Our product story


“Everything I make is designed to be fun and enjoyable for children, to draw them in and foster their sense of independence.

I noticed that in most living rooms there's a box with a few favourite books. Kids can’t see the covers, so usually drag them all out. I created the Tidy Books Box because I wanted something that would work for the whole family; books of any shape and size, magazines etc. Kids love these next to their bed as well.

I make sure all my designs are stripped back to keep them looking stylish so they blend easily into a home. It’s about creating a timeless classic that can be passed down through the generations.

My designs give kids the freedom to discover their world by themselves- because kids really do know best."
