Maud N Lil Organic Cotton Toys
Maud N Lil is an Australian based design company which has been specialising in certified organic cotton as a resource since 1993. The company is co-owned and run by Manda Epton and Vicki Hilcke.
Manda obtained a BA (Hons) Design degree in fashion and textiles from Ravensbourne College, London in 1991. She became interested in textile/ environmental issues whilst completing her degree and is the founding member of the business.
Vicki is a fully qualified patternmaker with extensive retail and production experience in the UK and Australian fashion industries. She also managed and co-ordinated a PR consultancy firm before becoming a partner in the business. The focus on organic cotton evolved as the pair realised the influence and damage of this important and versatile crop. They believe there is a very real need to provide well designed products made from sustainable textiles as a market option both locally in Australia and internationally.
