About - Half-hearted Design

Why did the chicken cross the road...? 

I originally started my business, inspired by my mum making fabulous homeware and gifts. As time as gone on the business has changed and my love of my marvellous moggies Buster and Lucia meant I was making more and more pet accessories and so in April 2016 I took the plunge and decided to concentrate on making fantastic pet collars, bandanas and bowties and expanding my animal related gifts for you, or your animal loving friends, with great items every Crazy Cat Lady, Chicken Dad or Mad Dog Man should have. In 2021 six ex-battery hens were added to the team. They had a fab life even if three weeks to nearly two years and as I lost them I couldn't be without chickens again. The current flock are such characters and inspire the chicken range for sure! 
The cats and hens are the harshest critics and nothing gets put on sale unless they approve it...

I love seeing pictures of your Half-hearted Designs in their new home so feel free to send me any pictures or post them on the Half-hearted Design Facebook or Instagram pages @halfhearteddesign


Sadly after 19 and a half years we said goodbye to Lucia in October 2016. We will always miss her. She was awesome xx
