Xanthe Anna

Xanthe Anna

I’m so grateful for the help I’ve received from Business Wales. I feel so lucky to live in Wales and have the access to this service.

Xanthe Anna is a small independent company, designing and creating sheepskin footwear using natural and low impact materials. After a combination of many years of sewing experience, owning a small flock of sheep on a smallholding in Wales and a passion for ethically made fashion, Xanthe Dewsnap, the founder launched the business in November 2021.

Xanthe has attended a range of webinars for the initial preparation of running her business, such as ‘Managing Your Business Effectively’ and ‘Managing Your Finances’. She has also received a wide-ranging package of support from her business advisor, all covering topics on business and financial planning and market research, which has given Xanthe a clear focus on how to succeed and thrive. The advice provided gave her the knowledge to start and run her business confidently.

Xanthe's advisor has also provided one-to-one support to develop a Green Growth Pledge, focusing on end of life, supply chain impacts and creating an inclusive and diverse workplace.
