Product story

From her grandmother’s own remedies, made from herbs handpicked from the mountains in Tai Po, to her father’s own clinic in Manchester, traditional Chinese medicine has long been a part of founder Stephanie Hannington-Suen’s family. It informs Homework, in its exploration of herbs and in its sense of balance. For Mas Santo, she explores the scents of basil, bay leaf, lemon, and tomato vine – supported by the woody Atlas cedar – to bring us to rural Spain.
