What does an average day look like at Red Rufus HQ?
Most days I get up early and over coffee I check through social media, then I trundle up to my studio at the very top of our house. I do all my administration and paperwork first, wearing the many hats of a small business owner. I pull the raw materials for an afternoon of making and begin preparations, keeping the embroidery machine busy in the background. Around lunchtime, I walk Rufus (my Irish Setter and my business namesake). The majority of my time is consumed with designing and making the product so after lunch I go on with the production which usually runs on through the evening.
