Meet the team! All orders are made by hand by our team in Aylesbury. We are owned and run by our family of three; Rachel, Jamie & Little baby Amelia (CEO).
Hello! We're Rachel, Jamie and little Amelia. We started our business in 2018 after just getting back from our travelling. At first this started as a side business along with our careers however over time our small business has grown along with our little family! We welcomed Amelia to the team in 2020 who has since become CEO of our operations.
Backed by a Virgin Start-up programme we funded turning our garage into a workshop and started making small eco friendly gifts. Our Indoor Herb Garden Sets and range of eco friendly seeded cards have really taken off and allowed us to grow our business into a small team. We're still home based and operate from our home office and garage; all of our products are currently hand made or assembled here in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire.
We wanted to create a brand that creates beautifully designed products with sustainable resources in mind. Products that would match any home or event that wants that rustic, vibrant and minimalist style.
Sustinability Pledge. We try our best to ensure that all our products and packaging are 100% sustainable, recyclable or biodegradable. Here’s a few changes we’ve made so your gift set so it’s sustainable and eco friendly:
- We ditched plastic bubble wrap and packaging for paper alternatives
- We use biodegradable wood wool for the filling
- The seeds are either in kraft envelopes or are wrapped in an eco friendly cling film made from sugarcane bagasse waste. This can be recycled and even if incinerated it will create a carbon positive effect
- The bags the soil and stones come in are 100% biodegradable and can be recycled. We in fact recommend using them to help germinate some of your seeds :)
- Everything is sourced from UK suppliers plus your gift is hand-made with love and put together from our home :)
