The Harriet Hare Story
Behind the scenes you'll find me, Hayley, I'm the founder of Harriet Hare. It's an online store for souls who value exceptional quality, timeless design and beautifully made products with bed linens, cushions, storage and accessories for the home.
Harriet Hare was founded when my twins were small. I wanted to create a harmonious tranquil bedroom for them to share, but I couldn't find simple, timeless pieces so I set to creating what I dreamt of and launched the business.
Looking back it was the perfect excuse to leap into interiors, it's been my happy space since before I can remember, creating a feeling of peace and balance in a room. I was that chid that loved nothing more than changing her bedroom about on a whim.
Then my career before motherhood took me around the globe and I found myself drawn to the highest quality treasures, often too good to resist squeezing into my suitcase. I learnt about quality not quantity to create a home, these are guiding principles for me at Harriet Hare.
I'm proud to work with truly inspiring textile makers who create our bed linen and cushion collections. Good fortune lead me to António, his wife Maria and Isabel who are based near the beautiful historic city of Guimarães in Northern Portugal - it's a centre of excellence within the textile industry. Our products are made using only the finest cotton yarns our suppliers use a magical combination of tradition, innovation and commitment. Their ethical principles shine through from the sourcing of the natural fibres, minimising the carbon footprint and creating a fair, happy work place.
Closer to home I work with family run companies who share my passion for the highest quality craftsmanship to supply the rest of the Harriet Hare accessories. All of our collections are due to grow in the coming months, I can't wait to share them with you.
