The Harriet Hare Story
A word or two from Hayley, our founder...
“From as early as I can remember, I’ve been an interiors addict and a perfectionist with a keen eye for detail. When I became a mum to twins, these traits were magnified as I struggled to find high quality children’s bedding which worked in a shared room, which also satisfied my own need to create an aesthetically pleasing space. My hunt for those special pieces for the children’s bedroom continued; I had such a clear idea as to what I wanted to find, but the reality always stopped just short of what I had specifically visualised in my head.
I began a three-year journey to bring my vision to life, taking inspiration from nature and our travels as a family. I wanted to create interiors rich in simplicity and quality which were an extension of a home’s overall style, equally suited to a child or adult’s bedroom.
Many late nights and dozens of samples later, I was finally ready to launch Harriet Hare in early 2014. Our first collection of exclusive children’s bed linen included cot bed, single and double duvet sizes, showcasing our trademark hare and ticking stripe designs in dusty pink and blue-grey.
As the interest in Harriet Hare grew, we introduced table lamps and cushions to compliment the soft tones of our linen and offer a more complete scheme for our clients’ bedrooms. Our designs were now being shipped worldwide and were purchased just as often for adult bedrooms as for their children’s.
Our product range continued to grow and since then, we’ve expanded our first textile range to include beautiful storage solutions and accessories which are designed to surpass the tides of current trends, whether you’re young or just young at heart.”
Our suppliers are an intrinsic part of the Harriet Hare family, each embracing our passion for creating timeless pieces of the highest quality. Our bed linen is woven from 100% Egyptian yarn dyed cotton, on a Jacquard or dobby loom, by a family-run company in Portugal with four generations of experience in the textile industry. All our other partners are based in the UK
