ABOUT MOLLY MAHON
We believe that every home should be a colourful reflection of its inhabitants.
Molly Mahon is a British company that designs, creates and offers beautiful, and original fabrics, wallpapers and functional art pieces for the home.
Mollys designs are inspired by her surroundings, both at home in Sussex and on her travels in India where she works with artisan craftspeople. With her love of the English home always in her mind she creates pieces to enhance our homes and make people smile.
OUR DESIGN PRINCIPLES
Our house is perfectly imperfect and we wouldn't want it any other way. With children, dogs, various pets and gatherings with friends we want to create a warm, welcoming atmosphere. We find the hand block printed mark and all its irregularities are a reflection of this lifestyle and fit right in to the way we want to live.
CHOOSE FROM THE HEART
We believe in creating homes, not showrooms and we cherish our creative freedom rather than follow fashion and market demands.
ADD A BIT OF COLOUR
You don't have to wallpaper your entire house (although it is pretty amazing when you do) but just add a little colour, it really is most cheering.
MADE WITH PASSION
We are passionate about making a home a beautiful, colourful, joyful space that will stand the test of time, the feet of children and the paws of animals. With that comes passion in all areas that we work in.
MEET OUR DESIGNER
There is something special about block printing that has stood the test of time. To me it brings the fabric alive and this is exactly what it does to our homes.
Based in Sussex, I am a British printmaker whose block print originals are applied to fabrics, wallpapers and a growing range of homewares or as we like to call it, functional arts so much goes in to everything we make. Inspired by nature, my travels to India and things that I notice in my daily life, I turn my images into repeat designs and carve them into a block (or sometimes I now get carved into wood while in India).
I never tire of lifting the block and seeing the impression that has been left, what I call the 'perfect imperfection'.
Molly can often be found in her garden shed at her print table while nearby her three children and one small dog play or come and print too.
MEET OUR ARTISANS - INDIA
I feel honoured to have met some wonderful people on my trips to India and now have two wonderful relationships with two businesses there. They dont just print for us, they mentor me and educate me about the history of block printing and its colourful past. Block printing is the most wonderful form of creativity as well as a way to make beautiful and practical items for the home. I am blown away by their talent and will strive to do my best to keep this craft alive and viable.
We only use water based products and if at all possible natural dyes. Some of the base cloths are certified organic. We pay above the average price as we feel we are paying what its worth. In Bagru 5% of profits are put in to the community health care system.
MEET OUR ARTISANS - UK
We are proud to work with a growing number of British boutique producers. The relationship we have with our makers is hugely important to us and we are very selective about this. The common thread running throughout is quality, passion and craftsmanship.
We love working with local artisans from seamstresses to soap makers, all of whom add such invaluble care and attention to detail and help grow and develop our homeware collection.
