About Florence & Ottie

My name is Clare Hopkins and I’m the maker behind Florence & Ottie. I’m an Illustrator & Designer living in London but originally from Worcestershire. I have a degree in Textile Design for Fashion & Interiors.

Where does the name Florence & Ottie come from I hear you ask…

My Grandpa.
On a summer holiday when I was very little, my Grandpa became poorly with a typical British cold & I spent the holiday looking after him… well, as much as a toddler could. Ever since I’ve been known as Florence after Florence Nightingale.

All of the products on Florence & Ottie are designed & made by me here in my studio in London, each one drawn or sewn by hand to make it that little bit more special.
