You could say, I was born to do this… I was born COVERED in spots.
A nurse walked in to check on my mother, looked at the chart and said “aww, Charlotte” looked at me and then proclaimed “Spotty Lottie!” My poor mum burst in to tears and the rest as they say, is history. When I launched my brand in 2009, there was really only one choice for a name!
Spotty Lottie began as a womenswear clothing and accessories company. I had graduated from University and needed to use my Fashion design degree somehow. I rented a space to work from, it was freezing, a bit damp (a pipe actually burst once and flooded the whole room) but it was a dedicated workspace and I loved it.
I’d found a freelance job for an independent kids store called Up to Seven. They needed a seamstress and the fit was perfect. I’ve been sewing for them for over 10 years now!
Over time, kids clothes replaced adults, and Spotty Lottie evolved in to what it is today. I’ve been running Spotty Lottie full time since 2013 and I absolutely love it. When my partner and I bought our first house in 2014, I stole the master bedroom and have been working from home ever since. With his support, and that of my amazing family, I’ve been able to grow my online presence worldwide and also attend many local markets too. With over 7000 sales on Etsy, I felt it was time to take my business in to my own hands and launch my own website…
