As part of our Hello, World campaign, in partnership with SumUp, we opened a pop-up shop at 58 Oxford Street, London to enable small businesses to say ‘Hello’ to the world by meeting customers in person and testing physical retail.
Meet the brands that showcased in week four:

BundleBean began in 2011 after founder Emily’s own frustration with the mountains of baby ‘kit’ that seemed necessary when she had two toddlers. Emily realised she had to design something better. Inspired by compact and high-functioning camping products, she designed the BundleBean GO: waterproof, durable, simple to use and totally universal. The range now includes waterproof covers and footmuffs for babys, toddlers and wheelchair users.

In Senegal, basket weaving is a tradition passed down for generations to women in rural villages to make extra income. Travelling there as a child, and many times since, Tabara always found these artisans and their craft so joyful. The dedication and community she felt watching them weaving with their children next to them, under a baobab tree, inspired her to launch La Basketry, bringing colour to modern homes whilst supporting the female artisans in Senegal.
