Scruffy Little Herbert

Established in 2013, Scruffy Little Herbert is an independent business born out of the love of quirky design and individuality.

Set in the heart of The Potteries, Stoke on Trent we create products that we love from the pride we have of the city.

Created by artist and mum of two toddlers Esme Talbot, the kids provide a lot of inspiration for the designs. We want to teach the next generation about all the things that make Stoke on Trent one of the friendliest cities to live in and show them the talent and creativity that makes the city unique.

All our clothing is screen printed using traditional techniques and this means that they are as unique as the wearer.

We cater for Scruffy Little Herberts both young and old, so there’s something for all the family in one place. Making gift shopping easy peasy lemon squeezy.

We post all of our exciting clothing and ceramic range both within the UK and overseas.
