About Us

After a decade of bland minimalism the brand captured the zeitgeist with its collections of British-made prints and products that are steeped in tradition but are bold and subversive for a truly modern statement.

Today, House of Hackney has evolved into a successful British-made brand incorporating interiors, fashion and lifestyle divisions. House of Hackney has achieved cult status amongst its loyal customer-base of tastemakers, celebrities and interior designers and has become the British go-to brand for its iconic printed collections.

With an aesthetic influenced by English heritage, albeit with a thoroughly modern interpretation, it was paramount to the founder’s vision that British-made materials and manufacturing would be used, keeping production close to home and supporting small traditional industries and creating local employment where the skills were available.

We offer in-house training and a young and dynamic office environment based in Shoreditch.
