We are open!

We are open!


It has been an exciting time here at Olive & Auburn HQ. Ever since I started my graphic design career almost 20 years ago (oh gosh, time flies!), I had a dream of creating and opening a homeware brand.

I struggled to find my own identity for the brand. Where should I take inspiration from? What would I sell? How do I sell? Why would anyone want to buy into the Olive & Auburn brand? There has been a lot of questions and soul-searching to finally create a brand that I am super proud of and excited for you all to explore.

I hope to launch a new collection each season or as and when they are designed. I’ll be focusing on high-quality products, sustainability and designs that fit around family life, work and all the other things we do these days.

My first collection - British Blue, was inspired by my gran’s beautiful pottery collection. Mostly blue! And never matching. It was a delight to rummage through her cabinet full of items she had collected over the years - from a cat-shaped ornament to a Delftware jug. Things she loved and wanted to cherish forever.

And that is my main aim for Olive & Auburn - I want to design and make items you will want to treasure for years. And then pass on the joy to the next generation. 

All our items are proudly handmade to order here in the UK, using sustainable printing processes on a high-quality fabric.

I can’t wait to hear what you all think. It has been a pleasure and joy creating these beautiful homewares. And I can’t wait to see them take pride in your homes for years to come.
