Welcome to Home Truths – here’s how it started. One of my jobs is to interview women about their lives and read books by amazing feminist thinkers. I do this alongside raising my own family and waging an endless war on housework. One day a line from Betty Friedan’s The Feminine Mystique jumped off the page .
“Housewifery expands to fill the space available”
I realised I needed Betty by my side – not just on my bookshelf. What if those inspirational words were on the things I use everyday? Giving me space to think. Not telling me what to think. No one needs shouty tea towels. So I designed a range of subtly surprising products which are ethically produced, look great and work beautifully.
