Our Story

The journey from concept to creation

We are Helen & Claire, two mums and sisters-in law from Yorkshire. We founded Lister & Bruce in 2018 inspired by Claire’s mum, Janet, and the clever and thoughtful gifts she has been making for her grandchildren since Helen’s daughter, Darcey, was born in 2012.

As the creative journey progressed, we knew we wanted to make and sell items that were beautiful (that was a given!) but we also wanted them to be different and add a little something extra for parents and kids. Whether that be in the materials used or in the functionality of the items, and so with a real focus on design, MyJamas was born. Pyjamas that are not only gorgeous to look and made with 100% super soft organic cotton but that also have our clever matching cuffs to support children with independent dressing at bedtime.

The business is a real family affair with all our children being the original guinea pigs for our collection. Even the company name comes from our mums – Bruce being Helen’s mum’s maiden name and Lister being Janet’s maiden name.

We are so excited to be able to bring our gorgeous range of children's pyjamas and baby sleepsuits to you all and have plenty more ideas for new collections in the future so watch this space.
