My Brave was born from a coffee conversation between two friends who were discussing an upcoming event, where one was realising a long held ambition to launch her first gratitude Journal. The fear and anxiety that she was feeling was preventing her from enjoying her success. Her friend’s advice? “you need to put your brave pants on – you’ve got this!”
From there the idea grew and the concept of having a high quality, discreet piece of armour that could be gifted to a friend, family member or even yourself to encourage boldness, strength and bravery became a reality.
The journey to find a quality supplier to fulfil our vision was not without it’s challenges and lessons, fuelled with coffee (and the odd prosecco!) we had to don our Brave Pants on a number of occasions! But, we persevered and are delighted with our eventual result. Our 20 year old selves would never have guessed we’d have such an extensive knowledge of Pants, Packaging and Pingy elastic!
The packaging went through many guises before the final design was agreed upon. We wanted it to be innovative, simple and recyclable whilst giving an affirmative gesture of kindness and support. We felt it was important that the presentation envelope was not to be a throwaway item, so we printed affirmations of positivity and support on the inside. It has been designed to stand proudly to remind of your affirmations every day whether that be while brushing your teeth or having your morning coffee.
We know you can’t wear the same brave pants every day, so we wanted to add a little extra that was discreet and unique that you could carry with you daily. Inspiration struck on a family visit to a Victorian attraction, where using wax seals was the everyday norm. We felt like a wax seal would add an element of prestige whilst having a practical use and was in line with our vision. We researched and found a UK based family business who hand stamp bespoke wax seals and we asked them to produce a sample for us. We like the simplicity and quality of our wax Badge of Bravery and hope you will too.
So, we’re putting OUR own Brave Pants on and inviting you to be bold, be strong, be brave and find your own Everyday Brave.
Remember, you’ve got this!
