A Humble Luxury
NATURAL TEXTILES AND FAMILIAR COMFORTS FOR THE LOVE OF HOME
Inspired by the “love of home”, Hemsworth Mercantile is home to precious handmade textiles: throw blankets, towels and robes—made from 100% Turkish cotton and pure linen. Cherished for its time-enduring softness and durability, these fabrics offer a fusion of beauty and functionality.
The Hemsworth collection is sensitively curated by designer Bambs Hemmings. Designed like a small neighbourhood shop, this online community store offers a classic mercantile experience, embedded with homegrown values and genuine service. It’s also home to other complementary brands that carry well-made comfort items and accessories.

THE ART OF EMPATHY
We perceive space using all our senses. To trigger these effects to their most therapeutic potential, I impart empathy into my creative approach, allowing me to create comforting experiences that connect with our human condition.
The power of colour and texture has a remarkable ability to inspire feelings of tranquility and security. By relying on a few simple, functional comforts for either at home or traveling abroad, we can create an environment that’s grounded and spiritually-balanced—a type of meaningful minimalism as I call it, which defines my entire curation process.
Hemsworth Mercantile is a culmination of my background as a graphic designer, interior decorator and retail manager. As a woman-led business, this concept of a small-scale store aligns with my hands-on style and desire to feel close to my customers, friends and family.
THE SIMPLE JOY OF HOME
My love for Turkish cotton and linen textiles stems from the joy and comfort they bring to our day-to-day lives. In the most simple way, these comforts elevate our rituals at home: making up our bed after a Sunday sleep-in, simmering stew in the kitchen or lighting incense in the bathroom—all while encouraging us to relax and slow down.
