Each of them with their own stories and doing good things for people and planet. On the 25th of March, we will have a Market at our Kings Cross studio where you can shop and support Tort, Art by NU and Ki Kefir. Swing by from 11am - 2pm on the Saturday the 25th of March.

Tort

About the brand 

Tort is your hair’s best friend. The item you reach for when you want to feel cute, need to make your day (or outfit) better, or hate everything in your wardrobe. Think of us as a jewellery box for your locks.

Long, short, afro, curly, weave, black, blonde, pink, grey: we don’t discriminate. Our clips have been tested on all hair types meaning there’s something for everyone.

Where it all started..

Tort was founded in London by Mona Ghafoori in 2019 after demand from her friends for clips that both hold well, and look cool. The clips are named after powerful women in her life, from a septuagenarian style icon to a trendsetting two-year-old. And because life’s too short to have boring hair.

What’s the Frame connection? 

I have been going to Frame for more than 6 years, I’ve always loved that it’s female founded and it’s where I go to unwind at the start or in the middle of a busy day.

Art by NU

About the brand

Art by NU, is an art & home goods company.  Owned by Anu Ogunmefun. Anu produces high quality prints of her art work. Alongside hand tufted rugs & bags. With unique designs and offers custom orders. Everything is curated & handmade by Anu 

Since starting her business Anu has had her work featured with many businesses and displayed in the flagship stores of Selfridges. 

Art by NU is a big zero waste company. So it’s vital for my small business to have a green stamp. All packaging, from the sleeves the art is presented into the posting packing. Is either biodegradable, compostable or recyclable.

Where it all started..

I’m originally an actor and have appeared in various West End shows, TV & Film productions. When the pandemic hit & we were sent into lockdown. I began drawing again, to help cope mentally with what we were all going through. I posted a few pieces to social media. There was a big interest from people to purchase my work and Art by NU was born. Since then I have acquired other skills such as tufting (& have become hugely obsessed!) And now make my own hand crafted rugs, bags & pillows too.

What’s the Frame connection?

Having danced most of my life. Fitness has always been important and a comfort for me. Not so much for how I look but how it makes me feel. It feels amazing all of my personal passions are coming together in this way. It really feels like a full circle moment.

Ki Kefir

About the brand

Ki Kefir lives by the philosophy that food is medicine. They create the most nutritious kefir available on the market today. They use the finest milk made from cows feeding on organic & regenerative pastures only, this ensures the tastiest, nutritionally dense probiotic that money can buy. Ki are on a mission to create a drink company that truly honours what it means to be healing to the planet and people.Their packaging is also 100% recyclable and bottled in glass.

Where it all started..

I launched Ki Kefir, back in 2020. However, prior to this I had worked in the fitness industry for over 6 years, which is where my love of kefir was formed. Having great appreciation for the power of food on our physical and mental health, discovering kefir was like winning the lottery! As an avid Frame & fitness lover, feeding my body with foods that nourished and replenished me after training was always something that was important and kefir did just that! I believe it’s one of the most powerful probiotics foods available and I was amazed by its ability to really make a difference by supporting my gut health.

What’s the Frame connection?

Working in the London fitness scene for years, I’ve always loved what Frame stands for and their take on fitness. I really enjoy Pilates and Dance Cardio when I get time to squeeze in a class.
