There has been a huge shift globally with reducing waste, up cycling, recycling etc. Our children are getting involved and making wiser choices too and we really need to be leading by example. As a business I strive to reduce plastic by changing our satchels, up cycling our fabric offcuts and loose threads ( I have cushions all over the house now.) Another change I am making and cutting back on what is necessary when it comes to packaging. Ankalia will continue to use Hero Packaging mailers and where possible you will see old satchels being re-used. I encourage you to do the same on your end. Brochures and thank you cards will also be discontinued. With a few upgrades to the website, all information will be there with just the click of a button.
“But I love the hand written notes.” Yep I love them too. But you know what, Im going to start sending personal emails where I have more room to write and thank you for supporting local plus offer any tips and advice on your purchase. We live in this technological world and I feel that this is the right step forward to reducing waste and still being connected with you.
Ankalia has teamed up with Kanga Australia! Yep you heard me right! This is super exciting as Australia’s leading manufacturer of baby carriers and supporting parents in getting active whilst wearing their baby. Stacey, from Kanga Australia, and I have been talking heaps about some custom designed carriers and we are excited to be working with Elizabeth Close, Aboriginal Artist, and Tanya Kalantary to create a custom design for the team and their participants. Keep your eyes peeled for behind the scenes snippets over on our IG.
New buckle carriers are in the works with a few ideas that have been floating around in my head. Thicker waist foam, no waist foam, wrap arm straps, half buckles, more full buckles. So much! These will be rolling out over the next 12 months.
Just some important info for over the next 2 months. I will be travelling from the 19th Feb to the 6th March. No orders will be shipped in this time. The last day for shipping will be the 17th February so if you are thinking of ordering and need sooner rather than later then now is the time.
