Hello and welcome to Clover and Lola.
Here is a little insight into my business and how it all began.
I have always been surrounded by creativity. Growing up I would fall asleep to the hum of a sewing machine with my mother a talented wedding dress designer. I guess my passion for creating comes from her.
Whilst designing my little bub’s nursery I fell in love with modern quilts and decided I wanted a quilted activity mat for her. After spending hours searching amongst the thin primary coloured mats I soon realised that I couldn’t find what I had in mind, so I made my own. I wanted her mat to be a comfy place for her to spend hours of floor time on and for it to look good in our home and her nursery. Friends also liked her mat and wanted one for their own little ones and so Clover and Lola was created. Named after my two fur babies; two West Highland White Terriers, Clover and Lola.
Along with the activity mats I also found a passion for creating dolls. During my first few months of motherhood, in a sleep deprived haze, I created a doll for my little girl. One that she would keep and enjoy for years to come. I designed a doll that emulated her features and in particular my favourite chubby cheeks and little neck. I love creating these little dolls and seeing the joy they bring to little ones.
All of my products are meticulously designed and handmade in my home studio.
