Luxury inspirational homeware and gifts. Proudly handmade in the UK
Hi! I’m Michelle, and I’m a print designer from West Yorkshire. I live in the little town of Brighouse with my equally creative husband, our two lovely children (who’s nicknames just happen to be Bean and Bemble) and our crazy rescue dog and cat we brought to the UK from Qatar. My illustrations and designs are inspired by my love of animals, nature, striking products and gorgeous packaging. I love interior design and enjoy creating a beautiful yet practical family home.
As the proud owner of a first class honours degree in printed textiles and surface pattern design, this new venture was founded in 2020 during the COVID-19 lockdowns. It represents the culmination of months of hard work, combined with years of frustration and a strong desire to (finally!) use my degree and years of experience to create something truly fabulous. My design collections blend intricate hand drawn illustrations with a passion for clean, precise digital graphics to create bright, colourful, uplifting designs, applied to beautiful yet useful household products.
We proudly support British manufacturing and make an effort to be as sustainable as possible.
After returning home from 7 years living in the Middle East and previously working for several multi-national companies which involved travelling to China, I realised how passionate I felt about producing items that are of the highest quality, use the finest materials; and most importantly are lovingly and sustainably made in ONLY British factories. I have always been a firm believer that you really do “get what you pay for”. With this in mind, all Bean and Bemble products are intended to be treasured and last a lifetime.
WHY BUY BRITISH?
The act of buying British goods is great news for the UK economy. When you buy British, you are investing in skilled craftsmanship that has been handed down through the generations, whilst helping to secure the future for British manufacturers. All our manufacturers strive to use materials sourced as close to the UK as they can, aiming to reduce their carbon footprint as much as possible.
