Founded in 2011 after being inspired to design again by her children, former Retail Homewares Buyer and Surface Pattern Designer Helen Gordon saw an opportunity to create a distinctive UK brand.
Using her great love for pattern, colour and texture, original hand painted prints were designed for a collection of children's clothing and accessories. Her designs have been influenced by her passion for children's vintage stories/illustrations, and Scandinavian folk patterns, and her designs are timeless, non trend led and are pieces to be treasured.
As the Helen Gordon brand has evolved and her children have got older her work has developed to include more varied imagery that appeals to both adults as well as children. Through her passion for interiors, she has found herself designing new ideas for the home and in 2015 she has launched her first dedicated Homewares collection under hew new lifestyle brand.
With a distinctive retro feel and striking colour palette the collection includes fairytale babywear and children's pyjamas and accessories, kitchen textiles and accessories, mugs, cushions, wallpaper and gift accessories.
Built on a foundation of quality and ethical ideals, only the best quality materials are used.
All her prints are painted by hand in Helen's studio in rural Oxfordshire where she lives with her sculptor husband, and three children.
The brand really understands the value of quality and producing classic practical clothing that has longevity.
It has been at the forefront of a trend to bring back manufacturing to the UK by producing the collection in various small factories all-over the UK.
Synthetic fabrics are never used, only the best 100% cotton and several organic ranges have been introduced using cotton that is GOTS certified, free from pesticides and artificial fertilisers.
The collection can be found in stockists both in the UK and internationally and the brand can often be found exhibiting at boutique markets and various lifestyle and trade fairs around the UK.
