MY STORY

HUIS Homewares is a homesewn business, creating high-quality colourful homewares to brighten your home, and to help make your home a HUIS.

Inspired by the vibrant colours of the Tropics, my passion for sewing started when I enrolled on a sewing course in 2016. I discovered a love for the alchemy of turning a piece of flat fabric into a functional and beautiful 3D item. 

From those early sewing lessons, the idea of HUIS Homewares started to grow. "Huis" is a Dutch word meaning "house" or "home", and reflects my part-Dutch heritage. The orange of the logo is a national colour of Holland, and one of my favourites too. HUIS Homewares was established in 2018.

I am drawn to fun and playfully-patterned fabrics and love to turn them into gorgeous, brightly- coloured things for the home. I buy limited quantities of each fabric so each piece is one of only a limited number of the same.  Increasingly conscious of the environment, I am striving to move towards using only natural fabrics such as linen, as well as organic cottons along with deadstock fabrics that would otherwise end up in landfill. Everything is handmade by me, and I work on every piece with love. The end result is high-quality home accessories that can make your rooms "pop". My collection includes cushions, storage and seasonal accessories. 

Sewing brings me peace. I hope my pieces bring a smile to your home.
