We are very happy to announce that HoutenPlank is debuting at The Olive Tree Market on July 5th. The maker Melanie Muddle is the brains behind this gorgeous brand.
Melanie say, “HoutenPlank is the Dutch for ‘wooden board’ and brings together the things that I am passionate about; family, my heritage, food and desire to create beautiful, functional home wares. Designed with function in mind, my range of Planks not only showcases the beauty of food, but provides a practical kitchen tool that ultimately brings people together.”
We asked Melanie how she came to begin on the road to creating HoutenPlank. “It’s funny how during the toughest times, some of the greatest ideas are birthed. This is true for me. A few years ago I left behind my corporate job (which I loved) to focus on raising a family. Surprising, the new mother gig was much harder than I could have ever anticipated. It was in the thick fog of fatigue following the arrival of my second baby that the idea of HoutenPlank was birthed.”
If the images of some of the range are anything to go by Olive Tree thinks that HoutenPlank is going to be a massive success. Make sure to visit Melanie and HoutenPlank at The Olive Tree Market on July 5th.
