My Mission

Hi, I'm Siân! I create colourfully fun costumes and gifts to unleash individuality and set imaginations free. I lovingly create each item by hand, to the highest quality. My items are truly unique, custom created just for YOU!

The Story of Robin's Bobbins

In 2015 my then 2 year old son, Robin, asked me to make him a superhero cape. Rather than buying one I tried my hand at creating my own; Robin was soon running around (saving his little world!) in a red superhero cape with a black 'R' on the back.

A few weeks later he asked me to make him a dinosaur cape (like every little boy, he was dinosaur mad!). I was stumped at first but, after a bit of trial and error, I created a green dinosaur cape with multi-coloured spikes.

 

I enjoyed creating gifts for my friends and their children and, once I started to run out of occasions to sew for, I tried my hand at selling my items. And that is how Robin's Bobbins was born!


I now have two more sons who, with Robin, have quite a dressing up and personalised items collection! They love dressing up whenever they can and, judging by the smiles on passers by, they are very popular!

I get so much pleasure out of creating my items; knowing that each gift is bespoke, for a special someone, is so fulfilling.

I'd also like to tell you know that...

I care passionately about the environment and for supporting the communities around us. 

ENVIRONMENT

  • Sustainability is at the forefront of my business ethos so I create each item with care and the intention for it to last. 

  • I reserve small pieces of fabric for re-using on other items.

  • The smallest of scraps are donated to local schools and nurseries to use for craft products.

  • My products are wrapped sustainably in recycled tissue paper with a recycled paper tag.

  • I package my products in either compostable or paper mail bags.

COMMUNITY AND CHARITY

  • I care passionately about community and support it where I can by donating prizes to school fairs and sponsoring local events.

  • Each year, I donate a portion of my business profits to three charities as chosen by my social media community. Through these charities I aim to represent a spectrum of my core values.

  • Certain products in my store are charity items for which a portion of every item sold is donated directly to a worthy cause.

This is me, Siân, the creator of
