It's Christmaaaas... competition time!

In the dotte spirit of spreading goodwill and joy, we're announcing our first ever Christmas competition! Get crafty with the kids and decorate our special Xmas Jumper to be in with the chance to win a gorgeous handmade piece of clothing from our competition partner, Emiko Studios.

It is estimated that 12 million Christmas jumpers are bought in the UK each festive season (!) despite 65 million lurking in the back of the wardrobe (according to charity Hubbub). In addition, because most of these are made using plastic, they've become a hugely problematic contributor to our battle with fast fashion. Bah Humbug!

Inspired to help us lower our impact on the planet this Christmas? Not only can you find the perfect secondhand Christmas outfit here on dotte (check out our top edit here), we've also launched our first ever sustainably-minded Christmas competition, hurrah!

A bit of family fun, designed for the little ones but certain to spread festive cheer, you could be in with the chance of winning a  handmade item of your choice from Emiko Studio's shop on dotte – a range of beautifully recycled and stylish genderless pieces. What a gift!

With Christmas so close we can almost smell the turkey, there's no time like the present! Why not throw yourself wholeheartedly into the festive spirit and enter our family competition today?

How do I enter?

For your chance to win....

1️. Download and decorate our Christmas Jumper template! We accept both printed and digital entries.

2. It's time to sleigh! Deck the jumper with glitter (sorry about the mess guys!), go mad with the felt tips, do some collaging, or even create a digital design. All Christmas creativity is welcomed - believe in your elf!

3. Share the creation with us on our Instagram page. Tag @wearedotte in your Instagram Story or Feed, with the hashtag #dottedoesxmas and we'll acknowledge your entry with a repost or share!

4. Get your entries into us by Monday 21st December at midday.

5. We’ll be announcing the winner on Christmas Eve, with the important decision making done by Dot and Lotte (our co-founders' kids!).

Good luck and get crafting! We can't wait to see your entries!

The boring stuff...
