In light of the current pandemic, I would like to reassure you that I am doing everything I can to prioritise the health and safety of my customers. I have outlined below some relevant information, but if you have any further questions please feel free to get in touch.

I will continue to take new orders until I am otherwise unable. If this situation changes at any point (i.e. if Royal Mail services are affected), all outstanding orders will be offered a full refund.

I am adhering to all health and hygiene advice from the World Health Organisation and will only continue to fulfill orders as long as I am fit and healthy.

From experience with other coronaviruses, we know that these types of viruses don’t survive long on objects, such as letters or parcels. This complements the highly publicised guidance from PHE for people to wash their hands more often than usual using soap and hot water."

Personalised Hand Embroidery from Cardiff

I'm a self taught hand embroidery artist and the one-woman-band behind Delicious Monster Tea. Hands down (no pun intended), hand embroidery is one of my absolute favourite things to do and I feel incredibly lucky to be able to say that I am now a full-time embroiderer!

I never set out to run a creative business, in fact up until very recently I would always have described myself as "left-brained", with a degree in Economics and many years working as a maths tutor. But in 2016, I started to teach myself embroidery one evening and very accidentally started a business. Two years later, that accidental business had grown and I took the leap and quit my day job. Another two years later and here I am, a full-time embroideress with a right-brain that is growing day by day.

When I'm not working in my home studio or knee deep in some Stephen King horror, I like to spend as much time as possible outside with my big muddy boots on, nerding it up big time over all the wild flowers and birds. My passion for all things nature is one of the reasons that I have worked so hard to build Delicious Monster Tea as a sustainable brand.

This little business of mine has grown considerably since 2016, and I have hand embroidered over 3500 organic cotton t-shirts since then, including those worn by Fearne Cotton, Rachel Stevens and Annie Mac! I've also worked on some dream commissions, including 14 metres of table runners for a NOTHS event, a top secret wedding dress and matching bridal denim jackets. More recently, I've developed a range of DIY embroidery kits for people to try at home - they've taken off in a BIG way and I'm so excited to have spread my love for embroidery to some new crafters.

Along the way I have tried to be as open and honest as possible about running a small business - the highs and lows, and my attempts to live a healthy work-life "balance". You can find out more about the business side of things by following me on social media using the links below.

Much love,

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

By looking after our clothes we can help them to last as long as possible. A lot of care has gone into making your item and, if the same care is taken when washing, it should last for many years.

Washing: all embroidered items are suitable for machine washing. The embroidery has been carefully reinforced and will survive many, many washes! To maintain the colour of your item, please wash with similar colours.

Drying: I would recommend air drying your clothing, not only because it will help keep items in a good condition, but it is also better for the environment. Simply peg up outside on a dry day, or hang indoors until dry.

Ironing: all embroidered items are suitable for ironing on a cotton setting.

Sizing details

I stock two styles of adult t-shirt: fitted and oversized.

These t-shirts are suitable for all genders.

The fitted t-shirts have a tapered waist and slightly capped sleeves.

The oversized t-shirts have longer, boxier sleeves and a straight up and down waist.

Further sizing details can be found in the product photos.

Sustainability

I am very conscious of the impact that my products have on the environment and have worked hard to run Delicious Monster Tea as a sustainable business.

All t-shirts, baby grows and sweatshirts are made from 100% GOTS Standard organic cotton and are PETA approved vegan.

The production of t-shirts, baby grows and sweatshirts is climate neutral, wind powered and fair trade with a low water footprint. Production undergoes annual audits to comply with the Fair Wear Foundation (FWF) Code of Labour Practices.

Every order is sent in 100% paper packaging which is easily recycled.
