About Our Client

Probably the biggest British success story you've never heard of. Well, until now.

They made their name (and their success) by selling into retail giants like John Lewis, Waitrose, Selfridges and Harrods, helping their customers to "host it, plan it and love it". From eco cups to cake toppers, they've become the go-to brand for innovative, sustainable, design-led products that add fun and style to every occasion.

Today, they have offices in London, New York and Shanghai, selling over 1000 products all over the world.

After 21 years of conquering the B2B market - with a Times Top 500 Exporter and Everywoman Businesswoman of the Year award to boot - they decided to triumph in the world of direct-to-consumer too. After just a year and a half of growth in this new venture, they're ready to take it to the next stage.
