An Interview with Ellie of Dearest Fannie

If you met me in a pre Covid world at a vegan festival you will probably know that one of my favourite items in my skincare regime is my Ditsy cloth. I have been using it since May 2019 and after a wash it still looks and feels like new and is still very effective at removing makeup with just a bit of water.

Dearest Fannie are the brand behind the ditsy cloth, started by two sisters, Jessica and Ellie, that I have had the pleasure of meeting at a number of vegan festivals round the UK. This week Ellie shares how the brand was started and the unusual dinner party of her dreams.

Enjoy!

TELL US ABOUT HOW YOU STARTED DEAREST FANNIE

Dearest Fannie was born in 2018 by sisters, Jessica Duff and Ellie Duff, that’s me! We had become vegan in 2017 and ever since that point, we knew we wanted a vegan business. Veganism taught us so much, it was a gateway to learning about animal rights and the climate crisis and how the two were so closely linked. We decided we wanted to create alternatives that were vegan, cruelty free and sustainable. Dearest Fannie became our way of activism.

WHAT MAKES DEAREST FANNIE SO UNIQUE?

I believe the ethics of Dearest Fannie is what makes us unique. We really care so deeply, and it is engrained in our business. It’s cool to care and Dearest Fannie represents that.

WHAT DEAREST FANNIE PRODUCT MAKES YOU MOST PROUD?

I am most proud of our Ditsy Cloth. It’s our best-selling product and reduces waste drastically. It’s available here on The Greener Beauty.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR DAILY BEAUTY ROUTINE

I wash my face with cleanser, apply toner and add a serum on top. I then wear some light makeup, including mascara, concealer and brow product. I remove all my makeup with my Ditsy Cloth in the evening and apply my skin care again.

ITEM OF MAKEUP OR SKINCARE THAT YOU COULDN’T LIVE WITHOUT

My Ditsy Cloth of course! Imagine never having to worry about buying makeup wipes again?!?

FAVOURITE FOOD?

I mean you can never go wrong with penne arrabbiata? I also love Asian food; Japanese, Indonesian Thai to name just a few cuisines…. And anything spicy, YUM!

IF YOU COULD CHOOSE THREE DREAM DINNER DATES WHO WOULD THEY BE?

People I would love to meet and have dinner with would probably be Munroe Bergdorf, Einstein and maybe the artist Olafur Eliasson. They’re all pretty cool!

WHAT DO YOU DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?

I like to read, learn new things, run in nature and socialise with friends. I also love charity shopping and going to vegan restaurants 🙂

WHAT SONG DO YOU LISTEN TO THAT ALWAYS CHEERS YOU UP?

Any of Moby’s greatest songs… He also happens to be vegan!

IF YOU COULD VISIT ANYWHERE ON EARTH WHERE WOULD YOU GO?

British Columbia in summer!

IF YOU WERE A SUPERHERO WHAT POWERS WOULD YOU HAVE?

Maybe powers of persuasion, I could make some more people vegan? haha. I could also try and save this world; wouldn’t that be nice?

WHAT ALWAYS BRINGS A SMILE TO YOUR FACE

My dogs!

TELL ME ABOUT YOUR PROUDEST ACHIEVEMENT?

Probably going Vegan, it’s the best thing I’ve ever done.

WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS FOR DEAREST FANNIE?

Once I receive my powers of persuasion, it will be world domination! Just kidding. Dearest Fannie will be a known brand, and we’ll have many more eco-friendly and vegan products.
