James is an incredibly talented 14 year-old we have worked with for several months now and his cards are very popular in Bold & Brave!

He makes beautiful yet simple lino print cards with a variety of designs that people love!

James says:

"I started making cards in 2019 when my mother introduced me to lino printing, I instantly loved everything about it. After designing and making my first few prints, I realised that I could print my designs onto greeting cards and sell them. I made 15 cards and visited the Blue Pantry in Wellington, and asked the owner if I could sell my products in the shop. To my surprise, they accepted!

My confidence grew greatly. After selling cards in this shop for around six months, I needed to come up with a name if I wanted to expand. I decided to name the business HolloTech Designs (@hollotech_designs). I now sell in Bold and Brave and I feel so honoured to sell my products in the shop. There are so many lovely people and locally made products to see."
