– BEING MERRI AND MAKING –
“WE DRAW FROM PLAYFUL IDEAS WHEN WE CREATE PIECES, AND BECAUSE WE LIKE
OUR WORK TO BE FUN, WE WORK HARD BUT TRY NOT TO TAKE THINGS TOO SERIOUSLY.
WE THINK OUR DESIGNS REFLECT THAT.”
Founded as a means to fund fun, Merrimaking launched in 2009 and unknowingly fore-fronted a distinctive fashion trend –
The Animal Hood. The hoods quickly became a full time job and have since paved the way for founders Meg and Harri to
create an entire wardrobe of designs, including clothing and accessories. All inspired by playful ideas, and often
designed whilst day-dreaming.
Now, Merrimaking is run by a small team, including Meg, who also makes illuminated artworks and bespoke signage
Harri creates our Bumbags, as well as 6-week cycles between London and Athens, raising money for refugees in Greece
Merrimaking has been worn by artists including Ellie Goulding, Rizzle Kicks and Zoe Ball, has flooded the fields
at summer festivals and been featured on TV and in high-street magazines fashion magazines including
Vogue and Grazia.
