Our story started back in 1997, when founder Kerri Binnie (the B in Busy B) was travelling around Australia in an old VW camper van. As a trained product designer, she was always searching for tricky problems to solve. Remembering all the festive clutter that inevitably comes along at Christmas, she improvised with some cereal packets to create early prototypes of a rather nifty Christmas card holder. The following year, New York's MoMA ordered 10,000 of them – and suddenly she was in business!
Now Kerri was actively searching for new opportunities to create ingenious products that would help tame the mayhem of modern life. New ideas came from listening to her multi-tasking friends and trying to solve their everyday challenges. Becoming a super busy mum-of-three brought loads of fresh insights for Kerri, and by focusing on helping people be more beautifully organised, she'd really found her niche. Plenty of smart products followed, and lots of design awards, too.
In the early days, it was just Kerri and her ‘right hand woman’ Rosy, working from a tiny spare bedroom. As the business flourished, they moved into a bigger workspace in Edinburgh, which is now home to an amazing team who are dedicated to helping people make the most of their precious time. As well as our e-store, we're proud to see our award-winning products on the shelves of loads of brilliant shops, including some of the UK’s most high profile retailers
