We are three of five siblings who started the venture in 2014 after our Dad’s battle with a very aggressive and life threatening illness earlier that year. Hannah, who was living in Australia at the time, left her Aussie life behind and moved her family back to the UK to spend precious family time with Mum, Dad and Luce.
Whilst the idea was initially to start a venture which would act as a positive focus during difficult and emotional times, it proved to be so much more and has gone from strength to strength.
Dad was the greatest supporter and champion of Willow and Honey, not to mention a skilled 'wick sticker' and 'overseas sales rep'! Shortly before he sadly died in May 2017 he expressed how dearly he wanted Willow and Honey to grow from strength to strength and be the success he always believed it could be. What better driving force to move us forward in the months and years to come.
2020 was a year none of us will ever forget. We all woke up to a strange new world, and had to change our lives in ways we never expected or thought were evenly vaguely possible! We had to think hard about what our next step would be - with the majority of our independent stockists sadly unable to restock many products.
We thought long and hard, listened to feedback from our loyal customers and are extremely excited to announce the latest chapter in our journey to creating your gorgeous, happy home - Willow and Honey Homewares, a fabulous collection of interior goods from a selection of stylish brands all around the world. But most importantly of all, all committed to the same environmental ethos as Willow and Honey – recyclable and planet friendly.
Willow and Honey continues to epitomise the love and support between family and friends - something we have learnt the importance of over the last few years - and for which we are truly grateful.
