In life, I believe we will all suffer at some point. And most of us, at some point, will consider the worst options when you hit the bottom of that mental cliff. I certainly did. 

Covid brought catastrophic consequences to my company, Hand Dyed Shoe Co. Ltd. Overnight, we lost almost 95% of our trade when we hit the first lockdown. I take full responsible for not taking tougher decisions at that time, however I wouldn't change them, even now. I kept all my team, even the ones I couldn't furlough and did what was right for them before considering myself.

By the time we exited the final lockdown, I had spent every single penny I had, and didn't have, keeping the cogs turning but sadly, by this time, it was too late. The company was carrying too much debt and couldn't continue. 

I'd lost my business, my absolute purpose on this Earth (so I thought). I spent months sitting down with experts looking at options. The one thing I was intent on, even in my personal torture, was that we had to find a way where my customers weren't affected. This meant doing deals with our supply chain to produce shoes that they may never be paid for. It meant finding a buyer for the IP and assets of the brand I'd created. All of which was painful and exhausting. But, I did it. 

You are reading this page and are provided with this opportunity because I fought my arse off to stay alive and provide a platform where the brand could survive and nobody lost, other than myself. However, there are now personal consequences, one of which is personal bankruptcy due to myself being the director of Hand Dyed Shoe Co. Ltd. 

When you're bankrupt, everything you own (your estate) is immediately taken off you by the Insolvency Service. You are then tasked with either buying your property back, or risk it being sold on. No prizes for guessing that buying your belongings back is very tough when you're bankrupt!

Nevertheless, my family and I have got to a position where we are almost over the top step in raising enough funds needed to buy back the equity in our family home and eliminate the risk that it could be repossessed. 

Rather than beg and borrow, I have instead come up with this idea which is not only a very personal purchase backed by utter kindness, it will give back to the amazing community I am blessed to have created since I started designing and retailing handmade, bespoke shoes.


On behalf of the entire Bourne family, thank you from the bottom of our hearts
