Children love to show off their age on their clothing. Every additional month is an accomplishment. Until about 10 that is and then it all just sort of stops. One of the last remaining taboos is to ask a woman her age and ladies guard the secret of their years tightly, worried that they will be marginalised or overlooked. Which sadly may be still be true.
I'm thrilled to be the age I am. And there is a growing amount of research that suggests women over 50 feel more confident, sexy, relaxed, uninhibited and powerful.
As part of my crusade to champion seniority and dismiss the dreary stereotypes that we are supposed to conform to, I would love to see women happily wearing their age on their clothes again, and feel as proud of being 80 as they did of being 8. They've a damn sight more to be proud of for starters.
These numbers are printed with flock fabric. We're happy to do them for men too. Please just write the age you'd like in the message box. We are happy to write personal messages on request.
We also have some number inspired by dog racing graphics. Originally made to go on the bums of babies nappy covers for a spot of NCT Baby Racing to spice up turgid coffee mornings, but darn, they look so good on a cardie. Numbers 1, 3, 4 and 5 available in this design. And ll numbers available in the spotty design.
