Every product carries their own story, they have marks of their makers and characteristics of the material used. We collaborate with independent makers from around the world to create beautiful and timeless pieces.
I started the Goldrick company with the ambition of creating natural living environments, making a life alongside nature to support our wonderful planet. Our planet needs our help - we have to use less and move away from single-use plastic and celebrate natural alternatives. It is estimated that we are producing over 300 million tons of plastic every year, 50% of which will only be used once. More than 8 million tons of plastic is dumped into our oceans every year. By choosing natural and reusable products we are reducing landfill waste and we are making a difference to our planet.
I was born in St.Albans, England and raised in both Germany and England, and I am currently residing in a small village on the Wild Atlantic Way of Ireland with my husband and daughter.
I founded Goldrick in 2018 when living in Battersea, London. We had a tiny flat on the 5th floor and it was quickly filling up with boxes and products as my business grew. I dreamed of living in the countryside, being close to nature and running my own business. This is when we decided to pack up everything and move to a peaceful place called Kinsale. We are very close to the Atlantic ocean, the coast and it's wildlife inspires me everyday.
The focus of my products will always be natural, mindful and sustainable. I want our products to celebrate the independent maker and the beauty of natural material.
I believe that conscious living leads to a more authentic, beautiful and rewarding life. I hope that my brand inspires people to see the beauty and purpose in nature and the everyday living.
Behind Our Products
We believe that by being mindful of consumerism, designing thoughtful, small batch products we hope to make people aware of the story and efforts that go into every product. Slowing down and being mindful of what we purchase can help to have a positive impact on our daily living but also help our our planet and the next generation.
Our woolen products are handcrafted in Nepal by an ethical and fair trade company.
Our linen products are hand made by a talented seamstress in the Peak District, UK.
We have two types of beeswax candles, our marble candles are created by mixing and kneading different coloured beeswax by hand. For this range we work together with a recognised workshop in Germany. The workshop integrates people with disabilities and aims to enable them to participate in normal working life. They become real craftsmen, who are proud of their products they make and the independence they earn. Every candle purchased from this collection supports the inspiring people who crafted these candles.
Our tealights and occasion candles are made by independent beekeepers and makers, they have their own beehives and keep the tradition of beekeeping and candle making alive.
Our brushes are ethically handcrafted in a small family owned brushworks in the Black Forest of Germany. Established over 140 years ago they are one of the last remaining artisanal brush house factories in Germany. They combine artisanal craft with beautiful design.
