Lily & Mae was founded in 2014 by Nina Austin. The family run business specialises in homeware, babywear and gifts, all hand-illustrated by Nina.
Nina’s dream of running her own business while looking after her new family was the driving force behind starting Lily & Mae. Lily and Mae are her daughter's middle names.
Lily & Mae started with a range of unique homeware that draws on Nina’s love of graphic, illustrated and contemporary design. Earlier this year she launched a baby and childrenswear range - Lily & Mae Mini. Heavily influenced by her daughter's interests and her desire to make interesting unisex clothing, this range continues to show her passion for bold graphic design.
We proudly support British Manufacturing. Our ceramics are English Fine Bone China, hand-decorated in Stoke on Trent. Our tea towels are handmade in Lincolnshire, while our babywear is made in Coventry and hand-finished by Nina.
Our products are carefully and thoughtfully wrapped, making them a joy to open or a pleasure to gift. We believe that your first experience of our products should be when you open the parcel, not with its first use.
