The Wool Towns Advent – December 17
Kitty & Em | Hadleigh
Welcome to The Wool Towns Advent – each day, between now and Christmas Eve, we will be opening the doors on one of the region’s shining stars. Oh come all ye faithful, sing in exultation!
Kitty & Em was born from two girls who worked together for an insurance company. Kitty was made redundant and left to set up her own business, ‘Kitty’s Jules’, remaining in close contact with her old pals from the office.
Meanwhile, Em turned 40 and following a health scare in her family decided life was just too short and that she should search for a new career with a better work/home balance.
Over a ‘catch-up’ dinner, Kitty suggested to Em that they should work together on expanding ‘Kitty’s Jules’ and creating a sister business together.
‘Kitty & Em’ formed in May 2015 as a mobile business, popping up at venues and events in Essex and Suffolk. In April 2016 Kitty & Em found a shop in Hadleigh to call home and the rest, as they say, is history!
A month later they were open for business selling ladies clothes and accessories. “We stock the brand ‘Made in Italy’ – luxurious blends of wool and cashmere, which customers love. The shop is always brimming with bright tones and, as stock turns over so quickly, there is something new to be found every couple of weeks.”
