Coronavirus: Thank you for your continued support in these difficult times. Since our office and factory are in a rural area, our staff travel to work individually by car and we have enough space to maintain social distancing, so in consultation with our staff, we have decided to remain open for business unless government policy changes.
We are still able to despatch most of our products, however, the ones listed below (that are made by other manufacturers) will not be available for a while.

Tableware (Coasters & Placemats) and Wallpaper.

Our despatch times are normal, but Royal Mail & Parcelforce delivery times are varying depending on location - some parcels arrive next day and others are taking up to 10 days, which we have no control over.

We will update this message as anything changes.

Our First Home - a Memory of Wooburn Green.

My husband and I have many fond memories of Wooburn Green. We bought our first home, Millstream House, on Glory Mill Lane, right opposite the Wiggins Teape paper mill. Our first child, Clare, was also born in Buckinghamshire at Burnham Beeches. We only stayed 2 years but got to know our neighbour, Lucy, really well. She used to tell us all about her working days at the mill. I enjoyed exploring the area and pushing Clare around in her pram.
We left Wooburn Green in 1975 and have lived in the United States ever since, first in Cleveland, Ohio, and now in Lexington, Kentucky.
