As we come toward the end of 2016 we thought it was about time to say a massive thank you to our fabulous team who, along with the brilliant production and logistics team in Madagascar, have all helped in many different ways and have all played an integral part in making up the Ravinala community.
Together we have all made it possible to deliver a fabulous eye-catching collection of stunning hand crafted pieces recognised for their qualities, that can be genuinely called ethical, hand crafted and fair-trade from the raffia roots upwards, and have happily sat alongside other major high street and premium collections. We hope we have inspired many more businesses and individuals to consider the true value and source of their wears before they buy, and to include ethical quality as a standard requirement in their daily choices.
From supportive stockists, to website designers, and inspirational stylists, to talented models, and to a dedicated whatever-it-takes-to-get-the-shot photographer, to the busy bodies around the office, and production workshops who just get things done and make Ravinala a fantastic place to work, we are very grateful for each and every person who has made the last year so enjoyable and worthwhile. Unfortunately there are too many to list in person, but you know who you are, so thank you, for everything. Here's to the next year and new collection (available for wholesale trade to order online now)!
Its finally here! The Ravinala team have been beavering away on something exciting and here's a sneak preview. The new collection has some fantastic new pieces that exude the style, ethos and inspiration of Ravinala and we hope you will love it just as much as we do.
If you're a current stockists, or interested in becoming a stockists and working with us, please get in touch and we'll happily send you a copy of the new 2017 lookbook in the post or by email. You can also preview and pre-order the full wholesale collection in the trade area online.
Keep an eye out for more info and designs in the coming months. The new collection is available to pre-order now for delivery from February 2017 onwards.
Some of you may remember that we celebrated our first team wedding earlier this year as Nasaina, our raw materials manager, and Jemima, team cook extraordinaire, got married.
It is our great pleasure to introduce Nasaina and Jemima's first baby Natane Gaela!
Jemima and Natane are doing well and all are settling into life as a family of three. We've know Jemima and her family for many years now, Natane is the fourth generation we've have the privilege to meet! We're looking forward to seeing him grow over the years and hope that play our part in providing a stable and hope filled future for him through access to education and employment opportunities for Nasaina and Jemima.
We wish Nasaina, Jemima and baby Natane all the best and are looking forward to seeing them flourish over many more years of friendship and partnership.
Following a successful year after exhibiting at Spring Fair 2013 we are all booked in a getting ready for an exciting year to come. We have been working really hard of finalising some lovely new and exclusive designs ready for SS14 that we will be launching at Spring Fair 2014 so make sure you make note of our stand number 20L39-K38 and come and find us near the fashion catwalk this year!
There are even rumours going round of a new collection being launched. Watch this space to hear about it first.
Other shows that we will be exhibiting at in the coming year will be announced soon.
See you there!
