We are delighted to announce our new partnership with The Lady Garden Foundation with the launch of an Organic Cotton Tote Bag and mindfulness embroidery kit. By purchasing this bag you will support Lady Garden's vital work PLUS be introduced to your new calming hobby of embroidery for the ultimate switch off as the nights draw in.
TROY will be donating 100% of the profits from sales of the totes bag to the Foundation, with each purchase raising funds and vital awareness for Gynecological cancers, often referred to as silent killers due to their complicated symptoms which can be so easily missed.
These limited edition bags are illustrated by the talented Suzy Cook who uses floral graphics as a playful nod to the female anatomy. Suzy is a creative for many top fashion houses and a passionate advocate for the calming effects of peaceful evening stitching. You will find that each Tote comes with a mindfulness embroidery kit and a guide to stitching in the hopes that you will relax and unwind whilst personalising your new, sustainable carrier.
The Lady Garden Foundation was founded by eight women who have all been touched by these dreadful diseases and have made it their mission to raise awareness and funds to help drastically reduce these diagnoses and the devastating outcomes.
‘Gynae Cancers are a silent killer and we are delighted to partner with The Lady Garden Foundation and get behind this important campaign to raise awareness, and with this Organic Tote encouraging a more sustainable lifestyle, inspiring people to slow down, take a breath and learn a new skill whilst truly taking a moment for themselves.’ - Rosie van Cutsem, co-founder of TROY LondonRosie stitches fireside at home on an early sample
'We’re honoured to be working with our partners at TROY London, whose generous support will help us make a real difference to real women, 58 of whom are diagnosed with a gynaecological cancer in the UK every day, and out of those 58, 21 will not survive. This stark statistic is why it is so important for The Lady Garden Foundation to raise awareness and funds to fight this so-called ‘silent killer’.' - Jenny Halpern Prince, Chairwoman and co-founder of The Lady Garden Foundation
