Wickle was founded in April 2004 by Elisabeth and Scott.
We were dreaming of starting our own company that would use our combined skills in design, craft, retail, product development and branding together with our appreciation for the unusual and creative. With a strong desire to offer products that were made locally or that was ethically produced, our first collection was a mix of perfumes, toiletries, Mini Mickle Kits, greeting cards, antiques and textiles, all made or personally sourced by the two of us.
Very quickly we found ourselves stocked in Anthropoligie, Whistles and Henry Bendel as well as a broad range of boutiques across the world. Both our perfumes and Mini Mickle Kits were greeted with open arms by the world press, and our online shop was established.
The perfect shop location came up when we relocated from London to Lewes and the dream of creating a mini department store became reality.
Since 2006 we have been selling an eclectic mix of all the things we love in the town we love as well as online. We work hard to put together a collection of homeware, clothing, toys, gifts, accessories and everyday useful items for the whole family sourced from companies that share our vison of always being fair and ethical.
Our style mixes our love for vintage and classic design with a clear influence of Elisabeth's Norwegian heritage. A love for textiles, wood craft and ceramics are part of our family roots. A beautiful, thoughtfully crafted home has been part of both our upbringing and we hope what you buy from Wickle will become part of your home for many years to come.
