Marvling Bros

In A Matchbox
About Marvling Bros.-
In 2010 a school competition was held 'HOW MUCH CAN YOU FIT IN A MATCHBOX'. Hayley’s son was not enthused by idea, but Hayley entered for him and came up with all sorts of objects that not only fitted in the matchbox, but fulfilled a concept too, for example a grain of rice and a coriander seed which she labelled ‘curry takeaway’ and a picture of the Mona Lisa and Van Gogh’s Sunflowers- ‘an art gallery’. She did not win the competition, and most people thought it was mad, but one other person at the school totally got it - Emma.

Three years later, Emma, inspired by the matchboxes, thought the concept could be the basis for a business and for nine months she and Hayley beavered away researching products, developing ideas and learning how to run an ecommerce company. They launched in July 2013 with a fantastic website and over 6,000 products.
