Hettie is a luxury British lifestyle brand with family at their core. Sustainability and ethical responsibility, hand craftsmanship, quality local materials, beautiful design and a passion for traditional British fabrics are all values running throughout their collections.
Hettie is the watchword for handmade British lifestyle products, ranging from luxury wool tote bags, ladies shoulder bags, scarves, home accessories including blankets and cushions, children’s accessories to a whole range of accessories for dogs.
Every purchase from Hettie is hand built with care to last and represents a piece of British heritage to be used and treasured. If looking for a British made gift you will be spoilt for choice.
Hettie is a family brand and Sian Hettie’s designs are inspired by the love she has for her own steadily growing family. The seeds of the idea for the Hettie venture were born out of a discussion, held around the table, during a family barbecue. Being in Warwickshire, surrounded by countryside, picturesque villages and with beautiful walks and the river on their doorstep, the aim was for a country inspired, lifestyle collection of accessories, showcasing the colours of nature.
These ideas are bought to life in the Woodside, Riverside and Spa collections. Woodside and Riverside enable you to bring the outside in, mixing and matching pattern and texture, combined with the beautiful colour palette within the 100% pure new wool. The Spa Collection is inspired by the villages in the Cotswolds, the architecture and colours radiating within the stones. The colour palette is soothing with the focus on encouraging a calm, everyday family life.
But perhaps one of Hettie’s best known ranges is their Pet Collection, featuring accessories such as handmade dog collars and leads for your four legged friends. Indeed, one of the nation’s best known dogs – Dilyn Johnson, the PM’s rescue Jack Russell cross – has been seen wearing Hettie gear!
One of Hettie’s rather unique aspects to their range is the complimentary looks. Whether it be handbags for mother and daughter or perhaps co-ordinating items for the family dog. These include handmade dog leads and collars, harnesses, dog coats, bandanas and bow ties. You can even coordinate dog and owner’s accessories for a fashionable walk in the park!
Part of the brand ethos is to step away from fast fashion and concentrate on quality over quantity. Collections are run in small batches ensuring authenticity and value for each piece. Due to this lines can sell out quickly and are not always repeated. However, new items are always being added as well reflecting the changes in the seasons. So if you are searching for a special British made gift for a special person, our advice would be ‘strike while the iron is hot’.
