About Us

We're the creative sister duo behind Martha & Hepsie, and we're all about embracing the values of togetherness, optimism, authenticity, colour, and creativity. Our journey started back in 2011 when we decided to make our passion full-time.
With backgrounds in design, we've worked hard to build a successful business, all while juggling family life and its many demands. Our colourful homeware and gifts have found their way into homes worldwide, including gracing the shelves of John Lewis stores as part of their 'made locally' initiative.
We've also had the pleasure of working on a number of exciting collaborations and wholesale projects along the way, including work with the British Skin Foundation,bespoke designs for the Deputy Prime Minister, book cover designs for BOSH and numerous private commissions.

We pour our hearts into every M&H design. Each illustration is born in our cosy Sheffield studio and brought to life with lively patterns and a burst of colour.
We spend hours on our product development, testing and sampling before we are completely happy with the final outcome and show you the final result!
We're all about supporting UK-made products and bringing British craftsmanship back into the homes of our stylish customers.

We have an odd little set up being a dual location business... 
Martha is up north in the steel city of Sheffield where she lives with her hubby Duncan, sons Ernest & Morris and her cat Tally. Martha also works as a freelance illustrator, find out more here.
Hepsie is based in the beautiful North Devon town of Barnstaple with her husband Roy, 2 children Trudie & Wilf and a ridiculous Wheaten Terrier called Terry! Hepsie also works as a marketing and business strategy consultant, find out more here.
Working from two different locations might seem a little unconventional but it works for us!
