Last year we won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the field of Sustainable Development – the first ever for a fashion company!

To celebrate, we had a visit from a very special guest, HRH Princess Alexandra. Needless to say we were extremely excited! On arrival she was greeted by the Seasalt team and offered flowers by some of the team’s children.

Princess Alexandra was given a full tour of Seasalt HQ, where she met and chatted with various team members.

After all the excitement, we headed outside for a delicious Cornish ice cream.

Five Fun Facts About Cornish Gorse

posted on July 14th, 2014 by Laura Ellis

Kissing is out of fashion when gorse is out of blossom

 

Gorse is a common site across Cornwall. It fills our countryside and coast paths with gorgeous colours of yellow and green, delighting folk and inspiring artists. This year, it has also inspired our designers and gorse yellow has become a staple colour for our newest collection.

In honour of this inspirational shrub we have put together five fun facts about Gorse for you:

  • It has a wonderful, coconut aroma – some individuals experience this more strongly than others!
  • It’s edible and has a fruity, pineapple taste! You can make a rather delectable pickle with the flowers, or even a wine. Our favourite way to eat them is to simply add the raw flowers to salad for taste and colour – watch for their hefty spikes when picking though.
  • “Kissing is out of fashion when gorse is out of blossom” is a traditional Cornish proverb. (We’re a passionate bunch down here, common gorse is permanently in bloom!)
  • Gorse seeds are produced in elongated pods that noisily burst open when ripe!
  • Gorse has had many uses over the centuries, including being used as fuel, grazing stock and thatching for houses!

Seasalt guide to rockpooling in Cornwall

The summer holidays are nearly here, and it’s time to get out and about on the beach.  As well as the usual activities of building sandcastle, taking a sea swim and playing some beach tennis, Cornish beaches are great places to go rockpooling.

Meet the team: Adam from Finance

posted on July 11th, 2014 by Laura Ellis

Processed with Moldiv

Ever wondered what it’s like to work at Seasalt? We’re going behind the scenes to show you some of the people that keep Seasalt running.
Below is a little Q&A with Adam, one of our Finance Technicians.

How long have you worked at Seasalt?
Two and a half years

What was your experience before joining Seasalt?
After completing my A-levels at Redruth School I worked full time as a yacht broker for just over 2 years until I moved to Seasalt.

What does a typical week in the Finance team entail?
In my previous role, I worked on the Sales Ledger where I particularly enjoyed speaking to our wholesale customers. In my new role in the Financial Planning and Analysis (FP&A) team I generally have a mix of project work and planning and reporting tasks which tie into our budgeting and management accounts processes. Most of these jobs entail working with colleagues from inside and outside the Finance team to ensure that the business has useful, accurate, timely information.

What have been your biggest achievements since joining Seasalt?
I am really proud to have completed my AAT qualification. This has helped me to better understand processes in the Finance team and to develop my technical skills. Another achievement has been researching, developing and helping implement a new expenses policy as part of a project group. Seeing a project through from the beginning, sharing it with the wider company and now using it day-in, day-out has really allowed me to take responsibility for this process.

What do you hope to achieve in the future?
I have just started to study for the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) qualification so I am looking forward to studying for – and in time passing! – this qualification, while building on my knowledge and experience in my new role in the Financial Planning and Analysis part of the Seasalt Finance team.

What is the best thing about working for Seasalt?
Definitely the support – whether it’s the guidance available from individuals across the business or the support provided by the company as a whole, which has allowed me to gain my qualification as well as developing my experience as the company continues to grow.

What have you learnt that has surprised you most since working for Seasalt?
I have been impressed with the opportunities available within the company and the confidence shown in both the product and members of the team. It is also great to see the attention to detail and the uniqueness of Seasalt products, right from the planning and design stages through to selling the product in our own shops and online.

Must have Seasalt product?
Bosun’s Boxers of course!!!
