Julia and Lucie, old friends from school set up their business a few years ago called Julu Ltd.
It started when Lucie having rebuilt her house came up with a design for a new clothes airer. It was a revelation as it didn’t need ceiling height, nor did it take up valuable floor space. Anyone who saw it was immediately impressed and thought that there could be a market for the product.
Julia with a little business experience in the gift industry, agreed to step up to the challenge, joining forces with Lucie she was able to bring a drive and vision and creating Julu they set about developing the product for manufacture.
Dealing with designers, manufacturers, solicitors, IP specialists looking at different materials, construction, feasibility, costs and their implications, took both into the unknown and was the beginning of a steep learning curve.
Slowly but surely the Laundry Ladder was born and in November 2014 Julu launched it onto the market with spectacular success receiving extraordinary public approval and increasing sales. The girls have been to numerous shows i.e. The Country Living Fairs and recently Spirit Fairs run by Homes and Gardens. Their British Design is both strong in functionality and aesthetically pleasing; wanting to keep it British they were pleased that some of their products are made here in the UK and some they import from Europe.
Julia and Lucie are looking to the future by adding some exciting new products to the Julu brand. They hope to become a trusted household name synonymous with quality and integrity bringing lots of lovely practical things into your home.
