We wanted to start this note by reiterating that we are a diverse team of like-minded people who wholeheartedly believe in equality and inclusivity. Beyond our team, that includes you, our guests, who – no matter how you identify, whatever your gender, sexuality, race, religion, cultural beliefs, passions or personality – we warmly welcome into our stores and online communities around the world.
We recently were made aware that our 2021 Diaries and Planners currently list national public holidays separately for China and Hong Kong, causing offence to some of our guests. We wanted to formally acknowledge this oversight, and let you know that we have a plan in place already to rectify this for the print of our 2022 Diaries and Planners. We sincerely apologise for any unintentional offence or hurt that this has caused.
Similarly, we are aware that our Public Holiday listing is not representative of all countries around the globe. Quite simply, as our “little brand” grew as quick as it did around the world, we have admittedly not been as fast in finding a solution to cater to all our guests the world over who choose to use our beautiful products to organise their year. We’re working on a solution for this for our 2022 Diaries and Planners, and will be sure to share on release. Thank you for understanding, and we’re sorry it’s not perfect just yet.
We wish you all a wonderful 2021.
