Our Story

Once upon a time there was a couple who lived very happily with their two children and a rather large deaf dog.

The man stayed at home to look after their boys and the house. The girl loved life as an agent but wanted to combine her eye for a trend with building something they could all work on together and so Hot Tomato was born.

That was back in 2007 and we can now report that along with the children, the dog and the parents, Hot Tomato has grown a bit! Our dynamic little team continues to thrive and bring you gorgeous goodies from around the globe and we feel privileged that you are considering allowing our collection to play a part in your own business - thank you!
