I'm originally from County Armagh and now live in London with my husband Ben and our miniature schnauzer, Dallas.
For a long time I have loved a retro and mid-century aesthetic, especially for the home. Since I moved into my own home in 2019, I've been collecting vintage items and decorating eclectically. (You can follow my home journey over on my Instagram account @renovatingretro). I love unique and colourful items that have lots of soul.
I really believe your home should be uniquely you and that decorating should be expressive and a bit of fun.
In 2022, I decided to make my passion a job, so I took the plunge and started my own homewares business; enter Weirdstock.
I love vintage bedding. The patterns, the colours, the fringing..!
But, it was common in the 1970s for homeware or clothing to be made from synthetic fibres, and *fun fact* duvet covers were a more recent invention. Even for driven vintage-hunters, it's near impossible to get your hands on mid-century linens in mint condition or 100% cotton, and a matching sets are like gold dust!
I wanted to make a range that bridges the gap between vintage style and modern quality, while also having a minimal impact on the planet. That's why Weirdstock specialises in 100% organic cotton bedding with a bold, retro aesthetic as well as super soft and silky, hotel-esque quality.
Each product has been thoughtfully designed to be fun and uplifting, injecting some 1970s eclecticism into your unique and joyful home.
Most importantly, I wanted to ensure that Weirdstock was a kind company that takes care of people and planet. Our products are made by skilled workers in India who are paid fairly. We take care of the planet by producing in small batches, using 100% organic natural fibres, no dyes that use harmful chemicals and no plastic packaging.
I hope you have a restful night's sleep in Weirdstock bedding and that our designs make you smile.
Thank you for being here!
