Behind Strange is Bristol-based married couple Jane and Gavin Strange. Together, jewellery designer Jane and graphic designer Gavin, wanted to build a contemporary company creating and selling beautiful products.
From homeware to jewellery to stationery, the products offer a wide-range of styles, reflecting their combined tastes. The items are hand-picked from a selection of their favourite independent makers, as well as creating their own STRANGE collections.
With their pet greyhound Arnie as their icon, Jane and Gavin want to create something honest, personal and beautiful. A celebration of craft and creativity.
