How We Got Started
Sister team Dawn and Claire have both always been crafty since a young age with Art and Design playing a big part in both of their education and further studies. Claire bought herself a sewing machine in 2011 and taught herself how to use it and how to sew that year. She then went on to successfully sell her designs and makes via an online market place. Along the way Dawn also learnt this fun skill and made herself items for her home. Dawn is also a self taught crochet addict. In late 2015 the girls started to discuss going in to business together and thinking up business names and drawing up ideas for a business venture. From this Loo and Bert was born.
Loo and Bert the name came about after hours and hours of searching for a business name that meant something and nothing. From the outside it looks like the names of two people but take away the word 'and' and what you are left with is LooBert, or Loobert which is the name of the road the girls grew up on. Which ended up being something very dear to their hearts as it was a happy place for them as children.
