Hi, I'm Wednesday...

...and I'm the woman behind Noff & Nana!
Noff and Nana is named after our first dog (Banoffee) and banana’s...which was the planned name for our second dog, but we decided it didn’t suit him and changed it to Chip!

I started N&N back in 2020 with some fabric and a £30 sewing machine - through trial and error I taught myself how to make bows and bandana's (and very quickly realised I'd need a much better sewing machine!)

Over the years I've worked hard to expand my product range, and now I'm using my own designs to create clothing, bags, hats, stationery and so much more!

Proud to be eco-friendly

My main goal with N&N (besides making you and your pooches look as stylish as possible!), was to create a business that was as eco-friendly as possible, and In 2021, Noff and Nana was nominated for a “Love our Planet” award, in recognition of our planet friendly product options and efforts to improve our carbon footprint...and we won!!

Keep scrolling to learn more about the different ways I try to make Noff & Nana as eco-friendly as possible!

Introducing Noff, and Chip!

Noff is a 7.5yr old Podenco Ibicenco (Ibizan Hound) that we rescued from Hope for Podencos in 2020. He'd been rescued from a Spanish farm along with 12 other dogs - they were affectionately named The Bakers Dozen, and all given baking related names - we felt Banoffee just suited him too well to change - his freckles are definitely reminiscent of a Banoffee Pie!

Chip is a 1.5yr old Podenco x Xoloitzcuintle (We think) that we also rescued from Hope for Podencos in 2022. He'd been abandoned at the rescue centre - someone tied him up to the front gate and drove away! As soon as I saw the video of him, I emailed HfP and told them I wanted to adopt him - now I just needed to convince my husband that we needed a second dog!
Chip is mostly hairless, so you will very often see him sporting a wide array of jumpers and coats to keep him warm!

I've opened a shop!

In January 2024 I took the huge leap to make Noff & Nana my full time job, and I became fully self employed (scary!)

I've opened up a store in Afflecks, an icon in the heart of Manchester’s Northern Quarter. Afflecks is made up entirely of independent retailers, and is well known in the city for being a safe space for everyone and anyone, which is why I knew it would be the perfect home for Noff and Nana.

You can find us on the second floor, next to Beg, Steal & Borrow, and Sour Cherry

Eco-friendly stuff ✿

  • We're planting trees!

    We plant one tree with every single order placed through the website, and for each sale made in store.

    Scroll down to see how many trees we've planted!

  • Sustainable Clothing

    All of our clothing, hats, and bags, are made using either organic, sustainable, or recycled fabrics and materials

  • We don't like plastic!

    We actively avoid using plastic as much as we possibly can do - however, some of our items do need to be protected, but still visible for customers to see in store, so in these instances, the plastic used will be either compostable or biodegradable.

  • Recycled packaging

    All of our packaging is fully recyclable and/or compostable.
    (This includes mailer bags that we occasionally need to use!)
    We also exclusively use couriers who are committed to working towards
    Net Zero carbon emissions

  • Planet friendly raw materials

    We can happily say that the huge majority of our products are made using recycled alternatives - our stickers, cards and art prints are printed on recycled card, at a printers with carbon offsetting - our pin badges are made using recycled hypoallergenic metals - grooming products and treats are all made from 100% natural ingredients...the list goes on!

  • Offsetting Carbon Emissions

    We are also offsetting our carbon emissions
    As an order is placed through the website, the carbon emissions are calculated, and Shopify purchases carbon removal credits and retires them on our behalf. These credits are funding companies that are proving, scaling, and commercializing climate solutions for massive impact in the long term.

We're Planting Trees!

Noff & Nana have partnered with Ecologi, who work around the globe on a number of planet saving projects.

It’s now common knowledge that one of the best tools to tackle the climate crisis and keep our temperatures from rising above 1.5C is to plant trees. They are also crucial in preventing ecological collapse.

Ecologi have a range of amazing tree planting partners who are able to responsibly plant millions of trees a month on their behalf.
