Makers of the Eye Pillows
The eye pillows were designed by Mum and I. We both agreed that they needed to be a grounding colour that still felt special. When we received the sample of the cocoa brown organic velvet, we knew it would be perfect. Each eye pillow is filled with organic linseeds and organic dried lavender from a beautiful family run farm in Australia, plus a few drops of lavender essential oil.
The linseeds, dried lavender and essential oil were hand mixed in a big wooden bowl, before being poured individually into each eye pillow inner. Both the inner and the velvet cover were handmade by Mum (Tracy). The beautiful logo embroidery was done by a small business in Tasmania. Our intention is for each person who uses one of the eye pillows to be brought to a place of peace and stillness for a few minutes of their day, knowing that there has been so much love and thought go into making these special products.
Mum and I (Tracy and Amy) started our business, Hello Fred, 2 months after I gave birth to my first daughter, Lyla (nickname - Fred, hence the name of the business).Tracy works from her sewing room in our family home in Tasmania, while I work from my home near Torquay in Victoria. We Facetime each other every day to chat about the business, new products, and of course, the latest challenges or funny things that have happened with my girls. We feel very blessed to not only have a business like we do, but also to share such a strong, special mother-daughter relationship. We are open to whatever Hello Fred might evolve into, and are excited about the future and the endless possibilities it may bring.
