GIVING OURSELVES A PAT ON THE BACK
At Dotty Fish we focus on the shoes and how we can improve the product offering for our customers. Our mission has always been to provide high quality leather baby shoes that parents can afford. Over the years we have invested in podiatry testing and new processes to ensure our leather meets strict safety standards. We have also introduced sustainable packaging and made changes to our supply chain to ensure we are doing our bit for the environment.
It has been an exciting journey watching our brand grow over the years. Recently we have had some recognition for all these changes and the way Dotty Fish has developed. Let’s face it, everyone likes to hear that they are doing a good job. These awards have meant so much to us as a team and we are so incredibly proud to be part of the amazing British small business community.
