News from the Hybrid Handmade Husband

Whilst my workshop maybe a little bit out of commission at the moment (however, it is looking likely that I will be up and running again next week after locating a space in a rather delightful garden shed) elsewhere in the Hybrid Handmade 'Home' things have been rather busy.

The Hybrid Handmade Husband took the Mojito shoe to the Start Up Hub competition.  The event showcased new, emerging businesses and entrepreneurs.  The Mojito received the highest number of votes and the Hybrid Handmade Husband had a chance to present 'the shoe' to no less than the Prime Minister, David Cameron.

Gwyneth Paltrow kindly donated her pair of Mojitos for an auction in support of the 'Stand Up To Cancer' fundraising event.  You can read more about it here.

And if all of that wasn't enough, the Mojitos got a monochromatic mention in the Wall Street Journal.

I have to say, it is rather difficult keeping track of all the comings and goings associated with these shoes and their creator!  (I confess, that sometimes I just check the facebook page to keep up to date)

You'll be glad to know that I proudly wore my pair last night teamed with a smattering of Hybrid Handmade jewellery.
