What an exciting month Prinny Mill has had as we completed Phase 1 of our ‘Face Lift’.
To celebrate the completion of our upgrade we hosted an open day, based on the theme ‘Coffee, Cake and Cocktails’. Whilst also raising money for the Beating Bowel Cancer Charity.
But before we enlighten you with the details of our open day, we’d like to introduce our new Tenant, Kidult&Co.
Established in 2015, Kidult & Co is a British designed Clothing and lifestyle brand. Kidult and Co was started with a purpose; to make children’s clothing that broke the mould. To take a stand against the tide of pink for girls and blue for boys and stand up for the British fashion industry, with a strong emphasis on Made in Britain.
We’re not evangelical about it and we’ll never get all preachy on you, but Kidult and Co firmly believe that what you wear – whether as an adult or a child – should not be dictated by society or anyone else, but instead that your clothes should be a means of self-expression that tells the world who YOU are, not anyone else.
That’s why we just make simple, well-made clothing with great designs and a big dash of style, so that both you and your little ones can look cool and express your individuality, regardless of your sex.
To help you get to know Kidult and Co a bit better we asked them 3 questions about their business.
1. What does the next 12 months have in store for you?
First and foremost, our main objective is for Emily to be able to leave her day job and come on-board full-time for the business, from doing so we will have more time between us to complete tasks, focus on other areas and expand further. Secondly, we would like to increase our stockists and have stockists in all 6 continents (We are currently in 4 out of 6 continents). Thirdly now Melissa and Laura are working full-time for the business we would like to begin attending networking events as well as worldwide trade and runway shows to raise brand awareness and expand our business.
Another objective for next year is to expand our range and focus on different printing methods. We would like to introduce all over fabric prints and have a seamstress in house to produce garments other than T-Shirts, as these have currently been our main focus. We would also like to introduce an organic clothing range to meet broader target markets.
We would also like to continue to help and work with a variety of different charities that have the same beliefs as ourselves going forward in order to help make a difference.
2. Describe your company in 3 words?
Unisex, Innovative, Creative
3. How did you come up with the name Kidult and Co?
'Kidult' means an individual who doesn't want to grow up, it's also a play on the words kid and adult and we sell clothing for both. The 'Co' relates to the 3 of us running the business.

Our Open Day
On the 12th October 2017 Prinny Mill held an open afternoon 3pm – 6pm, in support of the Beating Bowel Cancer.
From our Business Centre Tenants to local Rossendale Borough based businesses and beyond, we were truly overwhelmed by the amount of support towards the Business Centre and, of course, in helping us to raise funds for Beating Bowel Cancer.
Here are some facts and figures from the day...
- Over 60 Attendees
- 45x 'Storage Wars' Competitors
- 25x Tombola Prizes
- 8x Tours of Prinny Mill Business Centre & Storage Facilities
- 1x Magnum of Champagne for the Business Card Draw
- 1x 'Storage Wars' Business Hamper Prize worth £1,000!
- Copious amounts of cake, coffee, cocktails and fizz!
On the day we raised over £500, which is an excellent effort
in only 3 hours from our Tombola, Pledge Boxes and Storage Wars Competition!
We have since, however, had some further generous pledges of support from individuals and businesses who couldn't make it to the event and, we are pleased to say that the total raised on the day is now well in excess of £2,000!!!!!
Oh, we forgot to mention…
