Summer holidays are here but, speaking for ourselves, we are running low on new exciting entertainment for our kids. Well, here's an idea to get your kids thinking, creating, designing and tinkering away.
We want your kids (up to 17 yrs, no big kids, sorry!) to create a new wrap design for our Spring range! The BeeBee & Leaf 'Design Our Wrap' competition starts on 22 July 2020 just as the schools close their doors for summer. You could win custom wraps featuring your own winning entry to help you go plastic free!
What to include in your design
Kids! Let your imaginations run wild and create an amazing new wrap design. You might like it to say something important about a cause you feel passionately for. Or feature crazy, whirly designs. Maybe you love animals, or space, or maths. Maybe you will think of something completely brand new and knock our socks off! We can't wait to see.
Remember a fabric design must repeat over hundreds of metres of fabric so a design with different components that we can easily repeat would work best. However, if we love it, we'll make it work!
Sending your entry
Use any program to design your entries, or simply draw your design on paper and scan. Save in a file small enough for email (no more than 8Mb).
What happens next?
The closing date is 1 September 2020 and we will notify the winner by email within 14 days. We will announce the winner shortly afterwards and post the entry on our website and social media.
When will the wraps be ready?
Bringing a new design to our wraps does take time. First we need to create a repeating pattern in the right software, then we send it to the lovely people who grow, weave and print our cotton (cotton can't be grown in the UK). It is then sent to us to wax in Cambridge and we send to you. All in all, this can be around 4 months!
Get creative and send us your entry!!
