The Small Print.
The idea for “louvreties”, started 15 years ago when the Grandmother of Inventor David Howarth had a new set of vertical blinds fitted in her conservatory. After asking the fitter if there was anything to tie them back to stop them blowing around when the door was open, a hook and string tie was suggested. Something was clearly needed that would look neat and not harm the fabric. That eureka moment came, “A Blind Tieback”. From the first pair of metal tiebacks made in the garage, a small batch was then manufactured as an engineering project at college. It became clear that a more suitable material was required and that led to the design of the products available today. “ It is a continually rewarding learning curve. From literally a sketch on a notepad, to learning about Intellectual property, manufacturing, marketing, and all aspects of business all be it on a small scale, I feel very fortunate to have seen the project get off the ground, and however success may be measured I feel proud to have done my best with the resources I had and not rushed things, then also to have had the chance to work with some very professional and experienced people. There have been a catalogue of setbacks but its all part of the process.

David is currently completing his final year as a Practising Music student. Whilst studying he is trying to turn the project venture in to a full time business, and realise the products full potential. "There is a fine line between a project/interest/hobby and a business or career. At what point does it change?, That's what I am interested in and perhaps it holds no sway (pardon the pun) as to how you describe it as long as you deliver".
