How we began

Heather Moore’s simple, clean pattern designs and unusual colour palette are inspired by everyday things, her love of midcentury style and a dose of African chic.

In 2007 she started screenprinting her patterns onto fabric, just for fun. Next thing, her hobby had become a business called Skinny laMinx, and the things she’d designed could be found in stores & homes around the globe. But of course, there’s a bit more to the story than that.

Our studio

The Skinny laMinx design and production studio is where we come up with all our patterns and designs.

It’s also where we cut an stitch our textiles into beautiful homeware, before sending them all around the world.

The ethics of style

Our business has grown and changed, but our values are the same as ever.  In fact, we think our growth has a lot to do with caring about excellence, generosity, creativity and fun, while doing our best to treat people and the planet right.

Thank you for your fabulous customer service!
