Quinn & Quill London

by Harry Sagoo

Following the birth of baby Quinn one thing became clear. Ever since she can remember, Tee Satanee has had a passion for drawing. The challenges of motherhood highlighted the importance of this passion, as Tee Satanee was often found with Quinn in one arm, and a pen in the other, doodling joyfully in between night feeds and nap times.

It was during one of these night feeds, somewhere between 27th and 28th December 2021, that we made the bold New Year Resolution to start a family business. Luckily, it turns out we were much more committed to this than the gym-related resolutions of years gone by! Within a couple of days we had incorporated and set about planning how exactly we were going to realise the dream we'd dared to turn into a reality. The combination of Tee Satanee's illustrative talents, and Jack's life-long passion for the environment and sustainability led to the formation of an ethical greetings cards business named Quinn & Quill London.

Although we had given ourselves up to a year to launch a fully-functional business, it was in fact just under four months before we launched our website! This was an intense journey; with lots of twists and turns, ups and downs, moments of doubt and frustration. However, all of this has been replaced by the overwhelming feeling of pride having realised our initial vision for Quinn and Quill London.

A definite highlight of our journey has been acquiring certification from Vegan Friendly UK. Meeting their high certification standards gave us a lot of confidence in our vision, and all the motivation we needed to push ahead with bringing it to life.
