Our Story - Born out of Anxiety

Conceived in the spring of 2014, Maison de Choup is the brainchild of
George Hodgson – a young artist driven by the restless necessity to
create - born out of a crippling anxiety period that nearly ruined his young life.

Initially born of frustration, MdC has evolved from a single voice into a
unique collective of young artists and designers,
creating contemporary minimalist essentials with sound ethics
at the heart of everything we do.

As a part of helping other young people crippled by mental health problems,
we donate 25% of all proceeds from certain designs to YoungMinds
 a small thank you for the help given by
the nameless, wonderful people working with other young sufferers.

Recently launched is our new 'Warrior Collection'.
Part of the Warrior Collection also donates  25% of proceeds to
YoungMinds. Specifically our 'Warrior not Worrier' garments.

Maison de Choup is proud to be supporting Heads Together,
a campaign to the end stigma around mental health by sharing
and raising awareness via social media.

George is also a Youth Ambassador for The Shaw Mind Foundation.
Helping the charity grow on the Youth Side and
overseeing the Youth Advisory Board (YAB)
