My name is Jo and I guess you could say that I’m slightly obsessed with the world our children inhabit. With a background in design and early childhood studies, and having 3 kids of my own, it seemed natural that I would start my own business designing for children. While pregnant with baby number three, I dreamed up ‘little village’ now known as ‘little village handmade’.
The idea behind ‘little village handmade’ was to create something unique that would spark the imagination. Not just a cushion, but something that could be part of a story, something meaningful to each child. I have always loved the tiny details - hand dying fabrics to achieve the perfect colour, searching high and low for the perfect trim, sketching for hours to create the perfect characters. Simple details, yet each one is thoughtfully designed and crafted with great care.
Made with love, to be loved.
