Ahead of Small Business Saturday (3rd December 2022) Central Devon MP Mel Stride has met with founder and owner of Northlew-based business 3Donkeys. Frustrated of not being able to find outdoor overalls designed for women, Amanda Marshall set up her own business to fill the gap in the market. On Tuesday, Amanda received national recognition when she was invited to a special celebration in the House of Lords to mark the initiative.
“3Donkeys sells exclusive 2-into-1 overalls which are designed by women for women. Whether it’s mucking out horses or working on a farm, women have historically worn overalls that are designed for men and this hasn’t always been practical or comfortable. 3Donkeys was established to put this right and the response has been brilliant.”
“I am very proud to have a local business based here in Northlew being recognised nationally. 3Donkeys is revolutionising outdoor clothing for women and it was great to meet Amanda and hear her story. I hope it inspires other businesses to think about whether they are missing out by not sufficiently catering for women.”
