Caz Taylor – Owner, Founder & Curator of Taylor'd Bundles
Taylor'd Bundles is an award winning gifting service that was born from my experience of welcoming our first baby into the world back in 2011. My experiences throughout my journey through motherhood (the light and shade) have helped inspire the approach and thinking behind each and every one of the gifts that make up our unique gifting service. So, whether you're celebrating the safe arrival of a new baby, showing your love for a cherished mum or for the times when you havent the words but want to send a gift to show you care, it's my hope that Taylor'd Bundles has a gift that hits the spot.
Bex Harman – Creative Director and Illustrator
Not only does Bex direct and manage the Taylor'd Bundles brand, she is an incredibly talented illustrator that works on exclusive creations for our bundles.
Bex studied Foundation Art at Chelsea College of Arts, before embarking on an illustration degree at the University of the West of England and now works as a Senior Designer at a well-established marketing agency.
Bex's precise and detailed illustrations are a joy to see. She regularly heads off to galleries to get inspiration for her work and has a variety of styles to cater for all tastes.
Amy Hunt - Product Director, owner and maker 'Willa and Bobbin'
Amy works tirelessly to uncover new brands to bring on board the business alongside running her wonderful design led business; Willa and Bobbin. Willa and Bobbin is a handmade, design-led soft furnishing boutique for babies' and children's rooms. Founded by the lovely Amy in 2015, she designs and makes a range of beautiful accessories. The eye-catching Liberty of London cloud wall hangings and play-mats are part of our Taylor’d Bundles.
It wasn't until Amy was pregnant with her first baby (the real life Willa) that she learnt to sew and found her passion. She spent over 12 months perfecting her style and skill and now Amy has a thriving business selling her creations around the world.
Under the watchful eye of three year old creative director Willa, Amy has gone on to develop the brand and increased her repertoire to include mobiles and banners. We are also very excited to announce that Amy is now the Product Manager for Taylor'd Bundles too, helping to source and develop new ideas for our ever-growing mum and baby collection.
Stacey Trimby – Owner and maker 'Maisy Daisy Crafts'
In 2013, a year after Maisy Daisy Crafts was founded, Caz ordered a couple of blankets for her daughter. As soon as she saw them, Caz knew that she had to have Stacey as one of the Taylor'd Bundles designers. Stacey's eye for detail and ability to mix beautiful fabrics and patterns, is clear for all to see.
Stacey advises a truly grateful Caz on a lot of the textile side of the business - there is genuinely very little about fabrics, sewing and textiles that the lovely Stacey doesn't know!
When Stacey is not at work or at craft fairs, she spends her time making cushions, blankets, bunting and other beautiful items for her wonderful online shops. She also creates wonderful full-size quilts using Liberty of London and vintage fabrics, hundreds of which have been ordered from around the world.
Claire North – Owner & Founder 'The Dinky Dove'
In 2013, Claire turned her love of card making and shopping into her full-time business. Claire hand-makes cards for Taylor’d Bundles as well as advising on the direction of the business.
Claire is also the proud owner of a wonderful gift shop, The Dinky Dove, that stocks beautiful cards (including her own handmade range) and a large selection of gifts for him, her and the home. Her shop is an absolute delight, has been nominated for retail awards and been featured on television too!
If you are ever in the Surrey area, do head down to see her shop - it's definitely worth a visit and you are guaranteed a great cup of tea too!
Stephanie Hosmer – Founder, maker and illustrator 'Miss Papercut'
Steph’s creative genius was inspired from the papercuts and papercut grafitti that she was introduced to on a trip to Malaysia back in 2013. When she flew home she picked up a scalpel for the first time and taught herself, through trial and error, how to papercut.
Most of her inspiration comes from her surroundings, be it from the coastal walks she takes in Devon or her home town in Kent.
Steph has been featured in a range of well-known publications and has taken part in a creative showcase at the famous Heal's store in London.
Sarah Burns – Founder and maker of 'Bunting by Boo' & 'Little Additions'
Sarah is the proud and enthusiastic owner of both Bunting By Boo & Little Additions- she designs and hand makes the bunting as well as our iconic Just because sweatshirts for Taylor'd Bundles. It's her precise eye for stylish detail that has made the items she creates for us so popular. Over the years, she has grown her offering by launching Little Additions which is a service that enables her to add additional detail to the things we love.
Victoria Fillingham - owner and maker 'Sew 1965'
In 2014 after 25 years spent as a legal secretary and bringing up two beautiful daughters, Vicky decided it was time to put her skill and love of sewing to good use and started her own handmade business, Sew 1965.
Vicky taught herself to sew and spent many years practising various techniques with her mum and gran; making clothing and patchwork quilts (one of which has kept growing in size!). Her love of sewing pretty items has made her the accomplished seamstress she is today.
Vicky creates beautiful pinafore dresses for lucky girls aged newborn to 5 years old and many star in the Taylor'd Bundles collection of New Baby bundles.
Jill Silk - Founder and maker 'Pearl Button'
Jill is a receptionist by day and a self-taught sewing enthusiast by night, a mum to two grown-up children and is about to become a grandparent for the first time!
In 2015, Jill wanted to give her pregnant niece a unique present. Her penchant for sewing and purchasing delightful fabric meant a stunning bundle of bibs, burp cloths and dribble bandanas were soon created, which her niece, friends and friends of friends loved. From that point on she spent her evenings sewing and Pearl Button was born.
Jill’s attention to detail and keen eye for fabulous fabrics has earnt her multiple requests to sell her wonderful creations at craft fairs and mother and baby shows far and wide.
Pat Davies - Co owner and maker 'Dapple and Dandelion'
Dapple & Dandelion are a mother and daughter team who spent years making crafts for friends and family.
They decided to make their dream a reality and started up their company creating a beautiful range of children's clothing and accessories and bespoke bunting for all occasions. Dapple and Dandelion are stocked in a large range of shops and they make beautiful creations that are sent world-wide.
Pat is a proficient seamstress (dubbed ‘The Wise Woman’ by her grandchildren) and is bursting with ideas and talent. She used to make nightshirts from home for Laura Ashley when her daughter Sharon was very young - what a wonderful start to her sewing career!
Judy Gush - Co owner and maker 'Made By Nanny'
Judy is the Nanny of the 'Made by Nanny' team. Knitting and sewing have always been a passion of hers, but even more so when her two little granddaughters came along in 2014. With the help of her daughter, they decided to launch their wonderful handmade business.
Judy beautifully knits and sews baby items including pure wool baby blankets, new born sets and fun teepees and we are excited to include these in our New Baby and Sibling bundles.
Judy is the one and only knitter in the Taylor'd Bundles family and we love the fact she brings her knitting needles whenever, and to wherever, we catch up - chatting and knitting over a cup of tea or glass or vino!
Sharon Lowe - co owner and maker 'Dapple and Dandelion'
Dapple & Dandelion are a mother and daughter team who spent years making crafts for friends and family.
They decided to make their dream a reality and started up their company creating a beautiful range of children's clothing and accessories and bespoke bunting for all occasions. Dapple and Dandelion are stocked in a large range of shops and they make beautiful creations that are sent world-wide
We all giggled when we heard that Sharon wasn't taught to sew by her mum, but instead was inspired by magazines and craft fairs. Sharon is a mum to three wonderful children and when she's not looking after them, or organising numerous orders, she has made time to undertake a design course to enable her to design her very own bespoke patterns.
Dotty Boulton - owner of 'Stanley and Maud'
After years of Dotty pestering her husband every Christmas and birthday for silver jewellery, he eventually said the words we all dread... "You have enough!" Obviously, there’s no such thing as too much jewellery, so she decided to learn how to make it herself.
She wanted her designs to reflect her style and to include the idea of keeping precious memories close to the wearer. She found time during her maternity leave to design more pieces and plucked up the courage to sell some to the public, opened an Etsy store and now has a stunning collection of silver and aluminium jewellery which has been featured in publications such as Tatler and Glamour to name but a few.
Dotty sends out hundreds of orders each month around the world, has attracted thousands of followers to her inspiring Instagram account and has been a popular choice for journalists and bloggers
Rosie Morley - Founder of 'Fabrose'
Rosie runs her wonderful design business 'Fabrose' from her garden studio, all her one-off designs are hand-drawn and painted using watercolour and pen and ink. We are very fortunate to have a range of designs that have been created exclusively for Taylor'd Bundles.
Rosie grew up in Stoke on Trent and later attended University of East London where she received a BA in Textile Design. After the birth of her lovely son Tom, Rosie decided a change of pace was needed and left behind a fast-paced career in fashion and got back to her creative roots.
Fabrose began with a doodle of a stag and the rest, as they say, is history. When she’s not in her studio, Rosie can be found spending time with her family or hunting down vintage finds.
Amanda Gush - co owner of 'Made By Nanny'
Amanda is the daughter of the Made By Nanny team and provides support to her mother Judy's crafting talents. Amanda has always had a keen interest in Art & Design and has followed this through from her BA Degree in Fashion into her career in Fashion Retail and Visual Merchandising.
After her daughter was born, Amanda decided that her mum's beautiful creations needed to be shared for all to see and love, so worked to launch Made By Nanny. She provides a huge amount of support to her mum creatively, created and manages the website, runs the social media and does the stunning photography styling.
Lizzie Lunn – owner & designer - 'Mini Lunn' & 'Lunn Antiques'
As a little girl, Lizzie grew up surrounded by beautiful antiques in her parents’ shop and it became a life-long dream to design children's clothing with a classic vintage feel.
With these nostalgic memories as inspiration and the arrival of her children, Molly and Tommy, she started to design traditional nightwear for boys and girls, with fun embroidery. More recently, Lizzie has added children’s vintage-styled dresses and adult nightwear to her collection, which are included across a range of our bundles.
Lizzie (who is an old friend of Caz's) has grown the business into a global supplier of vintage nightwear to many well-known stockists. We couldn't be more proud of what she's achieved and of the fact that she agreed to work alongside Taylor'd Bundles.
Vicki Hodges, Founder of 'Bo&Bel'
Vicki is the proud founder of Bo&Bel, a contempory teething range that launched online in October 2014 and which is now available in leading retailers throughout the UK.
When Vicki had babies and they put everything in their mouths and pulled and broke her necklaces, she gave up on wearing jewellery and felt she’d lost her sense of style. She realised that many new mums were going through the same experience, so she went about designing her own perfect solution and Bo&Bel was born.
Bo&Bel’s necklaces stand out from the crowd because they’re designed to be an accessory that is as much about baby teething as it is about the mum feeling stylish.
Jessie Moane, Founder of 'Jessie M Design'
At the start of 2016, Jessie began her small business journey. Based in East Sussex she creates hand-lettered prints and greeting cards.
A magazine designer by day, Jessie spends her evenings experimenting with techniques for new designs.
She creates exclusively designed cards for the lovely bundles at Taylor’d Bundles and we couldn't be more pleased.
Fiona Burrage, Co owner and Creative Director of 'Nor-Folk'
Nor-Folk is a graphic design-led lifestyle brand founded by graphic designers Fiona and her husband, who reside in Norfolk. Together they design and curate apparel and products for the whole family with a timeless minimalist design aesthetic.

Cath Court and Kirsty McCandless, Co Founders of 'Jack and Jillaroo'
Kick-started by two friends, Cath and Kirsty, the duo are mums with a creative streak.
With their children as inspiration, Jack & Jillaroo hand-make their dribble bibs. Since their launch, they have created a striking collection that includes beautiful baby blankets which we are excited to stock.
Available across Northern Ireland, Ireland, England and Europe, Jack and Jillaroo’s range of gorgeous children’s products make the most perfect practical gift and we couldn’t be happier to have them on board!
Hattie Goodley - Founder of 'Willa and the bear'
Willa and the Bear is a small, well thought out collection of ethically sourced mix and match nursery bedding, accessories and original nightwear for babies and children up to 3 years old. Their collection focuses on traditional values of quality and style whilst striving to produce beautiful, practical additions to modern day nurseries and children’s rooms.
Using a variety of hand blocked, hand stitched and hand printed fabrics in a range of gentle, easy-to-live-with patterns, their soft colour palate is infused with a contemporary touch using satin trims, embroidery and ribbons in a rainbow of sunny hues and fluoros.
We are very excited to now be stocking their beautifully designed satin trimmed muslins.
Liz Cadman, Founder and graphic designer 'Essex Mama'
Liz couldn’t find a t-shirt with the specific slogan ‘Girl Gang’. So, as you do, she made one her very self. Liz continued to play and evolve designs and because of the gap in the market and the brilliant feedback she was getting; Essex Mama was born.
Now, the ‘Girl Gang’ tees are what Essex Mama is known for, Liz is continuing to promote all that they stand for; unity, togetherness & positive vibes, no matter who you are, how old you are or where you are from. Everyone is welcome here, which is why we absolutely had to have Liz join our team.
The collection has now expanded into other uplifting or uniting slogan t-shirts, sweatshirts & baby vests, and we are so excited to announce that the designs from Essex Mama are exclusive to our Taylor’d Bundles range.
Yolyn Brooks - Founder 'Frizz & Freckles'
Frizz & Freckles is an online gift boutique for babies and little ones that started out at Yolyn's dining table in 2016.
Yolyn realised that returning to her fashion buying career after maternity leave would not offer her the work-life balance that she needed, so she took the plunge to go it alone and set up her own gift shop. With a love of crafting and creating really special gifts, Yolyn’s hand made items are by far the best selling of all of her products.
Along side her business, Yolyn is a huge Instagram lover, using it to promote her business as well as account her life with her little one Stanley.

Taylor'd Bundles supports Sands
Sadly, 25% of all pregnancies result in miscarriage or still birth. For others who carry a baby full term, in the UK alone, 15 births result in a baby dying during or soon after birth every single day.
Sands is a charity that is very close to the heart of the owner of Taylor'd Bundles. Sands operates throughout the UK with a core purpose of supporting anyone affected by the death of a baby; working in partnership with health professionals to ensure bereaved parents and families receive the best possible care; and to promote improvements in practice fund research that could help to reduce the loss of babies' lives.
We plan to support Sands through various fundraising initiatives during 2017 and if you would like to donate and show your support, please visit the Sands website www.uk-sands.org.uk
Karenmary Blight; jewellery designer and maker
Karenmary has always been creative and could be described as a 'little magpie' collecting tiny delicate or forgotten objet d'art. With her passion in jewellery making she quickly linked the two together. Her fondness continued with her love of history and nature, which helped her to continue to expand new ideas.
Karenmary works from her studio in the borough of Richmond, London. Using her art and design skills along with traditional jewellery techniques, her favorites include sand casting and tube setting gem stones - we are fortunate to be using her skills in silver casting the beautiful products of which can be found in our new mum and Just because collection.
Karenmary brings to the team years of jewellery designing experience and has had her work feature in national press such as Brides which simply reflects how stunning and popular her designs have become over the years.
