You may have noticed some subtle and some major changes to our branding, website and social media. We have rebranded Bee Happy Hive to Truly Artisan and we just want to take a moment to explain why. This isn't a decision that we have made lightly but it is something that has been on our minds for a while.
Since being able to trade face to face with our customers at artisan markets, events and shows, it is obvious that Bee Happy Hive creates a brand profile with potential customers around bees, beekeeping and hives...
"So you keep your own bees?"
"Oh, so all of your products are made with honey?"
"All of your products contain beeswax?"
These questions have come up time and time again over the last couple of months and when we explain what Bee Happy Hive means, some visitors to our stall look confused and even disappointed... something that as a business we really want to overcome. We want visitors to our stall and our website to totally get what we are about without explanation. We want them to feel comfortable and confident with our brand. We have listened and taken onboard the feedback, we have talked it over (for many hours if not days) and we have decided that a change is needed.
At this point we really want to stress that NOTHING ELSE is changing. Our products and our ethos are all staying the same. The only thing that is changing is the brand name.
Truly Artisan, that is exactly what we are. We are a truly artisan natural skincare company. We make natural skincare, haircare, bath & body plus home fragrance products in small batches (in our kitchen/workshop) using our own recipes and formulations.
- handmade in small batches using the finest natural ingredients and botanical extracts
- cruelty free
- zero-waste, recycable or upcycable, no-fuss packaging
We really hope that this clarifies the positive reasons for the change in the name that we trade under. It is exciting times for sure and as always we are grateful for your ongoing support. Some changes will take longer than others, lables, marketing materials etc will all change over the few weeks.
There have already been some changes in the digital world, our new Instagram is @trulyartisanshop and our new Facebook is @trulyartisanshop. Our website has a new domian www.trulysrtisanshop.com, however our old domain shall continue to work for sometime yet.
Thank you again for your support, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch, firstname.lastname@example.org.
