Meet Our Makers: Elsie and Nell

Elsie and Nell is a fabulously positive, cheery company full of beautiful products featuring fantastic slogans. Started by Laura in 2014, Elsie and Nell is based in Sheffield (just like BearHugs!).

Laura began by printing slogans onto tote bags for herself and her family, and they proved so popular that people started asking her where they could buy them. From that, Elsie and Nell was born, and now Laura makes a huge range of ethically produced, lovely items including her tote bags, coin purses, make-up pouches, stationery and decorative items.

Elsie and Nell’s products are based around adding a little positivity to every day, but we love how stylish they all look too! Some BearHugs favourites from Elsie and Nell include the ‘Kind People Are My Kind of People’ decorative banner, which is a great way to add an uplifting motto to your room, and the ‘You Can Do It (I Believe in you)’ pencil / cosmetics case - a wonderfully encouraging statement printed on funky and practical case. A varied range of brilliant products from Elsie and Nell are available to Build Your Own BearHug of kindness and positivity!

Laura says the thing that uplifts her the most is:

reading a really good book and getting lost in the story. If I can sit and read outside on a warm day, then even better!

We love Laura’s boundless cheer and positivity, especially when it results in such lovely items for your BearHugs!
