About Us

Welcome to Lily & Giraffe, the home of gorgeous handmade children's clothing in fun and striking fabrics.

Everything at Lily & Giraffe is handmade with love and care by me, Helen. I am a mum of two lovely girls and a secret fabric addict!


I have a degree in Molecular Plant Biology and have worked as a Microbiologist for nearly ten years. I have always loved anything crafty and started my sewing journey making clothing for my girls. After the maternity leave for my youngest ended, I decided to take the plunge and Lily & Giraffe was born! Lily and Giraffe began trading in Spring 2014 and we are now nearly four years old!

I like to make clothing that can not be found on the highstreet, something fun, quirky and wearable. All the handmade clothing in my shop is made to order, so there will be a small wait on your clothing, but I will always try and get it to you as soon as possible.

As well as ordering via this website, Etsy shop and Facebook page, my clothing can be found at Locally Produced for You in West Bridgford, Nottingham. We also online at Notonthehighstreet.com.
