A big welcome to my latest #incredibleindependents interview – introducing the lovely Kashmira from Ant Design Gifts. She makes beautiful wall art which I love! Here’s a bit more about her wonderful business.

1) Why did you start your business?

With the growth of small independent businesses I saw a need for affordable business branding packages – small businesses need strong, well designed brands to give them the best chance to succeed. I then grew my business and started designing and making personalised wall art which I love doing – the whole creative process really motivates me and I love offering solutions to people looking for special gifts to give at important occasions.

2) What do you love about running your own independent business?

I love working for myself and having total control on how and when I work. It has allowed me to be productive at my own pace – which means I get a lot done every day! An added bonus is the flexibility it’s given me whilst raising my two children.

3) What is your favourite product or service and why?

I don’t really have a favourite product. But as a service it’s so satisfying to be part of the launch of a new business or the giving of a personalised gift. I’ve had a small part to play in these special moments.

4) Let’s spread the indie love, name some other independent businesses you support.

2019 is about learning something new for me. I’m currently learning to embroider using a kit bought from @tuskandtwine and I’ve recently taken part in a great course organised by @haidee_drew_education 5) Which is your favourite social media platform and why?

Instagram is definitely my favourite social media platform – I’ve met some interesting people there and and its a relatively easy platform to use.

A big thank you to Kashmira for sharing more about her business and sharing the small business love. Please continue to support your #incredibleindependents – being one myself I know the joy it brings when someone says how they love your wir
