The inspiration for the business comes from the combination of family life experiences with our three children and a love of design, illustration and interior decoration. It started as a way of creating the thing that we wanted for our home.
All of our products are imagined and designed by Julie in her studio in Amsterdam. Her background is a mix of Visual Art (which she studied in Paris) and Theatre Stage Design (which she studied at Central Saint Martins in London). It yields a balance of both artisanal skills and an understanding of a dramatic backdrop.
Famille Summerbelle is a global brand, but we are still very much a family business. We care about who makes our products and where they are made. We are also keen that we do not contribute to the world's excessive waste. Our aim is to continue to grow in a sustainable way.
