ABOUT THE BRAND: 

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 2013 and haven't looked back since, selling hundreds of thousands all around the world.
