Lucy Mason is one of the ever-growing band of mums who, when they find things aren’t quite the way they want them, set up a business to rectify that. The ‘about’ page of Lemon-Pink puts it thus:
When I became a mum I found it impossible to find fresh bright colours without cartoon characters, so I started making them myself for my children. I want to create something beautiful, fun and special – to add colour to the nursery and not just in pink and blue.
I can certainly identify with that – and although the high street stores have caught up with design trends a lot more in recent years, how much nicer it is to support a cottage industry. Mason’s products are made with charity shop fabric finds and she’s striving for her business to be as environmentally-friendly as possible.
Lemon-Pink are offering pram blankets, cot blankets, and cot quilts, at Â£29.99, Â£39.99 and Â£49.99 respectively, plus Â£3.95 p&p.
