FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are your products your own designs?
The majority of the items in our store are 100% our own designs. However we also stock a small selection of products that have both our own and our wholesalers creative input.Our entire Geometric Collection including our Dinosaurs, and Woodland Animals are original designs created by Hunter & Lola - and are subject to copyright.We're proud to be home of the original animal-eared stacking rainbows. Our Fox, Bear, and Unicorn rainbow stackers are original designs by Hunter & Lola, and are subject to copyright. Our Galaxy, Rainbow, Mermaid, Woodland and Arctic collections all include original design concepts and artwork by Hunter & Lola. And are all made using FSC Certified materials. All of our pennants are also designed in-house by us, however we use a series of reknowned quotes/phrases, and/or pre-made craft items from our wholesaler to produce these particular products.We do not knowingly reproduce anyone elses designs or products, and aim to be original as much as possible with our designs. However a small number of our items such as our various cloud products and arrow dreamcatchers are purchased from a wholesaler, and therefore may be similar to other stores using this same supplier.
What materials do you use?

Are your paints child-friendly?
Yes! All of our products are painted using non-toxic, water-based acrylic paints. Additionally, our various craft mediums including glitters, textured pastes, and embossing powders/mousses are all non-toxic and water-based.All of our craft mediums comply with both EU safety testing regulations, and US ACMI AP regulations.
How do you protect your wooden products once painted?
Most of our products are left as they are after painting. However our solid wood decorations are sealed after painting using our own homemade beeswax polish. This helps protect the wood, and provides better longevity of the paint. They're then hand-buffed to a soft and satiny finish before posting.
What's in your beeswax polish?
Our beeswax polish is homemade using only two ingredients. 100% Organic Jojoba Oil, and Natural Beeswax.
At Hunter & Lola, we strive to support other local businesses as much as possible. Which is why our beeswax is obtained from a local Bee Keeper, who's swarms are located nearby our own home in North East Essex. The predominant crops surrounding these swarms are Starflowers (Borage varieties) and Oilseed Rape. Providing a distinctively sweet scent to our beeswax polish - Which smells lovely!
How do you support other businesses or services through your store?
Where possible, all of our products are sourced locally, from ethical and independent suppliers. We currently use only three suppliers for our raw materials, all of which are based in the UK. All of our wood products are designed and cut here in the UK.
