The Origin Story

I’ve always had an entrepreneurial spirit. From trying to sell my Mum my homemade mud pies to providing her with a price list for chores, I was destined for business.

We can’t dive into the "Love, Bree" story without acknowledging my roots. "Robjant Couture" was born from the imagination of a 16-year-old high school girl brainstorming business names with her friends. "Robjant" was my surname, the last of my line, and "Couture" because it sounded oh-so-fancy.

Glass beaded jewellery was my thing, and I spent countless nights in my parents' lounge room crafting pieces I couldn't wait to share with the world. The creative bug never left, and as I grew up, I knew I wanted to do more.

With a new direction in mind, I rebranded to "Love, Bree" after consulting with another friend. The name perfectly captured the essence of my curated gift shop, reminiscent of a heartfelt sign-off at the end of a card.

Not long after this transformation, my son (yes, I’ve grown up quite a bit now) spit up on my heat pack. Frustrated, I thought, "Enough is enough! These things need to be easier to wash!" As a lifelong heat pack user, I created my dream heat pack out of necessity—because the best ideas are born from real needs.

Today, "Love, Bree" stands as a thriving small business dedicated to providing high-quality, handmade hot and cold packs that offer comfort and relief. Our products are crafted with care, featuring interchangeable, washable covers that are both environmentally friendly and practical. We take pride in being a part of our customers' self-care routines. With a focus on community and collaboration, "Love, Bree" continues to grow, bringing warmth and comfort to homes across Australia.

About Me

Hey there! I’m Ashleigh, the face behind "Love, Bree". I am so excited that you have come to my corner of the internet. Our collection is filled with fun and unique designs that are sure to brighten your day and add a touch of warmth to your life.

When I’m not at the sewing machine, you can find me cozying up with a fantasy or romance novel, snuggling with my little family—Craig, the literal heavy lifter of the business, our 4-year-old daughter, and 2-year-old son. We love relaxing together, watching Netflix, and indulging in chocolate and my drink of choice, a Coke Zero.

I am incredibly passionate about creating unique, quality heat packs. As a long-time user myself, I understand the importance of designs that are both practical and pretty.

I wouldn’t give up what I do for the world.
