What Makes A Deer & Fox Collective
– by Alex Stalling
Deer & Fox who?
Well we are a transient collective of makers, dreamers, experimenters, appreciators and tea drinkers. We are still new to this big wide world and finding out just where we fit in but the journey has been fun and definitely eye opening.
Deer & Fox Collective – Boutique Designers
D&F started in 2014 when I discovered that I just made a lot of stuff. I am pretty prolific when it comes to getting a bit of craft on, so one day I *harassed* my sisters into the journey of marketing and online business-ing. We happily argued over names, product lines, branding, which markets to do until something that was the bare bones of what D&F is today was born. The three of us have learnt a lot in the 1.5 years of business but the important things remained the same.
We are happy to make, create and hang out. This for us was key, we never started out with a major brand concept in mind, or to turn our little loves into a craft empire. D&F was always, and will always be about the process and that we enjoy it.
We still create, promote and love handmade, artist & designer. Our products embody everything we love about this industry. When we shop for ourselves we love the thrill of the hunt, finding that special something that no one else has. We love to support the individual, the creative the maker.
We create high quality pieces. Each of us at D&F have different interests, skills, loves. Our range showcases that. What we all have in common is an appreciation of quality. We want to buy quality for ourselves, so we want to provide quality for our customers.
