'About Us' is a bit of a lie.. its just me!
My names Kelly, I'm 27 and live and operate my little business from my flat in Hackney, East London.

I learnt to crochet during those odd few days between Christmas and New Year of 2019, and have crocheted almost everyday ever since.

As a day job I work as a freelancer painting sets for theaters in the West End, although I'd always had ideas about someday opening a small shop to sell the crafts I make in my spare time.

In March of 2020 when the world ground to a halt and I had no work, I found myself fully immersed in a hobby that was already getting out of hand! 

I started writing patterns and making prototypes, and before I knew it Hook + Badger was born...


Each and every Hook + Badger product is designed and made solely by me.

My aim is to create fun, gender neutral products that will look amazing in, and bring joy to any home.

I try to be conscious of our planet and the environment when selecting materials, and am proud that the packaging and stuffing used by Hook + Badger are made from 100% recycled materials.

Where possible I always strive to use naturally derived materials.
