Our Story


Northern Brights is a clothing company specialising in tees, sweatshirts and accessories for children and adults.

We are two sisters, Han (on the left) and Jess (on the right). A primary school teacher and designer from the north with a love of bright colours, feel good words and the desire to share the love of creativity, has led us to create the Northern Brights brand.

With our parents' constant love, support and encouragement to start our own business, we tried and failed at many. In 2018 it all started with pom poms and Pom Tiddly Pom was born. After a couple of years of making and selling pom pom accessories we decided to change direction, clothing being the focus. Fast forward a few years and there's not a single pom pom in sight!


Inspired by our wonderful dad who we devastatingly lost to cancer in October 2019, we created a star in his memory which is featured on all our products and appears on the left sleeve of each one of our garments. To us, this means not only having a little piece of him in all that we do but as the fabulous poet, Donna Ashworth has so beautifully written for us;

"There's much joy to be found in a star,
as they cut through the darkness above,
let them tell of all that you are,
and remind you of those whom you love"

We hope you can find your own special meaning for the star too. May our products bring you joy and brighten up your day! If there is anything we can help you with, please get in touch!

With much love & gratitude,
Jess & Han xxx
