YOUR BRAND FOCUSES ON HAVING SOMETHING FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY, CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT YOURS?
Alexis is 4, he is such a loving creative little boy. He will spend hours drawing or colouring which is so nice to see. Marlow is nearly 1, she's a very content little one but certainly has a sassy side, she's always making us laugh. My husband Ben is from Yorkshire, we met in London 9 years ago. He's a musician; so lots of creativity (and noise) in our house!
WE LOVE YOUR CHOICE OF NATURAL FABRICS, LINEN, BAMBOO, COTTON. WHY DO YOU CHOOSE TO WORK WITH THESE FABRICS?
I love natural fabrics. For the obvious environmental impact and the benefits of natural products for babies. This journey started when I was able to source some beautiful natural fabrics to make clothes for myself and Alexis. I really fell in love with their texture and the way they hung, that's when I decided to focus on quilts and blankets, to really celebrate the fabric.
YOU ONLY PRODUCE LIMITED RUNS OF YOUR WORK, CAN YOU TELL US WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT TO YOU?
Everything is handmade (by me presently, but I'm hopefully looking for some help in the future) and importantly: made to order. As a small business, the made to order model has allowed me to grow to where I am today as I'm able to work in small runs with small overheads. I love the sustainability of my limited, made to order process; each time I print I know the work is going to a happy home where IT'll be treasured. I also work with a small handful of stores who share the same values as me and buy in small batches that I print exclusively for them.
you have done some stunning commissions, are there any that stand out for you?
Thank you!! Oh there has been so many. One of the first bespoke pieces I made was a quilt for a friends first baby, she is now nearly 2 and still uses the blanket each day which is so lovely to see.
Recently I've been working on a collaboration with UK kids wear brand Organic Zoo for their summer range and it's about to launch. It's been amazing to be a part of something on a larger scale to my normal process and see my prints come to life on clothing!
