Our principles when starting the business in 2007 are still its core ethos today.
To make people proud of themselves & help them be the best that they can be.
We aim to do that with our customers , employees & anyone we meet along the way.
Our 1st step in doing this was to address our local culture.
When we were growing up, there was a definite stigma about being from the Black Country & it was something looked down on, particularly if you had a strong regional accent.
So over a pint & a bag of scratchings we decided our aim would be to turn this into something to rejoice & feel lucky about.
So we set about making people proud about their area and where they live and subsequently themselves, through the promotion of local culture and it’s humour with our range of Black Country gifts & funny videos.
This method of approach has been an amazing success with our t shirts & mugs being sold to people in over 10 counties & our Black Country alphabet video now being taught in local schools as an example of colloquialisms.
This ethos is easily carried into our custom work, by improving ourselves, employees and making others feel good (either our customers or as an ambassador for our area in the way we do business).
What Is The Black Country?
The Black Country dialect often substitutes the word “ar” for “yes” and “I haven’t seen her” becomes “I ay sid ‘er”. .
Broad Black Country speakers say “agooin” instead of going.
Black Country people are proud to be known as Black Country “folk” and resist hints at any relationship to people living in Birmingham, calling Birmingham “Brum-a-jum” or Birminam.
“Ar Bay A Brummie Arm from The Black Country” is a common saying amongst the locals.
Brummies often refer to their Black Country neighbours as “Yam Yams”, because of their use of “Yow am” ( or yow’m) instead of “You are”.
