We have been trading now for six months are are very pleased with progress so far.........
It seems there is a good demand for our acrylic wipe-clean tablecloths here in the UK.
The business all came about when Claire, Jenny and I were deciding what our new business venture would be. We knew how popular these tablecloths were in France and other parts of Europe - we use them ourselves on our family holidays in France - and after some research we found that they were not readily accessible to the UK market, and so Franclaire Fabrics began.
It has been quite a learning curve for us; from sourcing and researching the fabrics, importing them, deciding which country shows to attend and keeping up with all the necessary technical know how! That in itself causes us a few headaches. Facebook, Twitter, Google, blogging, and managing our on-line shop are now part of our daily lives, and we still have to try to remember the difference between inches and centimetres!
Many thanks to our husbands, my daughter and Alan, our brilliant web designer who has the patience of a Saint with us.
So, we can report that as well as our cloths now being in many households within the UK, we have supplied Cafes, Sports Clubs, Church Halls, Care Homes and Restaurants with our wipeclean tablecloths. We have shipped to different areas of Europe, Asia and beyond!
Its all very encouraging and we are looking forward to a bright and successful future.
