The Silver Mushroom Story

Silver Mushroom was started by myself, Rebecca, in 2011 in the heart of the Lancashire countryside, where I grew up. I had a passion to create a lifestyle business that reflected my own values, whilst embracing the changes to modern retail and the onset of internet shopping.

In 2005, I bought my first home, a country cottage in a small Lancastrian village. I became enthusiastic about surrounding myself with things that I love, that will stand the test of time and have minimal impact on the environment. I strongly believe your home should be a sanctuary and a place where you truly love to spend time. This is why all our products are carefully selected with this in mind.

In 2014, my younger sister Emmie decided to join me on my journey, bringing an added flair for interior design and a strong focus on health, wellbeing and family values. Her impeccable taste, combined with a background in graphics livened up our little business and brought a fresh, new angle to our website and marketing.

Our shared love of the countryside and nature led to an increasing awareness of the environmental issues our world faces in the 21st century. This raised awareness has prompted us to put a heavier focus on what we can do to help the environment in any way possible. Since making this conscious decision, we have switched to 100% eco friendly packaging and are focusing on sustainable, responsibly sourced products wherever possible. We hope these small steps that we will continue to make will in time have a big impact on the world we live in.
