Doing something good with the skills I’ve learnt, while also having the chance to be creative, has always been something I’ve wanted to explore.
The idea with Kratan is to create an online store where approved artists can submit work to be sold as t-shirts. 100% of profits go to the artist’s chosen charity, not a single penny is taken from myself or anyone else connected with the business.
The only thing holding back the idea from starting is technology. Drop shipping is still not at the stage it needs to be as it's not consistent and reliable enough. The brand 'Kratan' at launch will become my own personal brand in the store with a more relevant brand taking over as the main business.
Having had meetings with people in business, charity and fashion - the idea has been well received.
