the brief

The Wool Garden is a designer yarn and knitting shop, based in Newent, Glos.  As well as stocking a huge range of unusual yarns, they also run courses on knitting, crochet and spinning.

The Wool Garden already had an e-commerce store through using Magento Go, a cloud-based store provider, but wanted to extend their product range and have more flexibility over their site content and designs.

what they got

I-lateral rebuilt the site in an open source, community version of Magento, which allows all pages to be fully editable as well as no limit on number of products.  The new community site provides:

  • A full featured CMS that allows 'pages' to be edited, created and deleted easily.
  • Integration with social media and blogging account.
  • Integration Worldpay and paypal as payment providers.
  • Mobile friendly design
  • High availability hosting.


what they said about i-lateral:

"i-lateral are a really great mixture of back room technology and front of house marketing. They are helpful at both the designing and running of the website and are extremely prompt when dealing with any issues that can arise. Human, friendly, supportive and patient – I would recommend them to anyone thinking of using a website to enhance their business."
