An inspirational trip to Findhorn, an eco community near Inverness in Scotland resulted in the creation of Cotton Roots. Watching the seals in the surf on a beautiful beach the idea just came, and now here we are. We are a company specialising in the manufacture and supply of Fairtrade, organic and recycled clothing. The clothing is designed for company uniform and school uniforms.
There have been many more inspirational moments. Most importantly the visit I made to India to visit the cotton farmers who supply our cotton, the school in Gujarat funded by Fairtrade and organic cotton farming, the enthusiasm of those who work at Cotton Roots, and the death of my father which resulted in me re-evaluating the purpose of life.
Since the creation of Cotton Roots I notice the beauty of the sky, the clouds, the mountains and realise how small we are but also how important we all are in the way we make our way through life. I try my best, sometimes fail and then try again.
An exciting life and an exciting company. I love it!
