Meet the Maker
Welcome to House of Margaux, an independent baby and children's fashion brand designed and ethically produced in the UK. Every item of clothing within our collections is hand cut, hand sewn and delivered from (our home) Cornwall, UK.
When I was on maternity leave with our daughter, I wanted to make some clothes for her, I borrowed a sewing machine from a friend and my passion for making her clothing ignited, I carried on learning and making new clothing when I returned to my 'full time job' after maternity leave, dreaming about how i could make this my 'full time job'.
It wasn't until the pandemic that my brand was really born, before House of Margaux I would day dream about all the things i'd love to do if i had the time. Something i could pour my creativity into that revolved around my family, then overnight, time was something i had plenty of..
I was furloughed, ordered lots of fabric and spent every available minute when i wasn't with my daughter and husband working on patterns and designs, ordering so much of the wrong fabric before i found the right quality and sewing! This love and passion, something I've never experienced in a "normal job" suddenly had an opportunity to grow. I sent my friends clothes, dressed Darcy, took photos and was encouraged to set up an instagram account, followed shortly after by a website.
I haven't looked back. One overlocker, a new sewing machine and 50+ metres of fabric a month in sales, I've moved from our dining room table into our spare bedroom and left my job, to work full time on House of Margaux.
A lot of time is spent choosing the fabrics and prints that we love and hope you will love too. Quality is very important to me, clothing which can be worn by baby and toddlers, making our clothing perfect for handing down and reusing amongst family and friends again and again.
Please feel free to ask any questions and for our latest designs, special offers and competitions please subscribe on the website and follow us on Instagram @houseofmargaux.
None of this would be possible without the help and support of my husband Ben, every late night he's with me helping me cut fabric out, ironing and packing orders and generally being my biggest cheerleader!
Please tag your little ones, we love to see them rocking our clothing!
Love Cassie xx
