About

We are Louisa and Emmms and together we make up Loumms. We live in South-east London, where Lou has a proper garden, but Emmms has an enormous stash, so together we manage rather well.

We can't quite remember when, though it was probably and over a bottle of wine, almost definitely in the Marquis of Granby, that we discovered a shared passion for making things: apricot jam and barbequed peppers, home-grown tomatoes and container cucumbers, sock patterns and yarn out of camp 70s polyester...

Our jobs mean that we either live inside our own heads (Emmms, editor and part-time lecturer) or are bored out of our gourd (Lou, croupier), so any chance to create something tangible is grabbed at eagerly. With Loumms, we're on a mission to grow, make, create, re-use and recycle as much of daily life as possible, and make it pretty.
