Robin and Rose
I studied Fashion Design and love working in the industry, new seasons, colours, styles, the constant change and newness, but every now and again the mass production makes me think a little......
Having grown up on a farm in rural Ireland I always valued the self-sufficiency my parents had, the handmade approach and supporting independent, local businesses.
I really wanted to do something creative for myself, so I signed up for a candle making course in London and I enjoyed it so much I decided to make my own candles which was followed on by a bath & body course.
Generally I veer towards natural products as I truly believe nature knows best - if you can't pronounce it then perhaps you shouldn't use it - I use quality materials for all my products, all sourced in the UK.
I first started selling a weekend markets, then moved on to selling on Etsy and in pop-up shops in London.
I chose the name 'Robin & Rose' because I was obsessed with robins when I was small (apparently the little Robin did everything with me.....my inquisitive imaginary friend of sorts!)
The other thing I love are roses, yellow, ivory, blush, peach, pinks, deep red ones, we had lots of rose bushes in our orchard that have been there for years & years.
I'm not as obsessed with robins now, but I have a very friendly little robin who drops into my garden in London every now and again for a look around!
So thats how the name of 'Robin & Rose' came about.
