In honour of International Women's day we thought we would give you an insight into the wonderful team of women we work with behind the scenes here at Kate Sheridan.
I started by business over 18 years ago initially with my friend Helen as Sheridan & Minns. I am proud of the community of great women my brand has brought together and given me the opportunity to work with over the years. I hope to inspire my daughters that they can achieve anything they want and am so proud they they have now joined the team. Lets all hope for an equality driven future!
Amy has worked with me since 2019 as my assistant. Here she is in her element in Cornwall as a true bag lady.
Briony has been a part of the Kate Sheridan Team for the past 5 years. After taking a little break to welcome her third child into the world, she has returned to working with us in the shop part-time.
I have been working with the super talented Hannah for over 10 years. Now based in Margate, Hannah runs her leather factory alongside her assistant Micheala. The bags Hannah produces are always so beautifully made and she is forever working her socks off for us to meet our tight deadlines.
Amy factory is based in Suffolk where she runs her own one-woman operation. We love working with Amy, wherever theres a will she will always find a way and producing our leather and fabric bags to an amazing quality.
The lovely Yasmin started for us in the shop at the weekends while she was at University but has recently started making some clothing production runs for us and we couldn't be happier to be working with her again!
