The Story of Frimble

Sophie Osborne was born in East Yorkshire in 1988 and has been brought up, educated and still lives in Yorkshire from where she operates her business.

Sophie left Queen Margaret’s School Escrick Park at 18 with A levels and headed off on her gap year to South America. Whilst travelling she had a vision of what she wanted to achieve and that was to have her own business.

On her return many months later she completed a 2 year Business Management Degree at The Royal Agricultural College, Cirencester.

After Cirencester Sophie worked hard in a variety of jobs whilst constantly searching for the right business to take on.

In 2012 that opportunity arose and Sophie acquired Frimble of Ripon, a well established country clothing label which she has renamed Sophie Osborne of Frimble.
