MEET THE MUM BEHIND THE BRAND

Little Tin Lids was started when owner Tegan was on maternity leave with her first baby. She was looking for a gift to give to her husband to celebrate the arrival of their first Little Tin Lid when she started experimenting with one of her child’s ultrasounds, which she found while packing away bub’s things from hospital. Before putting them in storage she decided to take a photo of the scan and see if she could clean the image up to frame it. With Tegan’s background in photography and graphic design she started to develop an image processing technique and pre-made brush styles to apply to the image. The end result was a beautiful fine art image of a blush pink ultrasound, which soon became a much-loved gift for her husband and is now a standout piece of art in her daught’s  nursery.

WHERE DOES THE NAME LITTLE TIN LID COME FROM?

“Besides being Aussie slang for kids and the name of an Australian children’s pop group from the 90’s, Little Tin Lids has personal meaning to Tegan. It was a term that Tegan’s mum and grandparents used regularly to refer to her and her brothers throughout their childhood. So when she was looking for the perfect name for her new business venture and her mum suggested Little Tin Lid, it just seemed to be the perfect fit.”.
