The Story


I'm Lauren, the face and hands behind Edie & Joe, which is named after my lovely Grandparents.

I am a fashion design graduate with years of experience in the clothing industry. Outside of work, sewing, pattern cutting and designing has always been more than just a hobby, it was only a matter of time before it became a business.

The first bunny soft toy was made as a Christmas gift in 2013 and was named Flopsy. From this first Instagram post it became so popular that it inspired the launch of the Edie & Joe brand on Etsy in June 2015.


The product range has since grown, and I now stock a variety of different soft toys as well as nursery decorations such as cushions, blankets and prints. All of my products are handmade by myself, in my home studio in Yorkshire.

The best feeling is knowing I have put a smile on a little one's face, and created something they can cherish forever.

From a small idea to a growing brand, I am excited to see what the future holds for Edie & Joe whilst continuing to spread the happiness!
