OUR STORY

This range brings together two talented local creatives: designer Zoe Mingos and photographer Mary Tebje, both inspired by what we see and enjoy everyday near our homes in the Chilterns - sometimes further afield. 

Designed to appeal to both local residents and visitors to the region, the two distinct ranges include;

Kites and Clouds and A Year in the Chilterns. ​

 

During our 2020 Lockdown walks together, we explored how best to combine our complementary skills to design and develop a new gift range reflecting what we love about our naturally outstanding home. Mary’s work promoting and writing about travel and tourism to the Chilterns, and Zoe’s design career creating award-winning product ranges for brands such as The Great British Bake Off and heritage organisations including Historic Environment Scotland and Hampshire Cultural Trust brings synergy to our work. 

Our environmental footprint is very important to us. Our supply chain is short and we are proud that all our products are manufactured either locally in the Chilterns, or with specialist producers in England; in Stoke for example. where our fine china mugs are manufactured. 

We are very pleased to be able to share our venture with you and hope you enjoy using and sharing our gifts.
