Our Story

"Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful"

-  William Morris

Here at Also the Bison we think William Morris was right about a lot of things. That’s why when London-based designer, Maddie Chambers, founded Also the Bison in 2015 she knew she had to make sure that we started off by getting our principles straight. These are the four rules we live by:

  • Design - Bright, bold and unique.Maddie hand paints all of our whimsical designs with watercolour which gives each piece an artisan quality that cannot be replicated by digital colouring.

  • Sustainability - we aim to have as little environmental impact with our products as possible. We use the finest natural materials, staying away from harmful plastic fibres. And we make sure that all our packaging can be recycled.

  • Ethical Production - we support modern craftspeople. We work with other small businesses in the UK to produce our collections so we can be sure that our production is ethical.

  • Practicality - we ensure that our products are not only beautiful, but also useful and can be treasured for years to come.

No bisons are ever harmed in the making of our products!
