With my first ever post, I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Fiona Burrage.
I am 30 years old and live in Norwich, Norfolk (UK) with my husband, Bobby, and (soon-to-be two year-old) son, Stanley. Together, we are the Nor–Folk. Over the coming weeks and months we will be launching a new apparel and homewares store aptly named Nor–Folk.
We live in a converted Factory located in the shadows of Norwich City Football Club. I will show you around our home in another post. In the meantime, here are a few shots from my Instagram feed, @nor_folk.
Our (soon-to-be unveiled) product lines are largely inspired by the landscape and location we live in, however, in execution, they have a far more minimal aesthetic. Bobby and I co-run a graphic design studio, so naturally this will provide another strong influence on our Nor–Folk lines.
I split my time between our studio in the city (with Bobby) as well as a base at home (when Stanley is asleep), however, I consider my primary role as being Stanley’s mum.
The decision to create a line of products was really down to Stanley. I’ve had such fun styling him and our home and recording moments on our Instagram feed that this felt like the natural next step. The first product we’ve created is a simple minimal tote – to introduce our brand. We really didn’t think this would be as well received and has been bought by people all over the globe. The tote, along with a few other prints can be bought in our (temporary) Etsy Shop, although, we’re working very hard on our new product lines and (proper) website that will be launching in the spring.
