Mibo is a company based in an old stable tucked away a stone's throw from the seafront in Hove.
"We started up back in 2001 with the aim of creating well designed, lasting products for the home. From humble beginnings selling lampshades at Old Spitalfields Market we soon found ourselves with orders from stores such as Liberty and the Conran shop. Since then Mibo has expanded its range, more recently developing make-at-home products for children (also very popular with adults!) which encourage them to develop their motor skills and give a quite thrilling satisfaction of turning something initially 2D into something fabulously 3D. We have also just teamed up with French company Coq en Pate to create a range of childrens' accessories."
We love Mibo’s make-them-yourself paper animals (all made in the UK using recycled paper and vegetable inks) with their subtle combination of characterful shapes and geometric patterns.
