Made By Maddox

After leaving school at 18, Hattie MacAndrews interned in fashion journalism for a year whilst taking a short course in the evenings at Central Saint Martins.  Keen to get straight into work, instead of going to university, she moved to New York for six months, interning in a fashion journalism start-up before moving back to England to start her own company.

With a very simple idea of creating something spectacular from a standard household item, Hattie sold her beloved car ‘Maddox’ and setup Made by Maddox, a company specialising in bespoke matchboxes. Each matchbox is individually crafted by a carpenter in Berkshire, before being hand-painted. The colour of every surface is individually chosen, before being carefully painted onto each and every box. Each box receives six different treatments before being wrapped and shipped off.

The company has gone from strength to strength, recently featuring in the January issue of Tatler and in Stylist’s 'The Style List'.
