Our Story

Our story began over two decades ago.

Michelle’s previous background originated from specialised hand painting which led her into freelance contracts for bespoke high-end kitchen companies in Devizes.
Later extending her career studying an open university degree with Regent Academy of Fine Arts for Interior Design.

Michelle has always been passionate about product design, innovation, interactions with spaces and most of all attention to detail.

Michelle found it very difficult to find unique well made items of high quality from ethical origins to furnish her clients homes as well as her own country home which consequently resulted in her having to create her own bespoke pieces.

A lover of country living and a wildlife enthusiast has been the dominant theme for Michelles product range.
After creating and designing different items for her own home and clients homes such as cowhide dog beds, wine racks, bird houses, etc, resulted in many commissions for her bespoke and personalised products.
It was then that Michelle realised that there was a demand for the bespoke pieces that she was designing and making.

In October 2020 Michelle decided to combine her knowledge and talents with a very small close-knit team which enabled her to incorporate and create various collections including hand stitched leather accessories and trimmings and as a result she founded MILI Fiddlers Hamlet.

Michelle and her team focus on creating bespoke, high quality, home and personal gifts that are ethical and environmentally friendly and are very keen to use as many reclaimed materials as possible bringing in the old with the new with a taste of country element, hence creating a captivating and unique combination.

Michelle takes much pride with her designs and loves to create integrating her own talents with a skilled leather craftsman whom still uses traditional hand sewing methods and with these skills combined allows MILI to bespoke new products that are unique and personal to their customers.

Please do not hesitate to contact MILI for any requests that you may have as they will do their best to meet any demands making your item bespoke and personal to you.
