Who is Ivie London? 

Ivie London is a homeware brand, started up by two sisters with a love for all things creative. We are the makers of handmade home decor items.

What inspired you to became a maker and please explain the process?

We both work in creative industries, so it was a natural transition to start a business in the field. 

Our products are carefully hand crafted from beautifully marbled concrete. As are our candles, all hand poured and made from natural Soy wax. Each item is unique and has its own design.

 

What is it like owning your own business or like many, juggling multiple jobs?

It is busy! No two days are the same which is exciting, however downtime is a rarity. Also one of us is a mother of two under 5, so that is tough. But working on something that is your own is worth the reward.

Thank you, Ivie London. Before you leave us, can you impart a quote, or words of wisdom to inspire?

Your gut feeling is something you should never ignore- if you feel strongly for a product or idea, run with it. It could be the best decision you ever made!
