Lesley Pockington, Swell Made Co: Owner + designer, Lesley Pocklington, created Swell Made Co. out of a need to simplify, but enhance her life. She wanted to challenge the status quo that comes along with building a career and raising a family (she’s a mom of 2) — so, she designed a business and life that worked for her. A life long lover of good design, stationery and making connections, Lesley wanted to share the simple things that bring her delight. She has developed a style and range of products (that continues to grow) that speak to swell people, like you. @swellmadeco
