Excited to be a part of the Moncler House of Genius project - a showcase of limited edition objects to support Moncler's collaboration with 8 fashion innovators, including Craig Green, Simon Rocha and Palm Angels and Pierpaolo Piccioli. Curated by Sarah Andelman, HAM was invited to dress its skiing Rabbits in Moncler’s signature jacket. We made artwork, cards and pins, all of which are now showing in The Moncler House of Genius pop-ups in New York and Tokyo. Find out more here.
Meet our four brand new Rabbits: Reading, Golfing, Sailing and Guitar. All are available as a hand pulled screen print and greeting card. We've also added Golfing and Reading Rabbit to our fine china mug collection. A massive thanks to everyone that shared their design ideas and Rabbit recommendations - hope you like the end result!
Not that long ago, HAM and I were shortlisted for two awards: Natwest’s Creative Industries Entrepreneur of the Year and the Aviva Women of the Future Arts and Culture Prize. To be nominated, particularly alongside so many inspiring businesses and individuals, was plenty! But this week we attended the award ceremonies and are elated and shocked to share that we won both. Suffice to say, the team have been celebrating a lot over the past couple of days and more importantly, I've been celebrating all of them. HAM really wouldn't be a fraction of what it is now without the incredible people that make it happen, including HAM’s amazing extended family of suppliers, freelancers and retailers, and of course all our customers who give their continued support and encouragement. Thank you! Jo

Earlier this year The Body Shop invited HAM to create a series of ‘Activist Rabbits’ to support their Forever Against Animal Testing in Cosmetics cause - a global campaign to secure 8 million signatures to take to the United Nations calling for a worldwide ban. This month they hit their target! And now head off to the UN to present their case. A massive thanks to all of you that bought the HAM x Body Shop boxes, got involved and played their part. The Rabbits salute you!
Bit of exciting news in the HAM camp. We've been shortlisted for two awards!
