian factory reopened in the summer but with reduced capacity due to lack of staff and one less production line, which means their big brands have block-booked production slots for months ahead and everyone else has been squeezed out until 2023. After 18 months of sampling with them and investment into products, website and digital assets, we are naturally GUTTED. But you can’t put a good boot down… so we’re moving …
Hello Sri Lanka…
We’ve spent the past few months searching for other sustainable rubber boot factories in Europe. They proved hard to find. So we've gone back to our Sri Lanka factory (who have been closed to new business since March 2020 until recently). They are an FSC-certified factory who we know can make our boots with Fair Rubber to a high standard. As SL has recently come out of lockdown, it will be spring 2022 before they can schedule us in. Being sustainable and small is not an advantage in terms of production economics. The other silver lining is that by 2022, shipping costs will not be so high and it will be easier to ship to the EU.
Earlybird discount will remain secure until we can relaunch. Click HERE to get on the waitlist.
Corsets were a popular fashion trend in the 1800s designed to create a sexy hourglass figure by pulling in the waist and augmenting bust and hips. Today, corsets are growing in popularity again and can be worn both under or over clothes, as a top or a dress in itself. Apart from being a major fashion statement, they also give the appearance of killer curves. Here are five fabulous ways you can wear them:
1. Corsets and Skirts
Corsets can also be worn with different skirts. Team them with a high waisted pencil skirt in the same colour to fake the appearance of a dress or wear it with a different colour to make it pop. You can also wear it with a full circle skirt, making a classic style look extremely sexy. However, be careful while wearing a corset with a mini skirt. The corset itself is loud enough so make sure to tone it down a little.
2. Corset dress
Corset dresses are popping up everywhere in different shapes, styles and colours. These are perfect to enhance your curves. They are simple but certainly make a very effective statement.You can also wear your corset over a plain, boring dress to instantly jazz it up. Wear a floral corset over your plain white dress or a leather corset over your patterned unflattering dress. Don’t be afraid to experiment with various materials, bold patterns, colours.
3. Corset and Jeans
Wear it as a top with jeans to make it a sexy feature piece for an evening out. If worn with high-waisted jeans it looks like a jumpsuit-with-attitude. If you don’t feel comfortable exposing your arms or shoulders, then throw on a jacket or a blazer. Go for different fabrics, from cotton to steel-boned. Wearing corsets can enhance your femininity and confidence. Make sure you buy them according to your body shape and type to ensure they’re effective, comfortable.

4. Underbust Corsets
Underbust corsets are worn just below the bust and usually end at the beginning of your lap. They are very versatile but look particularly good when worn with a black or white frilly shirt. You can also wear them with almost any dress or skirt to give your bust a lift as well as the illusion of a slimmer waist. A classic piece of clothing like this is a great investment and a must-have.
Corsets can also be a part of your bridal costume. Wear it under your bridal gown or over it to create a classic hourglass shape. A corset made up of smooth polyester, satin or nylon will work best under a gown. Opt for a pale pink or white corset so you can match your skin tone perfectly under a sheer bridal dress. It will definitely be unique and sex-up traditional bridalwear.
