About Hauslife

Hauslife was born during a visit to the inimitable and buzzing city of Marrakech in Morocco. On a visit back in 2016, I found myself surrounded by the most exquisite homewares, textiles and jewellery, all of which I wanted to take back with me to furnish my new home. 

I managed to squeeze (somehow) a leather pouffe and some beautiful cactus silk cushion covers into my hold luggage, but I left feeling like I could have bought so many more items. Another holiday wasn't on the cards, so I set about trying to find pieces like the ones I'd seen online. 

My searches were fruitless - the furnishings were either incredibly overpriced or had exorbitant shipping costs. At the same time, I was spending so much time trying to find lovely things to fill my new home - lovely crockery, soft furnishings, towels and more, and again I was struck by the high prices I would have to pay if I wanted something out of the ordinary. Furthermore, I couldn't guarantee that these products were bought at a fair price from the makers. 

So, in an atmosphere of frustration followed by a moment of enlightenment, Haus was born with some simple but earnest aims. Hauslife aims to bring together a truly lovely collection of items, sourced from around the world (including good old Blighty) in one place, all at a fair price. On this site I hope you'll find that perfect touch for your sitting room, ideal gift for your best friend or even a new towel to take on your holidays. 

In November 2022 we took the steps to open our homewares and gift shop in my home city of Bath. We started with a pop-up on Upper Borough Walls, then moving to our permanent home on Abbeygate Street. This much larger store has scope for our furniture and homewares, alongside lots of displays of clothing, nightwear and gifts. 

I hope you love Hauslife as much as I do and come to think of it as a great place to see craftsmanship from across the world, all sold at a price that is fair to you and bought at a price which is fair to the artisan who made it. 

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us.
