Its Not Me Its You, London

Aaaand we are back in the room! That was the score-line in the mega Snap game I played against Jems today in the factory. First to twenty. Yes, we should really be making bags, it's just that we are still with our heads in holiday-mode. Anywho, how are we all doing? Did we have a nice time? Happy new year, by the way. Jems and Kitty spent New Year's together, I still haven't exactly understood where or how the night panned out but they did sound very groggy the next day when I called them. I, on the other hand (four fingers and a thumb, thanks Tommy Cooper), spent it at home alone. No, no, now no "awwww"s, please! I was a bit under the weather, aren't we always under the weather? Yep, so I stayed in and followed the ongoing debate on Twatter about what is the "dead" week between Christmas and New Year's Day called. I will admit, it made me a bit angry, especially when Buzzfeed posted about it. Do you want to know what it is really called? It is called Christmas. Christmas, which last 12 days, starts on Christmas Day and ends on the 5th of January. So, Buzzfeed, even the title of your post is wrong. It should read "What do you call the bit between Christmas Day and New Year's Day?" Again, it is called Christmas. They even wrote a song about it, involving turtle-doves and golden rings. Obviously, after all that frustration, my resolution is not to be so pedantic in the coming year.

In any case, I just wanted to write a quick post to say we are back into the swing of things and I will be posting some news in the next couple of days. Lots of news. We hope that 2014 will be as good to us as 2013 was, and that again is thanks to all of you. And we wish that it will be good to you, too. In the end, it won't be that hard to beat 1914, right?

Be the first to know about new stuff going up here. We promise to only send nice, useful things that we feel you need to know about.


Its Not Me Its You is a brand of leather stuff to carry other stuff, made and printed by hand in East London. Each piece comes with a slogan. Set up in late 2012 we pride ourselves on the quality of the leather, the craftsmanship and the foil-embossed slogans. Your bag is a statement, we believe, and with a 'Its Not Me Its You' bag you will be making that very clear for all to see. You can find us here and in Topshop (London).
