Meri Meri

It began in Los Angeles, 1985 . . . Meredithe (who's childhood nickname was Meri Meri) sitting at her kitchen table . . . some scissors and pens, a BIG pot of glitter. Meri Meri's first cards were made that way. The company grew from that little network of Moms working from home from Meredithe's designs and direction.

Meri Meri doesn't design on kitchen tables anymore. They now work in studios in a 400 year old building, overlooking an ancient churchyard in a little town called Cheltenham, 1 hour west of London, England. But they still have their scissors and their pens and all the glitter.
