TT Lifestyle expands with two UK brands
Importer and wholesaler TT Lifestyle has added two UK brands to its portfolio, Betty Boyns and Ragged Rose. Discovered at Harrogate trade fair last year, TT Lifestyle has taken on exclusive distribution for both ranges, which are new to Australia.
“We loved the vibrant colours in the Ragged Rose designs and the contemporary feel of the Betty Boyns products,” says TT Lifestyle co-owner Carolyn Parker. “Both collections will appeal to the Australian market.” The new Betty Boyns Country Girl range includes a homewares collection with cushion covers, tea cosies, aprons, tablecloths, napkins and tea towels. Betty Boyns products are sourced, printed and manufactured in the UK and Cornwall.
“We have always been in the business of supplying high quality products to our clients, and when we saw the Betty Boyns designs were made in the UK, we knew our clients would be thrilled to have these alongside our Samuel Lamont and McCaw Allan brands.”
The brand Ragged Rose is a British home and gift lifestyle concept, conceived in 2011 by a former head of buying for various well known UK department store groups.
“Ragged Rose was born out of the desire to create a signature collection of pretty and practical, affordable gifts and soft furnishings, based around a passion for beautiful flowers on a hot summer’s day and a love for strong, vibrant colour. The brand has now evolved and has established itself in the marketplace and is expanding to overseas markets such as Australia with new products.
“The Ragged Rose brand received enthusiast response at the Sydney fair with many loving the matching adult and child retro aprons. We’ve [also] had a great response from our current clients for the Betty Boyns products, with many reordering in a short time frame,” adds Parker. Ragged Rose will be coming to Australia soon, Betty Boyns is already available for wholesale purchase.
