I’ve always loved to create, the process of coming up with an idea and bringing it to life. I’ve made thousands of things over the years, some brilliant and some not so much, but it’s easy to choose my favorite.
When Meri Meri first began, it was just me, my kitchen table, a bunch of cards and a huge pot of glitter. These days, I’m lucky enough to work with an incredibly talented group of designers and artworkers in our Cheltenham studio.
We’ve had a lot of success and a lot of growth over the past 35 years, which can be put down to two main things. First, we’ve been gifted with a close eye for trends and market patterns, allowing us to keep our fingers on the pulse and our products front and center. Second, and most importantly, we operate not so much as a business, but as a design studio, a network of creatives with one key mantra.
We believe in childhood.
We believe that those first years are magic, and sacred. We believe in the beauty and joy of family, and we put that belief into everything we do. Our lifestyle and celebration products may be in stores and shows all over the world, but our focus is firmly at home.
We want our products to inspire and delight children and parents alike, and along our journey we’ve stumbled upon something truly unique.
Meri Meri has become its own identity, far beyond just me, or even the design team. Our products take on a life of their own, embodying something simple and timeless. Childhood is sacred, imagination is freedom, and there is beauty in absolutely everything.
