Illustrated, handmade & vintage decor for you and your little ones. Inspired by the real Hesper Roo & our eclectic home.
The story of Hesperoo...
Hesperoo first began when my daughter, Hesper was born and I wanted to develop a more creative way of living. I taught myself to screen print and printed baby clothes, as well as making clothes and toys for Hesper, before returning to my day job after maternity leave. A couple of years later I was able to leave that job and spend more time with my daughter and be creative again. I continued to screen print, making a range of cushions and lampshades which I sold online and locally. This soon expanded to include digitally printed textiles, vintage goods, cards, furniture and lots of other handmade products! Towards the end of 2015, I felt that Hesperoo needed more cohesion and I looked at why I started in the first place. It was my love of creating things for Hesper and her room.
I re-discovered sketchbook drawings and digital doodles of little characters inspired by Hesper and the names she creates when playing, such as my popular Brunta Bear design (although I have been told off for this one, as apparently 'Brunta' is a dog!). I developed these characters into designs for a kids decor range and re-launched in 2016 with a new focus.
Soon after re-launching, I was invited to join Not on the High Street as a seller and continue to sell this range online through Not on the High Street, Lobella Loves and MiniXplorers.
Now that Hesper is growing up and her tastes are changing, I want Hesperoo to reflect who we are as a family, our own home and style. Our home has always been a combination of handmade, vintage and modern pieces that are constantly being re-arranged and added to, creating a home that's very much our own space. Hesperoo now offers something for the whole family home, including my illustrated kids decor, handmade pieces and carefully selected vintage.
All handmade items are designed and made by me in my garden studio. My printed goods such as prints, cards and melamine ware are proudly printed/made in the UK.
