Our story

Manor Road began when founder Hannah Craddock discovered that the homeware designs that she loved were largely absent from the Australian market. As a frequent dinner host, she would often have to settle for napkins that weren’t in the elegant style that she loved. Realising that many other Australians were also missing out on this touch of everyday elegance, Hannah took it upon herself to fashion her own.

The first shipment of napkins arrived, available in three distinguished designs. After approaching a number of retail stores, these designs were received enthusiastically and orders were quickly placed. As the demand for Hannah’s designs grew, so did the demand for new products. Hannah listened closely to the requests and feedback from her partner stores and customers, using this to develop and refine her offering.

Soon, the demand for these new products meant that the business was too large for a single person. Her husband Jay Craddock, recognising the potential of her design capability, joined her. What started with napkins, quickly expanded to candles, hand-soaps, tea-towels and wax papers. Supported by Jay’s entrepreneurial mindset and commercial experience, Hannah’s passion for elegant design was transformed into the Manor Road establishment as we know it today.

The founders take  great pleasure in Manor Road’s successes in making the everyday elegant.
