THE STORY BEHIND HAY BABY
Following the birth of my son, I wanted to find stylish clothing for babies and children that sat happily with my conscience; garments made from ethically sourced materials that had been produced by companies that respected their workers and the environment.
I began to make bits and pieces for him, his friends and family - from recycled fabrics - and encouraged by the response I got, I launched Hay Baby.
The t-shirts and other pieces I decorate are fair-trade and made from super-soft organic cotton. Nothing is mass-produced; the whole approach is personal and items can be made to suit each customer’s wishes. By using vintage and recycled fabrics and buttons for the appliqué, bunting and bags I’m recycling and giving old – often favourite – pieces of clothing a new lease of life. Each piece is very special and makes a great gift when you’re looking for something for a little different.
Following success at local markets and craft fairs, I opened and ran a shop in Hay-on-Wye for a few years, but decided, last Summer that running the shop was taking up too much time and wanted to return to my first love - sewing and designing. I now work from home making one-off pieces for my customers and I sell a small range of goods through Not on the Highstreet and Etsy.
