We thought we'd share the story of how these beautiful stamps came about.
We are delighted that the new Women of the World series of stamps have been so well received. The collection had an unusual beginning as it started with a message we received from Tracy Falconer.
Tracy loves crafting and has been a crafter for many years. However, as a woman of colour, she feels unrepresented in the crafting industry. As Tracy said "It is my experience that products depicting people, very rarely consist of people of colour. "
Tracy decided to write to us and a number of other companies asking if they had any intentions of depicting women of colour in future products. We were one of two companies she heard back from.
We sent some drafts to Tracy so that she could offer her opinion before production. She was very pleased,"I was very keen to see what they had produced – well it was no surprise to me to see the images, they were stunning."
