Founder and designer Lucie – married, busy working mum with three teenage daughters, works as a teaching assistant in her local junior school. Qualified in interior design, Lucie has natural creative skills which she has used to renovate their house with lots of extra clever finishing touches, including the Laundry Ladder clothes airer, drying rack.
Co-founder Julia – married mother of a young boy. Julia is a part time holistic therapist with a background in various businesses who has been brought on board by Lucie, who wanted help in making the Laundry Ladder a success! Julia has worked as an event organiser and a self-employed rep, equipping her with good organisational skills plus knowledge of sales.
Friends since the age of nine, both farmers’ daughters and having gone to school together, Julia and Lucie have made dens, mud pies and now share the trials and tribulations of business! Both in their 40’s they have created Julu which promises to bring you new innovative products which they hope will revolutionise the way you look at your domestic problem solving, the first of which is the ‘Laundry Ladder’.
Five years ago, whilst re-building their house, Lucie and husband decided it was an opportune time to re-think their clothes drying area within a tiny utility space. Wanting to use a pulley maid but realizing they did not have the sufficient ceiling height, Lucie sat down with ‘pen and paper’ from which the Laundry Ladder clothes airer was born. Julia, seeing this product knew she could help with the business side and together they have developed the product for manufacture. It is the most incredibly simple device which really works, cleverly solving many problems people face with drying their laundry and it is genuinely attractive!
