Rew-membrance

Who Are We ?

Rachel Emma Wright (Rew) and Rachel Richardson-Jones (rrj- Surface Design).

We both run our own successful small businesses, (Rew) is an accessory brand which is stocked throughout the UK and overseas, (rrj) is a freelance surface design consultancy, working within all areas of  design.

Having worked on various projects together over the years, we decided our next project would aid a charity of our choice and create timeless designs. 

Why the poppy appeal?

Marking the WW1 Centenary seemed very poignant, enabling us to create a commemorative keep sake to be worn and treasured.

The Royal British Legion helps the whole Armed Forces community through welfare, comradeship and representation as well as being the Nation's custodian of Remembrance.

What is our idea?

Our vision is to produce a limited run of specially created surface print designs and products encapsulating the poppy theme, based upon four unique print designs.Poppies have been worn to commemorate the death of all service men and women since 1914.The remembrance poppy (a Papaver rhoeas) has been used since 1920 to commemorate soldiers who have died in war. Inspired by the World War I poem "In Flanders Fields".

The Scarf

Did you know?

"During world war one pilots wore silk scarves known as the aviator scarf".

Three reasons: 1. To keep warm - the wind whipping around the head and shoulders worked its way under the leather flying jacket. 2. To prevent the leather flying jacket from chafing the neck. 3. To wipe engine grease from the goggles.

 Each commemorative scarf, will be handmade in house at Rew with meticulous attention to detail, 16 cms in width and 150 cms in length.

Scarf composition: Wool polyester mix back / cotton lawn print front.

Care instructions: Hand wash only, cool iron.

These will be packaged in a simple clear bag as we are eliminating high production cost's and focusing on the donation that will be given to the Royal British Legion.

See our pledging options to get your limited scarf today.

 The postcards

Did you know?

"12 million letters were delivered to the front every week"

Astonishingly, it only took two days for a letter from Britain to reach the front in France. The journey began at a purpose-built sorting depot in Regent's Park before being shipped to the trenches. By the end of the war, two billion letters and 114 million parcels had had been delivered.

Working closely together we decided to bring back the postcard, during WW1 this was the main communication between family members and loved ones.

To Bring back the art of heart felt handwriting, rrj has designed a set of postcards so you can pick up your pen and make someones day.

We work very closely with British Manufacturers to create an all "British product ".

 Why we you Crowdfunding?

We decided to use crowd funder so we could reach a wider audience. Whilst we both run successful businesses we are unable to solely fund this project. Crowd funder is a great way to gain an understanding about which designs appeal most before the initial outlay of producing a limited run of designs.

This is our first venture into crowd funding and we hope you make it a great triumph, thus raising much needed funds for the fallen heroes of our time.
