Lotta's House

Heather, leicestershire

Hello, I'm Charlotte, I absolutely adore embroidery, the beautiful texture and depth it brings to textiles. I love to make personalised embroidered gifts that mark those all important milestones in life. Lotta's House is a brand that celebrates individuality and positivity, fabrics are embellished to create thoughtful gifts that can be treasured. Each piece that I sew truly is a labour of love, surfaces are slowly created as each stich is sewn and the design emerges.

The story behind the business
Meet Lotta's House

Having four small children, my life was consumed by caring for them, I was longing for a creative outlet, something where I could find a little bit of who I used to be, needing a direction, I set about making decorations for their bedrooms, this quickly became making gifts for friends, which soon became friends of friends asking to buy these products, organically Lotta's House became a business and as my children grew so did the product range. I first learnt free hand machine embroidery on an old beloved Bernina sewing machine over 20 years ago, three machines later and I am as obsessed as ever. I absolutely love the texture and sumptuous feel of a heavily embroidered surface. The ability to colour and draw in thread really is a labour of love, and many hours are spent sewing ideas into thoughtful gifts that can be treasured by the recipient.
