Words by Hannah Beaumont-Laurencia.
Here at Beaumont Organic, whilst August is for holidays and sunshine, it's also a time to start doing some prep for the upcoming colder months!
Whilst factory life in August is very quiet, with most of them taking the month to holiday around Europe, life at Beaumont Organic was quite the contrary as we sold our SS19 collection to stockists all around the world. It was busy (to say the least), chatting with buyers both in person and via all kinds of social media and it's amazing to see how the latter has enhanced and promoted the sales experience for the better. Although we still do trade shows, which this month included a visit to Switzerland and Stockholm, buyers are happy to Skype into meetings and place their orders from the comfort of their stores in destinations covering the US, Peru and Canada.

August has also seen the much-awaited arrival of our luscious Autumn/Winter collection, which contains over 100 cosy, versatile pieces for you to layer up with as the leaves turn brown! Between the stunning shoot (featuring a huge banana leaf tree of course) and the 70 worldwide accounts to ship to, our small team has achieved big things this month.

As always, we work together and support each other like any small team would which means that everything we do is done with thought and love, whether it be the collection, the shoot or our customer orders.
So, that’s it for August! We'll now be working on AW19 and taking a trip to Porto in Portugal to check out our factories
