Meet our wee but mighty team – the women who make Their Nibs so special!
Fiona founded Their Nibs in 2003 to bring alive the beautiful prints, original ideas and appealing shapes that inspired her but she couldn’t find anywhere else. Today, she can often be found hunting for even more ideas in Portobello Market accompanied by her 21-year-old son (the original “His Nibs”), her eight-year-old daughter (the real boss) and wise old man dog, Rocket.
Fave pair of Nibs: The white hummingbird, I love matching my little girl in them.
Best thing about having your own business: We donate to the adoption charity Coram and it is an absolute highlight to be able to give back to something that has been so so special to my family.
Sia is our incredible designer whose drawings define our iconic prints. Taking her eclectic inspiration from reading, art history and the wonders of the natural world – including flowers and wild animals – you’ll most often find her wandering through fields learning the names of pretty plants, falling off a surfboard or snuggled up with a good book.
Fave pair of Nibs: The field flowers, it came to life when we were in lockdown and the only place I could go was an outdoor garden centre. The colour and life in the flowers were so comforting to capture.
Best thing about designing for Their Nibs: When an idea turns into a print and becomes a bestseller! I absolutely love seeing my drawings living on people who really enjoy them.
Heather is our warehouse and customer service manager – you'll usually find her answering customers’ queries and questions or fighting with the printer. Her favourite place to be is by the sea and she likes to have a DIY project on the go.
Fave pair of Nibs: Probably my pink lion daisies. The print just makes me happy.
Go-to pizza topping: Controversial, but it's pineapple and mushroom. Deal with it.
Fran is our warehouse supervisor and resident kettle queen (she loves a cuppa!). In her free time she is an aspiring fantasy novelist and when she's not writing, she's reading.
Fave pair of Nibs: My classic satin peacock tile, they feel lovely!
Best advice you've ever been given: Either "Do it for yourself because no one else will" or "Be your own cheerleader".
Beth is our longest-serving pyjama packer and the gift-wrapping guru carefully creating beautiful packages with ribbon and tissue. When she's not at the warehouse, she enjoys singing, playing keyboard and playing with her new puppy Teddy.
Fave pair of Nibs: Satin crane blossom because they look faaancy!
Personal motto: If you believe, you CAN achieve!
Jen joined us last Christmas to help out with the rush. When she's not packing pyjamas, she’s a singer/songwriter, performing regularly in Edinburgh, a busy mum and enthusiastic gym bunny.
Fave pair of Nibs: The pink tropical tigers because I like the bright colours and I'm a crazy cat lady at heart.
What's the most played song on your playlist: Neil Young’s “Don’t Let It Bring You Down”.
