How it all Began
Humphries and Begg was started in 2010 by wife and husband duo Alice Begg and Robbie Humphries just three months after meeting. Their names together Humphries and Begg had a certain ring to it, like it had been around forever. That was the easy bit. For 7 years it was very much a side project, but in 2017 Humphries and Begg relaunched as it is today.
The First Collection and Launch of the Pre-Order
In Winter 2016 Alice planned a three month trip to Australia. Before she went, she sent some new designs to Abhay her production manager in Jaipur and had the samples sent to meet her in Australia. This was where she did her first photoshoot, shot and styled by herself in her cousin's house. She put an email together sitting in the public library in Brisbane, using their wifi and launched their first pre-order!
Every year Humphries and Begg trade at Wilderness festival in Oxfordshire, it has been a place to try out new items with a crowd that loves the printed world of H&B, they will be back there this August and Womad festival to!
Stroud and London
After running the business from London for the first 7 years, in 2019 they decided to move to the Stroud in Gloucestershire, start a family and set up shop in the midst of a pandemic. You can find their shop at 11 Lansdown Stroud. They still have roots in London - where they trade at Broadway Market in Hackney. This is still on going every Saturday.
Homewares and Kids Launch
Having started predominately with their printed clothing, translating the fun and joyful style that they are known for into the home felt like a natural progression, particularly during lockdown. Inspired by their daughter Honey, in 2021 they launched their first kids collection
