A little update in the world of Oli Olsen
At Oli Olsen we love all of our brands equally, but we realised that maybe not everyone knows the back story of them. So, we're here to help! First up the amazing Amsterdam based Me & Mats and their incredible products.
Me & Mats are the most positive people around, but it didn't always start that way. The founder Astrid (picture above) lost her son at a very early age. Although this was an incredibly tough time she persisted and realised that she wanted to fill the world with happiness, guts and glory - in memory of Mats.
Their small team in Amsterdam are the most positive people you will ever meet. They may not be able to give you Clooney or Pitt but beautiful Belgian Chocolate will certainly help.
Their collection started with their signature wrapped candles which are all natural based wax that are hand wrapped by people living with disabilities. From there it's grown from strength to strength and now have a range of candles, (tins, boxed and jars) Belgian Chocolate, handsoap, room diffusers, matches and greeting cards. Representing true craftsmanship, sourced with a passion for quality from small family owned factories across Europe. Vegan, fair trade, paraben free, sulphate free.
We are just back from a whirlwind adventure down to Top Drawer London held at Olympia. This year we decided to mix things up a bit by having two stands - splitting our brands in two so they could get a better scope of how they work together.
We were overwhelmed at the response to new products for this season. Everybody loved the new direction Me & Mats are taking especially the boxed candles and chocolate bars. The launch of Metalmorphose, our new keyring brand, saw lots of people stopping to see the high quality of a gift at such a great price.
Here are some pics we managed to get in between all the chatting. Thanks again to everyone who came to see us - we really do appreciate it!
As most people know Social Media is huge right now and it affects our daily lives massively. Don't get us wrong we love scrolling through feeds to see what people are up to and how brands are presenting their products to the public eye. Our feed primarily focuses on our products because, well we think they are pretty great! We love doing colour combinations, interior shots and of course some #motivationalquotes because we all need them at some point.
So here is our social media details why not give us a follow? If you have any inspiring thoughts of what we can do to improve our social just let us know - no hard feelings, promise!
